Get ready to sing your heart out, Queen City. Tokyo Kitty, a Japanese-style karaoke bar, will open at 575 Race St., inside Downtown's 84.51 Building, at 5 p.m. Friday. The karaoke bar, which will be open 5 p.m.-2 a.m. daily, features a dance floor with an elevated DJ booth, a well-stocked craft cocktail bar, seven private karaoke rooms available to rent and a robotic drink delivery system concealed above the bar's ceiling. The concept is the brainchild of Gorilla Cinema owner Jacob Trevino, who also owns the Quentin Tarantino-inspired speakeasy Video Archive in Walnut Hills and the Overlook Lodge, an homage to "The Shining," in Pleasant Ridge. Trevino said he drew inspiration for Tokyo Kitty from "Lost in Translation" and his own visits to karaoke bars while at college in Houston.
