Book: Not bad, nothing special.
Set-up: The TV screen being used for a monitor is in a bit of an awkward place - not close and above your head. The raised area to your left creates a bit of an arena seating vibe though, which I think I'll like if there's anybody there paying attention to you.
Crowd: sparse and not terribly into it, which according to the inevitable karaoke regular there that I knew from elsewhere, was unusual.
Given that it's walking distance away and has a surprisingly non-awful kitchen, it'll do for a regular Wednesday night karaoke spot.
