If you need a place for team bonding, head to Yamasho. This Japanese restaurant has ten karaoke rooms for you and your coworkers to belt out your favorite childhood songs, mutually embarrass yourselves, and ultimately grow stronger as a crew. If you’re not into karaoke, the main dining room is large enough for groups and has a few TVs on the wall for when you run out of things to talk about. The drink list is extensive with a large selection of sake and while the sushi isn’t bad, the food here isn’t the main attraction - like when they serve refreshments at a freshman dorm hall meet and greet. Either way, it’s a good place to break the ice or pregame for a fun night ahead.
