Of Kremlin and Karaoke

The Cold War may have ended decades ago, but Jelsomino is just warming up. This Russian karaoke club hits Midtown in a blaze of post-Soviet glory. Waiting inside the red leather door is a glowing circular stage, a team of waitresses ferrying glow-in-the-dark cocktail trays, a catalog of 60,000 songs (many of them in Russian, searchable via tableside iPads) and a pack of at-your-disposal professional backup singers to help every patron sound like a superstar. But be sure to wear pants with deep pockets: Belvedere bottle service is priced at $350 and VIP tables come at a minimum of $3,000 for the evening.
