Not impressed and still smoking – We haven't been there in long time. Wanted to do karaoke. Karaoke was so - so and I wouldn't recommend it there. But, no matter what , the place is not smoke free. There is no enforcement of the no smoking law here. Patrons simply do not use ashtrays and I guess that makes it alright. Believe me, the karaoke on Friday is not that good to make me want to go back and sit in the nasty smoke. Dark, yeah, and smoke filled daily.
Fairly typical easygoing dive bar. – I've been out with my dad to sing Karaoke on many occasions, and last night might have been the best. Round Boy Entertainment does the Karaoke, and they have an extensive catalog to sing from. The volume is set just right as well, so that when someone is bad you don't have to try too hard to ignore them, and if someone is good, you can listen if you want to.
The bar itself was about what you would expect from a hole-in-the wall place in a strip mall. It was a little dark, and the clientele was decidedly working class people, mostly in their 30's and 40's, but with a few youngins thrown in. Drinks were cheap, and the bartender was friendly and attentive. I wouldn't necessarily go here to have a night on the town, but if you are looking for something to do on a Friday night that isn't just your typical club scene, bringing a few friends to Groucho's and making a fool of yourself would be a good choice.
