As great as they are, I wanted to see what alternative karaoke venues are out there to help you further enjoy bawling your head off to Whitney, Mariah and the like! Here’s what I found:
China City Restaurant – Based in China Town this restaurant offers 4 different private rooms for karaoke for 8-40 people.
Shanghai Dalston – Located in uber trendy Dalston, this Dim Sum restaurant offers karaoke for groups of 10-50 people based on ordering a set menu. They start from £17.80 and a £5 deposit is required, per person, when booking. Can’t argue with that.
Other info: Shanghai Dalston has a sister restaurant in Belsize Park offering similar deals.
Onboard Karaoke – Earls Court offer the cheapest day rates for karaoke I have found. The rooms can accommodate 4 – 12 people. In addition to the cheap rates they seem to be keen on doing special offers so check the website and get Onboard!
There are many other restaurants and venues offering private karaoke in London including; Bloomsbury Lanes and All Star Lanes (Brick Lane venue) where you can combine karaoke with bowling, Queens where bowling and ice skating are also available, and a multitude of restaurants like Sushi Hiroba, Ribon, and Imperial China.
In short, just because you’re not in Japan anymore (sob), it doesn’t mean you have to go without your monthly, weekly, or even daily bout of karaoke!
