Gather your friends, share your love of karaoke classics
Karaoke is not for everyone, but the shyest to the most experienced performer will revel in what K Box has on offer.
To secure a private room, it's easy to book online – and there is no deposit required. The minimum number of people required for a private room is 8, but I would recommend at least 10 as it makes it cheaper for the group. There are options for how long you want to be there, from a minimum of 2 hours through to 4 hours plus free time.
I would suggest this option: 10 people from 8.00pm for 4 hours plus free time. The cost for this option is $50/person and includes $300 drinks credit (just check upon arrival what drinks aren't included). I recommend using the pricing function on the website to work out the cost for your group before booking.

Menu options to get you started (operated by easy-to-use remote)
Payment is usually required upon arrival, otherwise they'll present you the invoice at the end of the night. If the former doesn't occur, they'll hold the ID of the person that made the booking (securely kept at reception). The invoice is one transaction only, no exceptions.
There is an option to purchase food from their menu, but you're able to being your own food but not allowed to bring alcohol – and security will check bags upon arrival.
Now onto the fun stuff – songs! K Box has a huge selection, everything from Backstreet Boys to Drake to Blink 182 to Elvis Costello to Dolly Parton to Take That to Belinda Carlisle. Songs lists can be pre-selected online, via their app (available to Android or iPhone) or of course in the room. There are two books in the room – one listed by song title the other by artist, and depending on the size of your group you'll have up to 4 microphones! Also be prepared for the magic that is hilarious karaoke film clips, but you'll often get the original ones.
