Great place to karaoke due to the fact that it is always very crowded with a great mix of individuals. If you want to perform scope out the large book of songs and put your name on the list the moment you get there.

“it's not in a safe area”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2005

Listen you guys: Brass Monkey is an awesome karaoke bar...however it's not in a safe area.

I was there with 3 friends one Saturday night and had a lot of fun. After the bar closed, we were smoking outside when we got attacked by what I assume is some sort of Korean street gang. Without any provocation at all from us, these guys came and picked a fight. At one point, there were 3 guys beating up one of my friends (we saw a gun on one of them) and another dude beating up my other friend. It all kind of stopped when the security guard across the street yelled "The cops are on their way".

I'm sure there are many people who go there all the time and nothing ever happens. Just be careful and remember that you’re not in a good area and random acts of violence do happen. Try not to stick around too much after the bar closes.
