Prefer to take your act public? Readers recommend Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar, which we recognized as one of Honolulu’s “Best Bars” in our December 2007 issue. Karaoke nights at the restaurant feature a real stage and spotlight, a joke-cracking emcee and 50 percent off the restaurant’s late-night sushi menu. Karaoke on Fridays and Saturday, from 10 p.m. to closing.
