Nothing really beats the feeling of belting out some of your favourite songs. But instead of doing it in the shower (you sexy thing, you), why not grab some friends for a night of karaoke? Here are a few places that promise a fun time (and some liquid courage).
With 25 different rooms with all sorts of music (different language options), these guys have nailed karaoke parties. Sizes vary from rooms for one to three singers to a whopping 40-person club.
3B River Valley Road, #02-03/04 The Foundry, 179021 (block B Clarke Quay)
This mightn’t be the fanciest spot in town, but it has all the basics of karaoke and is the place to go if you’re a fan of Japanese music.
#B3 Ming Arcade, 21 Cuscaden Road (also at a number of other locations)
If you haven’t already walked past one of these outlets, this is among the better-known karaoke chains in Singapore. It’s perfect for a casual night, and with nine locations around the island, it’ll make meeting up easier for bigger groups.
Marina Square, 6 Raffles Boulevard, #03-208/209 (also at a number of other locations)
Party World is similar to Manekineko in many ways and is one of their bigger competitors. There’s not too much of a difference between them, though you’ll probably find a wider selection of Chinese songs here.
#03-03 Liang Court SC, 117 River Valley Road (also at a number of other locations)
True to its name, this karaoke bar charges only $10 for a session. It’s great if you’re on a budget and looking for the bare essentials.
Level 3, 35A Smith Street (also at a number of other locations)
What sets this place apart is the recording studio option it has on the second floor. Immortalise your voice by making an album to remember the night by, at $30 per song or $50 per hour.
#01-01 Bugis Point, 530 North Bridge Road
