The Scene

A quirky zebra-striped awning and neon pink sign announce the presence of Planet Rose, a hole-in-the-wall karaoke bar with a wacky, fun-loving vibe.

A quirky zebra-striped awning and neon pink sign announce the presence of Planet Rose, a hole-in-the-wall karaoke bar with a wacky, fun-loving vibe.

The fact that the venue’s doors conveniently open directly onto the fluorescent pink bar is no coincidence – it’s no secret that the Rose is intent on getting its customers good and drunk, and the lively brother and sister who own the joint set an excellent example as they sling back shots along with the guests.

The wild times and wild motif continue once past the narrow bar area – which is amusingly decorated with guitars and keyboards played by Sesame Street puppets – where the space opens up into a roomy lounge dominated by zebra-print banquettes and ottomans, leopard-print carpeting, and a crowd of drunken young professionals, hipsters, and hopeful Broadway stars belting out classic rock, rap, and show tunes.

The friendly staff and anything-goes attitude make it easy for newcomers to feel right at home among the crowd of raucous regulars and the ubiquitous screaming bachelorettes, and even those with stage fright have no excuse – the place boasts wireless microphones that allow guests to sing from wherever they happen to be standing.

It’s impossible to escape the booming karaoke music in this whimsical hideaway, and the infectiously energetic crowd and tastefully divey décor make a night out at Planet Rose an event to remember – or not.

Tip from Emma:

Come with a group of friends for Happy Hour – the drinks are cheap and the karaoke is free until 8pm. That way you can sing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ without anyone getting p.o.’d that you’re hogging the mic.

  • Crowd

    Mix of young professionals, groups of girls, hipsters, theater types, and bachelorette/birthday party groups, early 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Continuous karaoke music with an impressive selection of songs. Four flat-screen TVs display lyrics.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Happy Hour daily 4–8pm. An adjoining room can be rented for private parties and events.

  • Prices

    Karaoke $2/song, free first song with drink purchase on weekdays. Beer $4–$6, wine $8, cocktails $7–$8.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Anything goes. Sneakers and jeans, skirts and heels, feather boas.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Fridays and Saturdays are busiest, so there’s more of a chance to sing on weeknights.

  • Close By

    Crocodile Lounge (325 East 14th Street) offers a free pizza (yes, the whole pizza) with any drink purchase.

I'm a little biased because I HATE Karaoke. I might be the only Asian who's ever said that. My friends that like karaoke however, always feel a compulsion to stop in here whenever we pass it on a night out. For my friends, they have a great karaoke menu, a non-judgemental crowd, good sound system, and not too long of a wait to get on the mic. For me, they have some psychedelic crazy decor going on, inexpensive drinks, and usually at least one other person who has been unwillingly dragged into the bar. On the other hand, there's never a shortage of people watching and judging to be had, so I don't complain too much when I'm forced to stay here for a round or two.
