Dubaians can be split into two camps: those who love karaoke and those who hate it, but secretly wish they were up on stage crooning 'Suspicious Minds'. If you have accepted your inner diva then Harry Ghatto's is the best place in Dubai to belt out a few classics. Nestled in the back room of a sushi restaurant, the can't-swing-a-cat cosiness and twin microphone set-up inspires a brothers-in-song ambience. Dutch courage comes courtesy of extremely expensive imported Japanese beers and sake but don't worry if you're still a little nervous: the staff are always on hand to show you how it's done.
Open daily 8pm-3am. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road, (04 319 8088).
