When Miley Cyrus shows up to check out your venue before it’s even officially open, you can definitively declare it a hot spot. Such was the case last week when the h.wood Group‘s latest venture, Blind Dragon, awakened in West Hollywood.

Cyrus, boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Michael Strahan, and Courteney Cox were among the cool crew on hand to check out the upscale karaoke lounge concept from the team behind Bootsy Bellows, The NICE GUY and Henry’s.

So what can you expect to see at this swanky new singing den of delight?

As its name suggests, the venue is heavily influenced with Asian elements. As designed by John Sofio and Sormeh Azad of Built, Inc. and conceptualized by John Terzian and Wade Crescent, expect to see Japanese lanterns, bamboo, a life-like Bruce Lee statue and gongs in the former Chi Lin space.

Naturally, given that the h.wood Group caters to celebrities, Blind Dragon offers private options for the hush-hush VIP crowd. Not only are there private rooms a-plenty in the 2,800 square foot space, but there’s also a hidden entrance for those who want to avoid pesky paparazzi.

Those who make it past the velvet rope (but not into Miley’s private party room) can sing, dance, or grab an eighties-inspired cocktail at the bar. Sake bombs are available, any any of the specialty libations, like the Pink Panther—Don Julio blanco, pomegranate juice, Pama liquor, lychee and yuzu juice—can be made into a huge punchbowl drink for $300.

If you need to soak up the alcohol you needed for liquid singing courage, chefs Luigi Fineo and Michael Lefnes of RivaBella have curated a menu of dim sum, pizza and salads.

Blind Dragon will be open for business Wednesday through Sunday from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
