Looking for fun BYOB places anywhere in the five boroughs. The kind of places where "cuisine locals" get a bit rowdy (cuisine locals = Koreans at a Korean restaurant, Georgians at a Georgian restaurant). Something along the lines of Cupola Samarkanda II or Cafe Sim-Sim would be perfect. I remember a dinner at A Fan Ti featuring old Chinese men drinking copious amounts of Coors Light with their shirts off, that's the kind of thing we're looking for. Live music at the restaurant (like at Cupola Samarakanda II or Sim-Sim) is a huge plus, but not a requirement. If there's no live entertainment at the restaurant, a fun bar/karaoke bar nearby would great.
Are there any really fun BYOB Korean restaurants (ideally in Murray Hill, Queens), or do all the fun ones (e.g. Han Shin Pocha) serve drinks?
Places we're considering include Tacis Beyti, Caucasus Garden, Baku Palace, Old Baku, and Cafe Afsona. Would love some Korean, Chinese, West African, Latin and Filipino recommendations as well.
Thanks in advance,
