Big Daddys FOR THE WIN!.
A hidden treasure in the midst of the pretension that is Winter Park. The owner is usually hanging out at the bar and knows how to really get to know and respects his customers. Weekly Kareoke by DJ Di, who steals the show every night with her eccentric humor and soulful back up vocals to fellow kereokers. The prices are affordable and it is a smoking bar, so for you fellow smokers, this is the place to downwind and chill after a long day at work. The staff is great and easy to have a conversation! Big Daddys rocks.
Rude, unprofessional KJ w/an attitude chases customers away..
This is by far the worst Karaoke place I have ever been to. The KJ said she was in a 'bad mood' when she finally got things started at 9:45. I guess we should have taken that as a bad sign but we submitted our song anyway. We were the first to submit our song, but four songs later when I still hadn't sung we decoded to just leave. I don't think it was a coincidence that all the singers were regulars with whom she was on a first name basis with.
I usually am very generous with the tips. My tab is equally big. The 11/12 Lounge can confirm that. But Big Daddy's will never know.
Gay or Straight, no problem for me!.
I'm not sure why these homophobes had a bad time at Big Daddy's, I had a great one. I don't mind drinking with people, gay or straight. The pool tables are pretty good for a roadhouse bar and the drink prices are reasonable. Free pool from 3-7 Monday thru Friday is awesome!
the big witch karaoke host who works there ruins the karaoke.
this place can be good--if you go the times the large b*tch with the black hair is NOT the karaoke host....she is just awful. She has favoritism and favors some people and let's them sing numerous times, while ignoring everyone else and making them wait hours to sing. You can't talk to her or do anything about it. She is one bitter mean person and so rude to people. I've been there several times...only to be told my turn would be in two hours....on a not so crowded night. The mean lady also bullied me once and knocked my water over...because she was jealous I was a good singer. The blonde karaoke host is very nice though and the total opposite--if you go the day she's hosting you are guaranteed to have fun. In this case, the many times I've wanted to take family/friends wasn't able to because of the mean rude big mean host. I wish they would just get her out of there...she ruins everything and causes people to not even want to be there..
We had a pub crawl for my husband last night and there was a large black haired woman that was hosting the Karaoke who was extremely rude to our group the minute we walked in. She made fun of us and told the audience that we made her feel like she was in a zoo because we were staring at her. She kept poking fun at us and told us that we needed to spread out because our group made her uncomfortable. So sad that Big Daddy's had such low class working for them because it really left a bad impression on all of us.
