If you’re willing to sing anywhere more public than your shower, then you either played Ariel in your middle school production of Little Mermaid, or you don’t give a sh*t what other people think. Either way, go to Karaoke City in K-Town. The huge, seventh-floor space has a bunch of private rooms with wraparound leather booths that cost $40 per hour, or if you’re ready to pull a Maggie Rogers, go on stage in the main bar area up front.

Jongro is one of our favorite Korean barbecue spots in the city, although it gets pretty busy. Put your name in, then go sing some karaoke.
