Yakitori Boy, Philadelphia’s own izakaya lounge and karaoke bar has been a staple in Chinatown for years. The popular Japanese “pub” offers a vast selection of tapas style dishes, sushi and more than 30 selections of yakitori skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables. But on top of all of the delicious food and drinks, this hotspot has so much more to offer.
Yakitori Boy has so much to offer, including new private karaoke lounges
Yakitori Boy has everything to tickle anyone’s fancy. The ultra-chic yet warm atmosphere makes guests feel comfortable yet refined as soon as they walk in. The food menu boasts plenty of tasty options from sushi to grilled pork belly skewers to tempura ice cream, and every meal is carefully constructed to look as appetizing as it tastes. The drink selection is just as exciting; Yakitori Boy offers a wide variety of beers, liquors, wines, sake and specialty cocktails on top of other unique delicacies such as Japanese beers, Japanese whiskey, and exclusive bottles of sake.
The drinks and the food are just the start; upstairs you can find the ultra-impressive and dangerously amusing karaoke lounge. The whole room lights up as soon as you walk in, it’s spacious, colorful and inviting. You don’t have to be nervous about performing in front of a whole room of people either, Yakitori Boy also offers eight color-themed private karaoke lounges (for 6-20 people) located next to the main lounge, you and a group of close friends can jam out in complete privacy.
