We summoned our inner pop stars at Red MR
Each month Team Sassy gets together to enjoy a super fun, team-building activity, and this time we exercised our inner divas by belting out some great tunes at Red MR, Wan Chai’s famed karaoke spot.
We picked Red MR because it offered a selection of private rooms complete with comfy sofas, tables, five microphones (which we used thoroughly!), and an extensive list of English songs, a large LED screen television and a myriad of snacks and drinks to get the party started!

We had one of the VIP rooms, which can hold from eight to 30 people and came complete with its own private bathroom.
We munched on a variety of really tasty snacks to keep us going, including a Robatayaki platter of assorted grilled meats, a Robatayaki vegetable platter, French fries with black truffle dipping sauce, KFC deep-fried chicken and popcorn, all while sipping various cocktails and wine.
The karaoke machine was really easy to use, allowing us to search for some tried and true classics (Toto’s “Africa”, The Spice Girls “Wannabe”, and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” were musts!). Admittedly, some of us had a little stage fright at first and getting the first group up to sing meant waiting until the drinks kicked in. But, after a few cocktails – and when we all saw how much fun it was to sing some of our favourite songs – everyone got in on the action and we ended up singing until many of us were hoarse!
Karaoke is a fab way of letting loose, and Red MR was the perfect combination of comfort and festive. We found out we could even get gift cards for friends and family who might enjoy a night of tunes, cocktails and good food (perfect for any birthday or holiday present!). Anyone hoping to hold a birthday party, anniversary or just about any occasion, can have the rooms at Red MR set up to suit your fancy. Just tell the folks there what you’re looking to do and they will sort you out.
