Just the thing to ring in a birthday or round out a rowdy brunch, here are our picks for the best karaoke bars in the city — for when you feel like letting your inner diva out.
We’re going to be honest; we’re pretty big fans of karaoke. You can often find us singing along to tunes in the office so it’s not a surprise that after a few drinks, karaoke is where you’ll find us. And with a whole host of options in the city, we think it’s the perfect thing to end a rowdy brunch, ring in a birthday or head to when all other bars close. Whether you’re power-ballad mad, can’t get enough of 90s boy bands or are a Disney fan through and through — here are the best karaoke spots in Hong Kong, for when you feel like letting your inner diva out…
One of the most popular karaoke spots in Hong Kong (a local icon, we must say), you’re more than likely to have wound up in Red MR at least once. Prices for standard rooms vary depending on which location you’re in. If you’re planning a big party and have a large group, check out Red MR’s party rooms, fitting between 8 to 20 people.
Another of the 852’s most-loved karaoke bars. Neway has various branches across Hong Kong including Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Bay, Tsuen Wan and Causeway Bay. So you’ll always be able to find one when the urge to sing kicks in! Similar to Red MR, prices vary depending on location but prime-time spots in Wan Chai will cost you $189 and up on weekends.
Cafe by day and a bar by night, Cosmos@RedMr is a polished karaoke bar where you can expect plush chairs, separate dance floors, good food and free-flow drinks. Team Sassy did one of our socials here and belted out to Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Alicia Keys and more — you know the drill!
Bond with strangers over your choice of karaoke songs! Junels Restobar is a Filipino eatery in Sai Ying Pun with an open karaoke bar for you to sing to your heart’s content and keep the good food coming. Alternatively, you can book the entire venue for private parties.
Did you know that many junk boats also come fully equipped with karaoke systems? Meaning we can not only enjoy one of our favourite summertime activities but we can sing our little hearts out whilst at sea? Forget the banana boats, after a few drinks, we’re all about the karaoke!

Private Party Rooms Across Hong Kong
Similar to junk boats, private party rooms more often than not come with a karaoke machine amongst other facilities like Nintendo Switch, ball pits, billiards table and more. The trick here may be to find ones with a good range of language songs and a machine that operates in English so contact the venues beforehand.
