Free 노래방 Karaoke @ Epicurean ™ (ALL AGES WELCOME)

Bring ID if you plan to drink.  Located on the Red Line at Van Ness/UDC.  Plenty of free street parking on Connecticut Ave.

Join us the first Saturday of every month for FREE Karaoke at Epicurean & Co. in Washington DC.  This is a great event for those of us who live in DC and Maryland or who don't have a car and can't make it to one of the many meetups in Annandale.  Songs are available in Korean, English, and other languages.  And if you don't enjoy singing, it's fun to just enjoy some of the great talent in our group and socialize with other members.  Bring a friend (or twenty!) and come enjoy a favored Korean pastime right here in the Nation's Capital!

Epicurean isn't exactly a 노래방, it's a restaurant and bar with a Korean karaoke machine.  It is a "neighborhood" type establishment that doesn't draw much of a crowd on Saturday nights, so we usually have the place to ourselves.  Epicurean lets us use their facilities and karaoke machine free of charge in return for our patronage.  There is a full bar (with soju!) and a buffet that is half price starting at 8:30.  

Our meetup group, Korean Waves ™, has worked with the management of Epicurean to set up this event for our members.  It is not a co-hosted event.  

Epicurean is located at the Van Ness-UDC Metro station (this is NOT the Georgetown location).  Exit on the UDC (west) side of Connecticut Ave and it is located about 100 feet ahead on the left (the last awning by the American flag in the picture above).  There is plenty of free street parking on Saturday nights.

    WEATHER UPDATE: The forecast is calling for rain tonight and snow in some parts of the region. Current reports indicate that it will stay above freezing in the immediate DC area with rain ending after midnight. The meetup will continue as planned, however, should the temperature drop or conditions become severe, we may end early or cancel the event. If the schedule changes or the event is cancelled, I will post an update here and send out an email to all those that RSVPed. Please keep an eye on the current conditions and forecast and always use your best judgment when deciding whether or not to attend. If you cannot make it, please update your RSVP as soon as you safely can do so. This will help me and the management at Epicurean plan accordingly. Thanks! Jason

      Hope you don't have to cancel it. I'm bringing my cousin too and she is all excited. I drive 4WD and am coming from VA route 7 if anyone needs ride and I can also give ride on my way back.

    Just a reminder that trains are running every 20 minutes on the Red, Blue, and Orange lines this weekend. I suggest monitoring train times online to avoid waiting in the cold! There is also free street parking at the location.

    Checkout these Android apps. They both work with most of the Korean karaoke machines (although the machines may not be up to date). Also, the ziller app has more English, but also has some features you have to pay for: Check out "퍼펙트싱어 VS with 질러쏭 (Karaoke)"

    Check out "TJ노래방책플러스"
