Almost a year later, the old Tammany Hall is ready for rebirth. Before you know it, the drunken hordes on Orchard Street will resume screaming about being a “small town girl living in a lonely world” who’s livin’ on a prayer … or some shit. Booting your sanity until morning.

In other words, the second outpost of Karaoke Boho is finally making its comeback in Hell Square. We’re told by corporate that the bar should reopen at its new 152 Orchard Street headquarters near the end of the week.

Below is a sneak peek inside the front door. You can see the triangular wall-lighting scheme.

Karaoke Boho is in this better position thanks to controversial landlord Ben Shaoul. This business was one of ten that became refugees after the $75 million purchase of the corner parcel at Orchard and East Houston.

The larger iteration of Karaoke Boho (300 patrons) will reportedly be more “food focused” with service of Mexican-American food to the slew of private rooms. There are a total of 21 karaoke stalls split between the basement, ground, and mezzanine levels. Beer-wine license only. Concerned that increased menu options would be the proverbial Trojan Horse for another full-on club, CB3 held firm back in February, and seemed hesitant to approve another OP here.
