When you've got a song in your heart, money is no object. That's the idea behind Palm Tree L.A., a glitzy Koreatown karaoke spot that caters to an above-the-bar clientele. The nightclub vibe quickly gives way to glowing studio-quality song rooms, some big enough for 30 crooners. At $20 an hour and up, Palm Tree isn't the cheapest norebang (karaoke in Korean) bar you'll find along Wilshire Boulevard, but it's also not the sketchiest. Instead, rely on good friends, great songs (available in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean or Indonesian), a few light bar snacks and the occasional call for bottle service to keep your spirits high, even if your wallet ends up a touch lighter than usual.
