Sing Along With The Squad At These Bars In Chennai For Epic Karaoke Nights

Anna posted on 21 November

Chennai is an incredibly musical city, with great bands coming out of the woodwork and let’s not forget our Margazhi season that has kicked off. But for those who aren’t in bands or professionally qualified to sing, karaoke nights are everything {especially after you’ve had a drink or two}. And despite what you might think, there are tons of venues around the city that have karaoke nights. With well-known local musicians working as KJs {karaoke jockeys}, you can be sure to have an absolute blast. So, for those looking to explore something new and get in on the fun, here’s where you can find karaoke happening almost every night of the week.

The Velveteen Rabbit

Themed like a prohibition era bar, The Velveteen Rabbit was located below R.A Puram’s favourite haunt L’Amandier. But with the restaurant having closed down, the bar has expanded upstairs to take up a lot more room and offer a lot more on their menu. Sip on specially crafted cocktails and mingle with your friends every day of the week, and then on Wednesday nights, you get to sing your heart out!
