Breaking News: Karaoke Tonight At ADH!

Atlantic Dance Hall is going Karaoke on Thursdays beginning tonight!  In a page taken right out of CityWalk's playbook, ADH is going after the increasingly popular Karaoke crowd with a live band performing the tunes for singers just like at Rising Star.  The stage will be used for performances and tonight is sort of a dress rehearsal so come out if you can make it.  Like Rising Star, we're told that there will be a cover charge.  Atlantic Dance Hall is located at Disney's Boardwalk Resort.

at least it's not a perpetual wedding every night anymore. Good, they went for a theme night, now they can just theme themselves to EDM and 8TRAX

Thommy, I just don't know why they're doing this. It's not like they actually want people to go there. So there has to be a motive. My guess is they're trying to offer entertainment for hotel guests of EPCOT area resorts. Once Spring Break and Easter pass, this will be gone. But that's just my guess.

DJ TonyZ reports that this begins next Thursday, not tonight. I was told that they're having a dress rehearsal tonight though. TonyZ also reports there will be a cover charge.

Isn't Kimono's a short walk away?

Any rumor that this will be kid-friendly? A way to squeeze a little more money out of ADH before shuttering it? By starting next Thursday, pretty much completely miss college Spring Break (my guess is the biggest potential market outside CMs), and as Bill points out, there's an established karaoke bar-albeit without a live band--over in the Swan.

Theory #2: test run for something in Disney Springs?

KingBob said...

Isn't the place over in The Swan just a sushi bar with a soapbox in the corner for singing?

Good theory about this being a test run for a future Karaoke place in Disney Springs. On the other hand, everything at ADH is Disney while I would expect anything at DS to be 3rd party. So why bother?

Eh, around 9 Kimonos pretty much goes into full karaoke bar mode, stays open until 1 or 2. It's a trained hostess, too, who can change pitch and the like, not just some dude with a machine from Wal-Mart. Like ADH, crowd depends on whether there is a convention in the hotel.

Was a rumor floated on Magic a few months ago of a "Trader Sams like" bar coming to the Springs, owned by Disney. Never followed up tho, may have been old info, or maybe TDO saw the writing on the wall and realized not enough tenants are signing up. I honestly don't know what to think.
