COVER TUNES: Karaoke just got cool. Paris promoter Rasmus Michau is preparing to launch what he hopes will be “the most beautiful karaoke bar in the world” in a former theater in the French capital. Le Renard, a 130-seat restaurant designed by architect Franklin Azzi, will open its doors in March following a one-year renovation costing 1 million euros, or $1.4 million at current exchange. The retro-style venue is a joint venture between Michau, co-founder of creative agency Hmm and Addy Bakhtiar, owner of Le Milliardaire and Régine’s. The concept was inspired by the Sunday-night karaoke sessions at Cipriani Downtown in New York, Michau revealed. “We want to turn it into a high-class karaoke joint where people dress up to come and sing,” he said.
