If you've a fondness for warbling along to 'Waterloo' or screeching out 'Summer Nights', Brum's new Karaoke Box at Regency Wharf, Broad Street is the destination for you.

Once considered massively uncool, even those who normally daren't carry a tune outside their shower have long since embraced the opportunity to sing their hearts out. That is, at least, once they're inside a soundproof booth and plied with enough liquid courage to loosen their inhibitions...

As you'd hope, Karaoke Box, which will launch its first venue outside London on Saturday November 21, can provide both. It has 11 luxurious rooms, decorated with three different themes, such as the futuristic 'Galaxy Room' with space themed lighting or, if you're going all out, there's also an exclusive 20-seat VIP room modelled on the London Underground.

In any of the rooms, revellers will be able to select from 15,000 songs, which can be pre-selected online to create a personalised playlist ahead of the evening.

Providing the Dutch courage is a fully fitted bar, with a number of finger food dining options and an extensive cocktail menu.

These bespoke themed drinks include 'Lost in Karaoke' (Yamazaki whisky cranberry juice, Angostura bitters and lime) or 'Just the Two of Us' (Mount gay rum with lime, brown sugar, passion fruit, Passoa, strawberry puree and ginger beer).

However, if you're grabbed by a spontaneous urge to sing, it's worth noting that you'll only get the chance to belt out your favourite tunes at Karaoke Box if you book a room (for five to 25 people) in advance.
