The Karaoke Hole

Now Open

What they say:

Dalston may be no stranger to the debauched and outrageous, but there's a new bar in town and it's taking things to another level. Open Thursday - Saturday, Karaoke Hole will be a late-night den filled with a glitter-ball-decked stage, wind machines, and a karaoke screen. Some of London's leading drag queens will kick the night off, including Sink the Pink superstar Little Jimmy Johnson, after which it's a free for all on the karaoke. If it sounds dangerous, that's cause it is...

What we say:

The time has come for you to KARAOKE for your life at this new basement of naughtiness. Karaoke Hole is basically our dream night out, from the karaoke battles through to the cocktails. From the people behind Dalston Superstore, this new corner opens at six for table bookings and cocktails, such as Total Eclipse and Dancing Queen. After watching some of the capital's biggest drag acts show you how to shimmy and sashay, the mic is up for grabs. In the words of the great Ru Paul: 'good luck and don't f**k it up'.
