“Where the regulars rule, so does the Pink Chantelle ($6). The cocktail, made with Stoli Razberi, Absolut Mandrin, pineapple, OJ and grenadine, is named after a customer who prefers her drinks on the frou-frou side. ‘When she wears green, we substitute Midori.’ Situated under a Travelodge, Suki’s resembles a forgotten Vegas lounge with its smoky haze, cherry-glittered walls and lipstick-red bar. But thankfully, Mr. Newton won’t be taking the room’s center stage anytime soon. Instead, after-work crews re-create goofy ’80s hits, and edgier American Idol hopefuls belt out power ballads at the bar’s never ending karaoke showdown.”
