A new karaoke club with 40 different rooms, each with its own unique decor, opens at the Grand Canal Shoppes. The 17,000-square-foot Kamu Ultra Karaoke offers private lounges for groups of six to 40 people who want to sing their hearts out to the thousands of songs in the venue’s catalog.
First to the safety measures put in place. Kamu originally planned to open in March, just as Gov. Steve Sisolak closed all nonessential businesses including casinos, restaurants, and bars to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Customers first walk through a thermographic disinfection door that screens for temperature and uses a full body disinfectant with ultrasonic vapor and UVC sterilizing lights. Each singer receives a disposable microphone cover to use. And each room undergoes a sanitation process after every use.
The decor is out of this world, with each lounge decked out in its own design. One suite for eight features a waterfall motif while another features roses on the walls. Other themes include neon, the Milky Way, the circus, zebras, an inferno, and a rainbow.
Executive chef Marty Lopez — a veteran in Vegas restaurants such as the former Herringbone at Aria, 35 Steaks + Martinis at the Hard Rock Hotel, the former Alizé at the Palms, Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian, and Bacchanal Buffet and Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace — takes over the kitchen. The menu features Korean fried chicken, kalbi tacos, bacon-wrapped scallops, and a 40-ounce wagyu tomahawk steak. The venue also offers a bar and bottle service.
