Sound Advice: Don’t Drop The Mic!

Drunk or sober, singer or not, we all love karaokes. And here’s your sure shot list of the best karaoke nights around Mumbai

Bathroom singers, trained artists, and music enthusiasts, we all have a common agenda – to sing! Sometimes out of tune, sometimes, not even to save our lives; but give us a mic, and we are up! For all those moments when you want to croon at top of your voice, meet fellow crooners at some of the most popular karaoke clubs around town, I feel ya. Although my personal favourite – Three Wise Men – in Santacruz has been shut for months for renovation, I have spent weeks and days in finding the closest replacement. And God! Have I been surprised with what I found.

Khar Social

Where: Khar
When: Monday nights

Social has been buzzing on all days of the week. Now, it’s difficult to even enter the venue on Mondays since they started karaoke nights. Beat your Monday Blues with Brian’s Karaoke Nights at Social. Also, added incentive: their karaoke coincides with their free-flowing Monday bar nights. Down your sorrows with your favourite Adele number and a classic martini!


Where: Juhu
When: Thursday nights

If you are feeling desi and filmi on a Thursday night, head to Copa, Juhu for their insanely busy Bollywood karaoke night. You might find yourself next to an elderly uncle crooning Rafi’s hits away to glory. Choose to either sit indoors or outdoors – both have separate loaded bars – and rekindle the singer within you!


Where: Mahim
When: Monday nights

Earlier this year, when the place was relatively new, we found ourselves and just three other groups, and the entire karaoke night to ourselves. Every Monday night, this hole-in-the-wall Mahim eatery (right opposite Paradise Cinema), hosts one of the best Bollywood karaokes in the city. We were overjoyed. However, eight months hence, in November, when we went back for a similar experience, we realized people had discovered the gem of a place it was, and we didn’t even manage to find a place. It only speaks volumes of the popularity of their Monday karaokes, and we would suggest you make reservations in prior. Also, in case you hit the right notes, you might just win complimentary shots! Good luck!

Zoo Bar

Where: Vile Parle
When: Monday nights

A stone’s throw away from the Vile Parle station, this year-old pub hosts an entertaining Bollywood and international karaoke night on Monday nights. Being close to the colleges – Mithibai, NM and UPG – you’ll always find a sea of young crowd here. But the common numbers remain the same – ‘Jumma Chumma De de’, ‘Saat samundar paar’, and so on.

Three Wise Monkeys

It was heartbreaking when Three Wise Men shut down for renovations (it still hasn’t re-opened). But we shall make do with the equally fun English karaoke nights on Wednesdays. Unleash the Mick Jagger and Rihanna within you, and no sooner than you start singing, you’ll see people hitting the dance floor too!

Where: Khar
When: Wednesday nights
