Time Out says

Show off your musical chops in an underground sing-a-long

Even for a subterranean Sydney karaoke joint, K Square is rabbit warren-y. You burrow down off George Street through dark tiled walls all sprayed with graffiti 
to your room, which, if you’re a big group, will be a blissfully air-conditioned space that fits 40. We love the playing card-style kings and jacks on the wallpaper almost as much as we love our private bathroom (and it’s clean!). Order a snack – the menu is mostly Thai noodles and fried favourites – or a three-litre tower of Asahi.

The system:
Plus one: most songs feature the original music videos (no longing gazes across Manila Bay here). Plus two: there’s a book as well as a searchable digital system. Mild minus: they play the original vocal track with each song – good if you’re a blender, bad if you were planning your big all-ears-on-me Dreamgirls moment for later in the night.

The songs:
A big list, and current – so you can really show off your music eclecticism.

If you’re keen to pop in for a lunch hour training session with a few pals, sing your heart out midweek for $7 per person, or book a room for up to five people for $58. Then show off your moves on the weekend to the full contingent of 25-40 peeps ($198 per hour).
