If getting frisked at the door is the start of your evening, this is the place to be. Even after asking the doorman if he thought most people carried in their coat pockets, he told us he wasn't worried about that, just people bringing in their own liquor! After paying $10 for 2 rail drinks I can see why. With our watered down drinks and the drunken security guard hovering over us (guess they don't like new people) we were ready for the door. A quick "Thanks for leaving" from the bartender (who we hear has a rep for being as friendly) and we were up the street at a much nicer place. "One Nite Stand" says it all.
Best Karaoke - 2011
One Nite Stand
From the outside this south-city dive may not look like the typical karaoke joint. Standing alone at the corner of Ohio and Gravois avenues, the bar's hard brick exterior may make you question if you've made the right choice in coming here. But One Nite Stand is the perfect place to get your groove on, whether you're a neighbor, a newbie or just getting your feet wet. Known for its often raucous karaoke sessions, One Nite Stand has quickly become a mainstay for hipsters, Juggalos and hoodrats itching for the mic. No one is safe from the infectious fun. Featuring a massive song selection ranging from the top of the pops to the obscure, you may find yourself giving your best rendition of Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative" or Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle." Cheap drinks and good company make the night, allowing your vocal chords to ease up before you shout it out loud.
