Stick to Queen Anne. There's a great karoake joint on W Mercer. Perfect for what your after.
I have been known to tear up some Paul Revere.
Great bar, great vibe, equal mix of all ages and party scenes, etc. Queen Anne's the place to check out, if you want it relaxed a bit. Very cool place; its Seattle for sure.
I lived 2 blocks down, and pulled some serious miracle honeys out of there. But, I can't recall the name. You'll know, trust me. Right across from Safeway, corner of 1st and W Mercer.
