Why Karaoke in London is the Best Date Idea

1. It’s fun, right?

The answer to the question of ‘is karaoke fun?’ depends on the person you’re asking. But anyone caves under the pressure eventually. You simply cannot resist taking to the mic after a few dutch courage shots.

2. You can tell a lot by how someone sings

You can never say you truly know someone until you’ve heard them sing in a karaoke… even if you’ve been together for years. Some people flourish in a karaoke booth, whereas others crack. There’s nothing like an hour of karaoke to loosen up, have a laugh, and most importantly, find out whether those musical hips lie or not.

3. Everyone loves a duet!

A duet is calling both your names after each attempting a solo number. Whether you find your inner Danny and Sandy, Sonny and Cher, or Kylie and Robbie, there’s a certain romantic power in dueting together for the first time. Don’t be shy!

Our Criteria

We want to find the best karaoke event or venue for your date night. That’s why we rank each venue or event based on the criteria that matters – the vibes, the food & drink quality, its value for money, and how unique the experience is. The criteria we have used for this post is as follows:

Vibes

The atmosphere of the venue. Is it good-time party vibes? How welcoming is it for newbies? 

Food & Drink

The quality of the food and drink options available. How big is the cocktail menu? Is the food the star of the show?

Value for Money

The price in comparison to what you get. Is it worth the money? Is it too expensive?

Uniqueness

The uniqueness of the experience. Do other venues offer the same thing? Is it a once-in-a-lifetime night out?
