To assist work ice breakers, hen nights and jaunty nights on the town, we took a look around for the very best karaoke bars in Shoreditch. All you need to do is decide on a song.

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect karaoke venue. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps of hiring a karaoke venue in Shoreditch.

4. Book the equipment: Most venues will have the necessary equipment for karaoke, but if you’re hosting the party at home, you’ll need to hire a sound system and lights.
