INSA is a Korean BBQ restaurant with 5 karaoke rooms. It is located in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It is being built by Ben Schneider, who is behind The Good Fork restaurant in Red Hook, Brooklyn with chef-wife, Sohui Kim. As a contractor and woodworker, Ben has been building us the the Korean restaurant of our dreams. However, given the circumstances of building a restaurant, even with thorough planning and financing, costs appear frequently and over time, we have been reaching out for funds.
We want to bring the DYNAMIC KOREAN SOCIAL EXPERIENCE to Brooklyn:
Imagine a beautifully lit space, tall ceilings, a room full of buzzing people surrounded by a collection of banchan on their table and the sound of sizzling meat on 18 BBQ tables. Now imagine ordering a craft cocktail, a bottle of wine or the ubiquitous shot of soju and an ice cold OB lager...
After a full-scale Korean culinary delight, what better way to digest than lounging at our "Asian-exotica" bar or rent one of our karaoke rooms and belting out your best rendition of that hit from that time when you had that hair?!
Now imagine that is real!
OUR PLAN is to raise $35,000 to be able to acquire the equipment to complete our karaoke experience for our themed five rooms.
Each room costs approximately $7,000 that consists of a main server, backup server, software with an updated +25,000 songlist, sound monitors, tv screen, lighting, routers, microphones, wireless keypad, songbook, the build out and finally, a "Stevie Nicks" fan: a fan for the desired effect.
OUR VISION is one of a diversified business under one roof where guests will be able to celebrate one another's company in a variety of ways. We aim to be the go-to destination for both Korean BBQ & Karaoke.
With your support, we will be able to provide our guests of all ages with the absolute Karaoke experience.
NO MORE long trips to K-town or Chinatown for karaoke!
