Ninja Karaoke - Bar Rescue Update

In this week's episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and crew are once again in Las Vegas to rescue Ninja Karaoke.  Ninja Karaoke is a karaoke bar owned by married couple Steve Corral and Mami Kanemitsu who bought the bar in 2017.  The bar was flourishing with popular events until the pandemic hit and then the bar was losing thousands per month. The struggles at the bar have caused Steve and Mami to put their goal to start a family on hold. 

During the Bar Rescue makeover, Jon Taffer decided to keep the name of Ninja Karaoke like all other bars during this season. Let's take a look at some information, reviews, and updates for Ninja Karaoke since Bar Rescue came and made all of the changes to the bar (All reviews are post-Bar Rescue):

Positive Reviews:
  • "This place is fun, cozy and friendly, with different (private) rooms. Really nice vibes!"
  • "Did a 2 hour karaoke session in the Anime Room. 4 people, $25 each person, with 2x premium drink tickets each. Had an excellent selection of songs and the staff was super helpful and attentive. Will be going back tonight for a session in their Samurai Room"
  • "Dope vibes, cool bartenders, great music! If you are an artist this is a well known spot for artist to showcase their craft."
  • "Nice little spot efficiency layed out ready for a party. Drinks prices are decent"
  • "This place is awesome. Get there by 6:30 for a great deal on 2 hours of a private room and 2 drinks per person. The hostess was super nice and answered all of our questions, and we had a lot! Really good song selection, all digital on an iPad. Highly recommended and I'll be coming back!"

    • The reviews are very positive both before and after the Bar Rescue makeover.


Jon Taffer decided to change the name of Ninja Karaoke and the reviews for the bar since the makeover have all been positive with people liking the atmosphere, karaoke, and private rooms.  With tourism in Las Vegas picking back up, Ninja Karaoke should have no issues getting people to return to their bar and succeeding. It seems that they still do not serve any food.
