Thursday nights is Karaoke night here at Metro restaurant and bar! We get started at 10 p.m. and keep the tunes going until we close. It’s a fun night filled with music, laughter, dancing, and occasionally some jaw-dropping performances (both good and bad!). We look forward to Karaoke night every week, but if this is your first time joining us, we have some tips to help you prepare for the best Karaoke night of your life. We do have to warn you, though…once you’ve been to our Karaoke night, you’ll want to come back again and again!
Prepping for Karaoke Night
Wear your best performance outfit.
You can really wear pretty much whatever you want to Karaoke; no one is going to judge you here! But the best Karaoke outfits are the ones that take your stage performance to the next level. If you’ve lined up a bunch of classic country tunes, then pull on your favorite pair of cowboy boots and slap on a cowboy hat. If you are in the mood to belt out some show tunes, pull on something sparkly to catch the lights and enhance your time on stage. Or if you’ve been ready to rock and have some classic 80’s headbangers in mind, wear your favorite old band shirt, ripped jeans tease your hair up big. Not sure what you want to sing or think you might just watch? We’ll welcome you however you dress for the night!
Develop your song list.
It’s time to think about what you want to sing up on stage. If this is your first time doing Karaoke, you might want to keep it simple and classic. Some of the most popular Karaoke songs include:
- Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond
- I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
- Killing Me Softly With His Song by the Fugees
- Islands in the Stream by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton
- I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys
These tunes can be a great place to start! If you are an advanced-level Karaoke singer, just think about your personal greatest hits. We’re sure to have the music you want to sing ready to go. Just remember to have more than one song ready to go; you don’t want someone to sing it earlier in the night and steal your thunder! If you are still stuck, we’ll have a song list you can peruse waiting in our restaurant and bar.
Practice, practice, practice.
Now it’s time to practice your way to Karaoke perfection! That doesn’t mean you have to sing one song over and over all week. Just sing your heart out whenever and wherever you can! We highly suggest your morning shower and daily commute as the top rehearsal spaces. You’ll be able to belt out all of your favorite tunes and start getting ready for the big Thursday night show.
Leave your inhibitions behind.
Karaoke is so much fun, but it’s even more fun if you stop worrying about what others are thinking about you. Just get up there and sing! Throw yourself into your song choice and have the time of your life. Trust us when we tell you that we’ve been doing Karaoke night at our restaurant and bar long enough to know that the less embarrassed you are and the fewer inhibitions you have, the more fun Karaoke night is going to be for you!
Get ready to cheer everyone on!
Half the fun of Karaoke night at Metro is cheering on the other singers! You’ll see and hear it all at our Karaoke night and we’re proud that we’ve created a fun place where people can let it all out. You’ll love watching others, cheering them on, and hearing them cheer you on as you take the stage.
