Examiner.com was on the scene at the soft opening of a chic new high-end karaoke bar called Jelsomino owned by Ginza Project. Guests, which included press, New York City influencers like Z100 radio personality Skeery Jones, Eddie The Gun lead singer Camilla Romestrand, Singer/Songwriter Negin and Shahs of Sunset Starlet Mercedes "MJ" Javid, sang into the wee hours of Friday morning. Co-owner and Ginza Project partner Tatiana Brunetti, was also in attendance. The space, which is right night door to the Dream Hotel Midtown is in a bunker right down the steps. Once you enter, you see tables with bottle service and a DJ at the other end of the room. In the center, there are two island-like stages. The platforms light up. Then down a hallway there is a bar and another bar in the back. There is also a private karaoke room, in case you don't like singing in public! 
We loved the space. The staff is super-attentive and the karaoke is state of the art (you request songs via an iPad). Jelsomino's staff is full of energy and they are constantly breaking out into song and dance! They also sing back-up for you. There were saxophonists and accordian players who performed during intermissions.  It was an exciting experience. As a karaoke enthusiast, I checked out the sound system for myself breaking out into Katy Perry's 'Hot N Cold.' Anyone who sings at Jelsomino will feel like a star! Even if you don't like to sing you can watch your friends sing or just hang out! The concept for the bar is russian inspired and Ginza Project also owns a Jelsomino in St. Petersburg. There is nothing like Jelsomino in NYC and it truly is unique experience.
