One of the best things about Vegas is that there’s always something new to experience. Until now, KAMU Ultra Karaoke near Sushisamba and the Xpot. The newly opened entertainment experience allows you to channel your inner pop star.
When you enter KAMU, you’ll pass through a thermographic disinfecting door, which includes a disinfecting vapor that’s already in use in other parts of the country, as well as temperature screening and UV lights. You’ll get a disposable microphone cover and hand sanitizer.fa
The 17,000-square-foot venue features 40 socially distanced suites and private karaoke rooms, which can accommodate from six to 40 folks at a time. (They are sanitized after every group.) Each room has a different, exotic or fun theme, from the Circus Suite to the Milky Way Suite. After you are escorted to your room, whet that appetite with selections from KAMU executive chef Marty Lopez, who has been in the Vegas culinary scene for years. Offerings include a 40-ounce tomahawk steak, Korean karaoke restaurant and bar food favorites like fried chicken and kalbi tacos. Dessert? Try honey toast or a massive sundae. To accompany your dishes, you’ll find a range of cocktails and even bottle service.
If you’re shy or just tone-deaf, the small gathering suites may be just what you need to feel comfortable. And what will you choose to sing? With KAMU’s large library of hits to select from, you’re sure to find something appropriate (or possibly inappropriate; you’ll need to get feedback from your group to tell!). The venue also allows you to sing from your own music library, and even stream music from your phone.
Room prices start at $70 depending on the time, and although walk-in groups are allowed, a reservation will make sure you don’t need to wait. Time slots begin at 6 p.m. (children are allowed from 6 p.m.-8 p.m.), and are available all night through 8 a.m. –Nina King
