The owner of a Korean restaurant on 28th Street is opening a food and karaoke joint in downtown Grand Rapids.

Rob Yoon, owner of Emonae Korean BBQ in Cascade Township, at 6246 28th St. SE, is planning to open K-Rok Korean Barbecue & Karaoke in downtown Grand Rapids, according to a post on Monday by Downtown Grand Rapids Inc.

A specific opening date has not been announced, but DGRI said it will be before the year’s end.

It will be located at 169 Louis Campau Promenade NW, Suite 1, according to a comment from Emonae on the DGRI post. A sign in the building’s window indicates similar information.

The location is owned by Amway Hotel Corp., according to city property records. The building is in the same courtyard as the LOVE sculpture, Z’s Bar and Restaurant and Panera Bread.

Emonae said on the DGRI post that in addition to serving Korean barbecue — in which guests are served an array of sides and their choice of raw meat to be cooked at the table — the restaurant will offer noraebang, which lets patrons sing karaoke in their own private booths/rooms.

Emonae was closed for the day when the Business Journal reached out to request comment.

K-Rok has not yet launched social pages or a website.
