The best karaoke bars in London

Lucky Voice Soho

Nightlife Karaoke Soho

For those who enjoy crooning into a hairbrush, but are too shy to take to the stage, Lucky Voice might be the solution. Nine private ‘pods’ allow groups of four to 12 people to belt out a classic without any fear of embarrassment. Pizza and nibbles are basic, but the drinks menu is more extravagant; choose a snifter off the list to chase away any lingering inhibitions. With almost a million songs on the 
play-list, there will certainly be a tune you know – so no excuses.


Lucky Voice Islington

Nightlife Karaoke Islington

This is the Islington branch of the original Lucky Voice in Soho. Nine private ‘pods’ allow groups of four to 12 people to belt out a classic without any fear of embarrassment. Pizza and nibbles are basic, but the drinks menu is extensive: cocktails dominate, and there are wines and spirits by both the glass and the bottle to loosen the vocal cords and inhibitions.

The Phoenix, Cavendish Square

The Phoenix

Nightlife Marylebone

This popular central London boozer is a good place to drink and an even better place to party. The venue hosts numerous club nights and nightlife events that are focused firmly on full-fat fun. Highlights of the packed party calendar include 'massaoke' (mass-karaoke) singalong Friday I'm In Love, miserablist pop and indie night Feeling Gloomy (actually very fun and not really miserable, by the way) and Rockaoke, a rock and power ballad-driven singalong night.
