We all know about the Universal Studios, Merlion Park, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Jurong Bird Park and the first ever Night Safari, but little do we know that Singapore has places where you can let yourself lose and sing along all night long! Here is a quick glance at the top Karaoke clubs or KTVs in Singapore.
Actors, the Jam Bar
Bathroom singers or not, you must hop on that stage and get the rockstar feel. Every weekdays, the club is throbbing with the music from 50s to 80s. With a college band or your gang of girls, you will feel like you are a famous pop star when all the crowd is hooting for you. From classic rock to pop, every genre has a day. On Thursdays, be sure to wear the famous Lennon glasses because it is ‘The Beatles’ night! Budding musicians often come here to jam and flaunt their skills. You will identify John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury and the like in the crowd.
