Last night I was invited to a preview of the new Tuesday night party at Maru in Little Korea. I was told there would be drinks, appetizers, and of course, karaoke. What I wasn’t expecting was a design and crowd worthy of 27th street.
Maru is a cute lounge located on 32nd street right off of Fifth Avenue. It has two levels and the main level is about the size of Bijoux. I won’t say too much about the decor because I’ve been told it’s being redesigned this week.
There is standard table service but each table is surrounded by mesh window shades that can be pulled down for privacy. I don’t know how much privacy you’ll get, since at any moment there are tons of people belting out lyrics from the large screen in the front of the room, but you can try.
Maru had lots of models, quite a few bottles and delicious sushi. I’m looking forward to the opening next Tuesday night.
