You think you are a good singer do you? It is time to put your singing voice where your mouth is – if you see what we mean.
Never mind the ballads, to be the real karaoke champion you have to be get people on their feet and cheering good.
There is no point in getting lucky once either. Anybody can get a good crowd, but you have to do it across town to really impress us. Do you dare take the karaoke tour of Dubai?
It’s Mirchi: Start your karaoke route with something to eat at this Karama ‘curryoke’ favourite. The food’s good and the song book is heaving with Hindi and English classics so swallow your pride and get stuck in to the first stop on your evening of music.
Time Café: Next stop, Time Café. The best bit, is it’s in the same building as the fabulous It’s Mirchi. Reasonable prices, a fun crowd, and cheesy location, make this café of croon a worthy addition to the list. Four free drinks for females ensures that performers of the fairer sex are first on stage, while male counterparts quiver on the sidelines.
Double Decker: The perfect place to warble to your heart’s content, with the help of drinks promotions, a song book full of karaoke classics, and a balcony as a stage. By this point you should be well and truly warmed up and ready to take the crowd by storm so get stuck in.
Harry Ghattos: This Japanese hideaway is the only place to end any self-respecting evening of song. On a weekend, determined performers may have to take their place in the queue behind the constant stream of other enthusiastic wannabes, determined to share their ‘gift’ with the assembled throng. It’s worth the wait as the roaming microphone allows you to strut around the room and share your ‘skills’ with the masses.
