Koreatown’s Soopsok is a great karaoke spot, which automatically means it’s a great place to party. Plus, with private rooms available, no one but your closest friends will hear your brutal rendition of “Edge of Seventeen” (which is probably for the best). Open since 1986, they’re a neighborhood staple, with the crowds - and the song selection - to prove it. That song selection is not only massive, but always up-to-date, so if you’re the kind of person who needs to sing Top 40 at karaoke, they’ve got you covered.
