Sid Gold's Request Room
At Sid Gold’s Request Room, you can listen to Sinatra live. Except it won’t actually be Sinatra—it’ll be some guy from Long Island who comes here every Saturday and does a pretty decent impression. That’s just one of the characters you might run into at this Chelsea bar with live piano karaoke six nights a week. Sid Gold’s feels like it was transported straight from 1970s Vegas, and it’s a magical place where all of your dreams will come true (as long as all of your dreams involve singing Billy Joel in front of strangers). There’s a bar up front, but you want to sit in the small lounge in the back where all the magic happens. Keep in mind that there’s a two-drink minimum, and don’t forget to tip your pianist.
