“The only thing better than singing is more singing.”
“If your lifeguard duties were as good as your singing, a lot of people would be drowning.”
Karaoke is as authentically Japanese as sushi and sumo, and no night out in Japan is truly complete without a spot of singing. ROR Comedy’s resident comedians offer some inside knowledge as they introduce their favorite karaoke bars in the city.
Favourite karaoke number: Don’t Look Back in Anger (Oasis)
Recommended karaoke bar: Domus
Domus is a game of 2 halves; classy bar/restaurant downstairs, trashy karaoke upstairs. I’m more of an upstairs man myself. I love the Hawaii/California vibe (I’m a sucker for a good palm tree). The place has a brilliant atmosphere, and it's ideal for large groups to come and sing the night away.
