SquareMeal Review of The Karaoke Hole

Bronze Award

This underground Dalston bolthole (cheekily nicknamed ‘The K Hole’) is a riot for group nights out, featuring late-night karaoke sessions hosted by a fierce drag queen. It differs from your typical karaoke joint by not sectioning off crooners into private rooms or booths; instead, punters are invited to sing on stage in front of the whole crowd. While that might sound terrifying, it does wonders for the venue’s atmosphere, and after some encouragement from the drag-queen hosts (and a lot of Dutch courage), we can confirm that any stage fright quickly disappears faster than you can say I Will Survive.

Drinks wise, you can order from a selection of ‘Liquid Courage’ sips boasting names which riff off gay culture and karaoke classics. We were particularly taken by the fiery Queen of the Desert Margarita, livened up with a smoked paprika salt rim, or you can enjoy pitchers such as the vodka and peach-based F*ck The Pain Away, shots, beers and glasses of bubbly. Peckish performers can refuel themselves with a giant pizza from Voodoo Ray’s upstairs. LGBTQ-friendly and loads of fun, The Karaoke Hole is a laugh-a-minute affair tailor-made for karaoke lovers... time to tune up your vocal chords.
