How to be a rock star in Manchester – even if it is just for 3-4 minutes at a time


With Christmas poking its head round the corner, what better way to get you and your workmates – even the grinches – into the party spirit than by heading to one of Manchester’s ultimate party venues?

Whether you admit it or not, karaoke is always a good idea. It’s a win-win situation. If the singer is good, that’s great. If the singer is bad, it’s even better. It’s the perfect way to to let your hair down over the festive period – or any time of the year, for that matter.

With 30 funky rooms which can hold between 2 – 35 people people – and lots of drinks and a wide range of food – K2 Karaoke Bar in Chinatown is the perfect place to release your inner Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston or Ed Sheeran.

It’s the perfect marriage of karaoke and nightclub with classic Eastern style and futuristic, neon interiors. All the karaoke rooms are individually designed and soundproofed so you don’t have to listen to the cackling wannabees next door. And the best state of the art touch screen karaoke technology is on hand for all your song requests.

With thousands of songs to choose from, this is your chance to steal the stage. Or if you’ve been longing to sing karaoke with that special friend, this is your chance to duet.

If you don’t fancy yourself as the next Ed Sheeran, sit back and watch others strut their stuff. Just make sure you record them for hours of endless entertainment when the alcohol wears off.

Waiting staff are at the touch of a button to keep you and your pals hydrated and refreshed throughout your own personal concert. You won’t want to leave – and you won’t have to until the early hours as K2’s late licence means it’s open till 4am at weekends.

K2 is open Christmas Eve between 7pm-3am, Boxing Day 7pm-4am, and on New Year’s Eve 5pm-6am. It will be closed on Christmas Day and between 1st-3rd January.
