Time Out Sydney

Even for a subterranean Sydney karaoke joint, K Square is rabbit warren-y. You burrow down off George Street through dark tiled walls all sprayed with graffiti 
to your room, which, if you’re a big group, will be a blissfully air-conditioned space that fits 50. We’re loving the playing card-style Kings and Jacks on the wallpaper almost as much as we’re loving our own bathroom (and it’s clean!). Order a bite – the menu is mostly Thai – or a three-litre tower of Asahi.

The system
Plus one: most songs feature the original music videos (no longing gazes across Manila Bay here). Plus two: there’s a book as well as a searchable digital system. Mild minus: they play the original vocal track with each song – good if you’re a blender, bad if you were planning your big all-ears-on-me Dreamgirls moment for later in the night.

The songs
A big list, and current – Haim were there just as they were breaking. Alas, no Johnny Cash.

There are rooms for one or two people, if you wanted to pop in for 
a lunch-time practice sesh. Rooms range from one to two people ($28/hour) to 26-50 people ($148/hour).
