Big group of us turned up and me and my boyfriend wasn’t let it, the only queer ones in the group- with a lot of unpleasantness from the bouncers. For a place that claims to be a safe space didn’t seem very inclusive

Celebrated my birthday here and it was AMAZING. Highly recommend. Try coming early if you wanna sing more. We booked in advance and got there by 8pm so we got to sing loads. Great vibe, great pizza upstairs. Love this place.

A really weird setup. We’d got talking to a party whilst waiting to be let in, and as they were far fewer than the fifteen they’d paid for suggested that the four of us (two couples after a dinner) joined them. Upon overhearing this, the overly eager blonde security guard decided that wasn’t allowed and we couldn’t possible joined them. We were more than happy to pay the additional charge to enter, and suggested to do so however the security guard was adamant that the venue was full (despite already knowing that they were at least 6 entrants down)I never care enough to write a review either way, but if I owned the venue I’d probably like to know the weird commercial choices the staff were making off my behalf…

What a place!Firstly, a massive thank you to the Karaoke hole for honouring a date change for a large booking incredibly last minute! The compassion and flexibility meant the absolute world! (Huge thank you to Dave who was absolutely lovely over emails and phone)We had the most amazing time and I had the most memorable birthday (30th)All staff and queens were so accommodating and lovely.,I cannot recommend this place enough, we’re going to have to make this place a regular now!Thank you karaoke hole!

It's just not worth your effort or time - you'll be lucky to get one song in 2.5 hours, and expect songs to randomly skip the queue in front of your request.The drag queens are fine, but honestly this place should just be called The Hole. Go to something like Lucky Voice instead if you want to actually karaoke. I regret wasting my Friday evening here 🤷‍♂️

To be honest, I really enjoyed my night here… but the hosts faces were as if they were sucking lemons.I attended Karaoke hole on the 24th of April and was told I was “over performing” :)I sang chico time (I know, iconic for the X factor fans reading this), and asked the hosts (virgin and another lady) with very glum faces to join in. When they wouldn’t, I asked them to smile a bit more (cheeky, I know). I then proceeded to get hushed off the stage by them, v profesh xxxxI told our host about the divas (who had an unbeknown hatred to the beloved Chico) to be told “you were out performing the hosts” by DavidTALENT IS TALENT, try respect that and have a bit of fun xx

We had an amazing night at the Karaoke Hole! It was just perfect. The staff was very nice and also the other guests. It was like a huge family gathering. I felt very welcome and accepted. Unfortunately we had to leave early because our friend injured her ankle during the day. The staff even gave us ice to put on our friends ankle, very kind.:) We could have stayed the whole night and next time we definetely will! Please tell the very nice lady from security that everything was absolutely perfect for us, she wasn't sure because we left early. Thank you for everything and see you soon!

Had my birthday party here on Friday, what an amazing night. Me and my friends stayed from 8pm til close and all of us had a blast— staff were so great, and drinks were delicious and not overpriced. Best moment of all was one of the bar staff singing an opera cover of Creep by Radiohead— wow, they were amazing!! Bravo!!

Been to the karaoke hole before for an absolutely brilliant time with incredible hosts/hostesses. Saturday night was incredibly disappointing - Bloon and the Virgin (I think that we’re there names) drank so much tequila that between themselves, their not very entertaining banter and the bar staff’s need to sing there were very few opportunities for the paying customers to get any time on the stage. The place wasn’t packed and multiple groups walked out making it painfully obvious that it wasn’t the customer song queue that was the issue. Really annoying. I recommend checking who is hosting next time… avoid these two for sure.

Booked a big table and not a single one of us got to do karaoke despite our songs being on their system for 3 hours. Lots of bar staff got to perform though.

Brilliant fun. Shigella was a great host and kicked off the karaoke in fabulous style. All the staff were great fun and even when the Singa App crashed they kept everyone amused and found a work around. Didn't dampen the party spirit at all. Great cocktails and drinks at reasonable prices. Can't wait to go again.

5 stars for the positive vibes and amazing crowd, 4 stars for the drinks/ prices and 3 stars for the mood the bar staff and security were in.I'll come back either way. Always good to see a place welcoming everyone with open arms, no matter who you identify as or who you love!

Had the best time last night but sadly lost my debit card. However popped in today to see if anyone had found it and couldn’t believe it but they had found my card and kept it safe. Such a lovely place with lovely people. FAB.U.LOUS XXXX

The staff were lovely and the DQ’s brilliant but the same 5 people will sing every song and they let about 20% more people in than they should. As a consequence it isn’t a karaoke night where you will get to sing karaoke and you will spend the whole night sweating and being shoved around by people as there is literally no room to move. We booked an area, we still had no room at all and spent the night being pushed into the tables. 13 people and not one of us got to sing, despite submitting songs early. It’s a good night but don’t expect it to be amazing.

Fantastic venue and really great atmosphere. Also love the fact that you can book a table in advance. The crowd were really supportive and singers were fantastic and fun. The host Rodent was very enthusiastic, warm and encouraging. I will be coming again. 🙂
