The Portland Business Journal has the story; Scott Simon the owner of the Voicebox karaoke lounge on NW 21st & Hoyt is opening up a second location—this time in the far more convenient (for me anyway) southeast:
Scott Simon opened the original Voicebox in Northwest Portland in 2008. He announced this week he has leased a site in Southeast Portland and will open a second location this fall at a 4,000-square-foot space...
If you've never been, Voicebox features the traditional Japanese style of private karaoke rooms, where you and a small group of friends can load up a number of songs and sing yer guts out. It's a vast improvement for narcissists like me who hate waiting an entire night to sing one song at your ordinary karaoke bar. I'M SORRY BUT THAT'S THE WAY I FEEL. The new Voicebox will be at 726 SE 6th—which according to my Google map is just north of SE Morrison on 6th, in the old Spikes Auto Upholstery shop. That's a great area that needs some sprucing, and more entertainment choices... so I'm looking forward to it!
