Most professional singers overcome stage fright by stuffing their ears with the heads of Batman & Robin figurines. Devise your own performance tradition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of classic pub fare and drinks at Mr. Biggs Bar & Grill, a two-night-a-week karaoke hub in Hell's Kitchen. This Groupon also gets you one complimentary frozen margarita.
Part sports tavern with plenty of flat screen TVs, part karaoke bar, part place that offers free WiFi until 8 p.m. and is open until 4 a.m., Mr. Biggs has something for everybody, though its proximity to Broadway makes it attract pro vocalists. Classic pub fare populates the menu, with starters that include chicken fingers with creamy honey-mustard sauce ($5.95) and nachos piled with sour cream, black beans, cheese, and jalapeños, and then piled more with guacamole, pico de gallo, and chili sauce ($9.95). Mr. Biggs’s infamous buffalo wings are served mild, medium, or hot in a collection of 10 ($7.95), 20 ($13.95), 50 ($33), or 100 ($63). The sizzling shrimp scampi is served with your choice of penne or linguini topped with garlic and semi-dried tomato ($12.95), and the juicy Biggs burger pairs 8 oz. of prime ground beef with salad and potato wedges ($9.95).
Mr. Biggs caters to open-air and closed-air diners with an outdoor eating area and a cozy inner sanctuary that has a full bar and tables surrounded by banquette couches. You can increase your Groupon's effectiveness during two happy hours and with daily specials (such as half-price nachos with $10 pitchers of Coors Lite on Wednesdays), or belt out songs about love, death, and trying to domesticate squirrels every Friday and Saturday at karaoke.
Mr. Biggs Bar & Grill was featured the New York Times, New York magazine, Time Out New York, and Midtown Lunch. Yelpers give it an average of three stars, and Citysearchers give it a four-star average.
- Drinking at Mr. Biggs means never missing the play-by-play. Out in the main room, the options include 37 screens of varying sizes ensuring you'll catch every pass whether you're perched at the bar, sharing one of the two-tops clustered on the floor, or sitting at the banquette which runs along the outside wall. – Eric Hunter, New York
- Amateur night it was not. For a decade, Mr. Biggs Bar and Grill has been not just another karaoke bar where decided novices produce a succession of dreadful sounds. Because it is close to Broadway, it draws many professional singers – Kate Torgovnick, New York Times
