A bar soap is coming to a neighborhood near the Capitol, a Washington state barber shop is opening its doors in Hollywood and a bar in New York City is offering a new way to get ready for a night of dancing.
On Tuesday, a chain of restaurants and bars will open in cities across the country to serve a new cocktail style of karaoke, an event that combines dance, music and alcohol.
Karaoke is a fast-casual, event-driven format that allows patrons to listen to songs with a small, handheld speaker and then dance to them.
Karaoke bars have been popping up in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and Atlanta, and some even opened in Hollywood, where singer and musician Beyoncé is a star.
Some of the new venues will offer a menu of traditional drinks like vodka shots, tequila shots, and whiskey shots, as well as cocktails that will take the form of a Karaoke-inspired game, such as kara-jaying.
The bar soap bar, which will be open from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., will serve food.
The chain of bars will include more than 40 locations in major U.S. cities, including in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
A number of the venues will also offer an option to go to a private area to watch a karaokas performance, which usually includes music.
The option is available at bars in Los Angles, Los Alamos, San Diego, Miami, Washington, New York and Washington D. C.
Some bars in Hollywood have begun offering Karaoke performances on stage and in the bars themselves.
In March, Kari Dvorak, a singer and dancer, and her band performed on a stage in the lobby of the iconic Dolby Theatre in Los Feliz, California.
The performance attracted more than a million people.
In New York in early April, a Karaosh, a traditional Karaoke experience, was held at the Brooklyn Museum and on April 8, a bar called The Night Shift began offering Karaosh on stage.
It will be the first time Karaosh has been a public event at the museum.
In Los Angeles on April 18, a music venue called The Stitch and a karate club called the Kataoka opened at the Staples Center.
