Though it be a small bar, 3 Miles House packs enough karaoke might for the sound to carry beyond its walls and onto the street, a likely annoyance to adjacent houses. And yet nobody seems bothered, maybe because so many of the neighbors are inside belting out their favorite standards. 3 Miles has everything required of a good karaoke spot—a decent book, cheap booze, and drunken crowd sing-a-longs—and the one thing most places don’t: short waits. If you’re there at the right time you’ll hear co-owner “Mr. Jack” Norris sing the Velvet Underground’s ‘Pale Blue Eyes’ like it’s the saddest country song ever, and that alone is worth a look.
