10 Budget-Friendly Karaoke Studios In S'pore From As Low As $1 For 2 Songs

Recently I chanced upon this cute little Sanrio character on Netflix (of all places).

You might be wondering, how does this have anything to do with the article? Let me explain. This little oppressed, bullied, Japanese corporate Red Panda OL (office lady), has a secret.

Every time she’s had a bad day at work, she heads to the karaoke studio near her place, and screams to Death Metal alone.

I’m not saying that I love Death Metal but like her, I understand that there’s something cathartic in belting your heart out in a karaoke studio.

While Singapore has no shortage of karaoke studios, here are some of the best ones I’ve found so you can have your very own scream sesh.

1. Cash Studio Family Karaoke

Cash Studio Family Karaoke has become one of the household KTV studios in Singapore.

It truly lives up to the stereotypical look of a karaoke studio, with the neon lights, dark rooms and reflective floors.

Every room is decked out with a disco ball, disco lights and even a podium with a mic stand, so you can have your moment in the limelight.

No wonder Lulu The Movie was filmed in Cash Studio Family Karaoke.

If you’re parched from all that belting, free drinks are available too.

They have 5 outlets across Singapore so pop by if you’re looking to sing your stress away.

3. K-Garden Family KTV

Even though it brands itself as a family KTV, it doesn’t really seem like one.

However, they do offer very affordable rates. $10 nett for 6 hours of singing (which is honestly excessive) and 1 free drink?

This new KTV is Singapore’s first themed karaoke, more specifically, themed rooms. With a total of 25 themed rooms (including a LINE-themed room!) in a space of 7,000 square feet, singing in this KTV is an experience all on its own.

It has been lauded as one of the CHEAPEST karaoke joints in Singapore. That’s not all, the service is great, with the friendly staff and a rather impressive sound system, this is a great place for a millennial to sing his problems away.

Our only gripe? It closes too early.

9. Teo Heng KTV Studio

Teo Heng KTV Studio has really upped their game in the past few years, constantly setting the bar for being the best and most family-friendly karaoke joint in Singapore.

They don’t serve alcohol, if you’re wondering. So even the kids can join in the singing, tone-deaf or not.

Also, if you’re the type to avoid KTVs because the songs you listen to are too indie, you’d be genuinely surprised because we’ve seen some pretty indie songs show up in the song library.

We see you, Daniel Caesar.

Rates for a small room for 4 go from $8 per hour, which explains why Teo Heng KTV studio still remains a crowd favourite till today.

So when all else is lost, one thing remains a constant – Teo Heng KTV Studio is the best place for karaoke.

The best part about this place is, they charge you by song and not by duration or room.

Every 2 songs will cost you just $1. Which means you’ll probably tire before you realise you’re spending way too much.
