Teo Heng KTV

Recommended for: Family Bonding
Highlights: Cheap rates, no alcohol and no smoking policy

Arguably the most affordable karaoke in town, Teo Heng is surprisingly fuss-free for the price you’re paying. From as low as S$18 nett for a three-hour session (hourly rates are charged at room size, not number of people), you get a simple, small but brightly-themed room with decent equipment for singing. Food and drinks are not included in the price, but you’re not obliged to purchase from the outlet either. Customers are welcome to bring food from outside, as long as you remember to clean up after yourself. The karaoke’s strict no alcohol and no smoking policy also makes it a comfortable and safe environment, perfect for a group that simply loves to sing and does not care for other distractions. Teo Heng would also be an ideal choice as a family hangout location, but remember to phone in to book in advance, as the karaoke is often busy.

This KTV tops the list if you’re looking for a place to hangout for your loudest and craziest friends and you don’t mind spending a bit more money.

Party World KTV

Recommended for: Stressed workers
Highlights: Spacious Rooms, Massage Chairs and Music Instruments

One of the largest KTV chain in Singapore, Party World has chains spread across the island which makes it a convenient karaoke lounge of choice. Its interior décor is filled with neon lights that at first impression, reminds one of old-school pubs and bars. However, Party World’s spacious rooms and wide selection of songs in some 10 different languages like Korean, Thai and Cantonese makes up for its less classy furnishings. With a large database of songs to choose from, the karaoke would be good to visit with friends who have diverse music tastes. Most rooms also come equipped with massage chairs whilst larger rooms have pool tables – a way to re-energize should you get bored.

Manekineko Karaoke Singapore

Recommended for: Cat lovers, Shutterbugs, kidults
Highlights: Cute decorations, unlimited popcorn and drinks

Albeit a new player locally (its first Singapore branch opened in August this year at *SCAPE), Manekineko is a familiar name in home country Japan where it has more than 300 branches. Singapore is only its second overseas venture after Korea, and it seems that the brand is enjoying a growing fan base here, with a second outlet launched in November at Safra Jurong.

Manekineko’s KTV rooms are different colour-themed rooms, decorated with bright lights and adorned with cute illustrations of their cat mascot to give the karaoke a more youthful and vibrant atmosphere as compared to its dimly lit counterparts. The rooms also make for great Instagram-worthy photo sessions with quirky props provided for, offering a distraction for friends who may not like to sing that much. And when you need a break from singing, there’s always the unlimited supply of free popcorn and soft drinks to depend on at Manekineko.

Cash Studios’ song machines are accessible via an app which customers are expected to download, so you definitely need friends who are IT-savvy if you’re planning on visiting.
