By Mike Hazlip—
A new karaoke bar and party room rental business is bringing some nightlife to Citrus Heights.

Corner Spot owner Mindy Le said she opened the entertainment business about eight months ago in Citrus Heights because of what she saw as a lack of nightlife options in the area.

“There’s really nothing much like entertainment venues in Citrus Heights, so we decided it would be the perfect location,” Le said.

The business is located at 6432 Tupelo Drive and offers open mic karaoke every Sunday night at 7 p.m., with hours of operation as late as 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

In addition to a small bar lounge that is open to the public, there are five themed private party rooms that are available to rent at an hourly rate. The business also offers food items such as tacos, nachos, chicken wings, and fries, according to their website.

No age limit is in place for room rentals, but the business will not serve alcohol to parties where minors are present. Party guests are allowed to bring their own cakes and cupcakes, according to information posted to their website.

Despite a location close to Stones Gambling Hall, Le said business at Corner Spot has been moderate with most customers coming from surrounding areas like Folsom, Roseville, Fair Oaks and Orangevale. Some customers come from as far as Vacaville, she said.

The business has so far earned 10 reviews on Yelp, with 5-out-of-5-star ratings on all reviews. Customers note comfortable rooms, good food and welcoming service.

Le, who also owns Sweet Cones ice cream shop in Folsom and Natomas Auto Care, said she decided to become an entrepreneur after she lost her corporate job during the COVID pandemic.

She says running a business is not easy, but feels it’s worth the effort.

“It’s a struggle, really, right in the beginning during COVID,” Le said. “[W]e’re still struggling, but it’s paying off.”
