Vegas Lounge Karaoke

If you were to guess the vibe of the Vegas Lounge based solely on the name, you might expect to find a bar with a retro "Rat Pack" style. But you would be wrong. This is not what you will actually find at the Vegas Lounge in Northeast, though, oddly enough, one night I did see a dead ringer for Fat Elvis singing a cover of Clarence Carter's "Strokin'." So maybe there is something to the name. Overall, the Vegas Lounge is an unpretentious bar with a VFW feel to it. Order up something with hard liquor, or a Miller Lite, but stay away from fancy beers at all costs, and you should have a good time. The bar is decent-sized, with a nice outdoor seating area populated by smokers and those who don't mind the cold weather. Karaoke, which runs from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesdays, and Thursdays through Sundays, is low-key and low-pressure. The mix at the bar is very eclectic; on any given night you may run into a wedding party, a toothless drunk who's been drinking since noon, and a group of recent French immigrants. If you're not willing to sing, be prepared to cheer for those who do.
