Get a headstart on your Christmas carols (or if you simply want to sing your broken heart out) at these upmarket KTV joints.
Yep, this is still the go-to place for a posh night out. You can do more than just channel your inner Mariah at K Box's swanky boutique karaoke suites, with more than 20 rooms in each outlet. Here you chill out at the cool bar counter or lounge area, swigging cocktails and beer. Plus the place also has a gourmet menu and various package deals.

Tang Music Box
The latest addition to Clarke Quay promises to give K Suites a run for its money. With over 25 karaoke rooms on offer, it is one of the city’s biggest yet. Each room is decorated with a Chinois-theme in mind, with elements drawn from Hong Kong and Old Shanghai. We love the fact that all rooms are equipped with a BMB sound system, one of the best we’ve tried out so far.

HQ Karaoke & Bar
Swathed in hot pink set against black sofas and bedecked with huge chandeliers, it has become a fabulous open concept hangout frequented by models and celebrities. This one’s different from the rest with its open bar concept (no individual rooms here, you just have to sing along with the rest of them), but that’s the whole fun of it.
95 Club St., 6423-4695, www.facebook.com/HQkaraokebar. Open Mon-Wed 5:30pm-1am; Thu-Sat 5:30pm-3am.
