Ten-Second Takeaway

All of us have a bathroom singer within us and we think it’s high time to scream and shout and let it all out. Whether you want to relive your old days {Summer of 69, anyone?} or just want to drown in chaar botal vodka, these karaoke nights in Delhi have you covered.

TC Bar & Restaurant

They have karaoke twice a week-hosted by two different sets of people, giving it two different feels. They’re pretty heavy on rock music, so we suggest you brush up on your Led Zep and Pink Floyd. Also, 3 Doors Down seems to be everybody’s favourite band here.

Garage Inc.

Sing some old English favourites {get out that Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and your Fast Car} or the latest chartbusters {we’re looking at you, Rihanna}; if you just want to watch from the sidelines, that works too. Try your hand at a game of foosball and devour the sinful fried Snickers bar.

When: Sundays, 9pm onwards

Summer House Café

They do a mix of pop, rock and classics {all English} but if you have a special request to make, they’re more than willing to do their best to make it happen. If you haven’t gotten over missing Chris Martin sing live here, they’d love to fix you with some of Coldplay’s best numbers.

This Singapore import already had us at their cocktails {Singapore Sling and Harry’s Old Fashioned} and the fried calamari. Come Wednesdays and the space completely transforms with professional singers, and bathroom singers, taking the mic and singing along to their favourite English tunes.

They’re quite open to taking requests, so whether you want to go old school with Tracy Chapman or more Taylor Swift, don’t be shy to belt those tunes out.

Route 04

You can look forward to a plethora of songs to choose from, and a chilled-out ambience, not to mention a range of cocktails and beer {they do regular promotions on these}. The selection here tends to be pop so we’re thinking Maroon 5, Tove Lo, Rihanna, Lana Del Rey and the like.

While you’re munching on some bratwurst and schnitzel and chugging down those brews, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to grab the mic and show off your singing skills to the world. Friday is karaoke night at Zu Tisch and they’re playing a mix of pop, rock or anything you like.

Castle 9

The go-to place for the office crowd in CP for cheap eats and drinks, Castle 9 also hosts a karaoke night once a week featuring the best of Bollywood hits {popular requests include songs by Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and of course, Arijit Singh.} We say, go here to unwind after a hard day’s work; a great way to break the ice with co-workers.

Make this spot your post-work digs and while you’re at it, you could nurse a drink and deliver a few tunes or so. Their karaoke sessions are in the basement on Sundays with old school tunes- think Kishore Kumar and Frank Sinatra, but if you head there in a group of more than ten people, they’ll let you use the basement between Monday to Thursday as well. Private sessions? Get ready for some sing-offs!

When: Sundays, 7pm onwards

Where: SCO 388, Near IFFCO Metro Station, Sector 29, Gurgaon

Nearest Metro Station: IFFCO Chowk
