Screech out dancefloor classics with celebs at this karaoke institution

It’s Sydney’s oldest collection of rooms to sing in and still one of its best, especially after a reno in recent years (that old Karaoke World smell is gone). The 18 rooms are now all dark walls, chunky glass tables (watch your shins) and rave-y lasers. Food is still your basic chips, spring rolls and wings, though.

The system:
The remote is easy to use if you’ve laid off the sake but the mics can play up. Thankfully, the front desk is swift to the rescue with a replacement.

The songs:
The venue takes pride in promoting their mammoth selection of more than 120,000 songs in English, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Korean. The list skews toward Top 40.

This is where the celebs come to let their hair down (one Time Out-er recalls singing ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ here at 3am with a WWE wrestler). Rates start at $66 for a room that’ll fit five, to private suites with their own loo for $186, so your group of 35 stars won’t waste whizzing time.


Address: 185 Elizabeth St
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 3pm-4am; Sun 3pm-1am
