Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

Anyone know any half decent karaoke bars in Zuerich that are reasonably central? I've been to Lauschuli (Selnaustrasse) already and it was a tad lack lustre. Recommendations welcome as I was considering arranging a EF karaoke social

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

There is a Karaoke bar/Chinese food restaurant near where I live at the Corner of Asylstrasse and Klosbachstrasse (tram stop Römerhof). They have Karaoke Friday and Saturday nights. I've never been but it says they're open to 4 AM on the weekends.

Restaurant Hui's Asian

lots of information in here: Karaoke in Zurich on March 10, 2007
Laulushli or whatever it's name is - near Selnau - very good.

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

I second Laulushli Karaoke - good place for a group night out.

And not wanting to blow my own trumpet but I once won a Karaoke competition - in Tokyo! And I was up against the CEO of Tokyo Telecom in the final . Won it with the Eagles "Tale It Easy".

Now the funny thing is I can't sing. Never have been able to, flat as a very flat pancake that's been run over by a road roller and then ironed. I have been booed off every Karaoke stage since. I am, in a nutshell, utter crap.

But those Japanese, they recognise hidden talent when they see it .

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

Can check out:
Asian Karaoke
Wehntalerstrasse 121
8057 Zurich
Contact Mike (0764706256).

It is like a hanging out place/club that have Karaoke, Disco, Billiard, Darts, Bar and Lounge facilities.
I am not a Karaoke fan, so cannot really tell if it is good or not. Just went once, since I happen to know one of the owners.
I think they charge Sfr10 entry (incl 1 free drink) over the weekend. Normal day free of charge.

Re: Karaoke night???

I would like to know that too, it sounds more like the place i am looking for. I may be fussy but a chinese or thai restaurant doesnt strike me as a lot of drunken fun. I could be wrong however, never been to one

Re: Karaoke night???

I think I have seen it.
If you walk down the road from Central in the opposite direction to Bellevue (the limmat being to your left) then about hundred meters ahead this place should come up to your right.
........cant remember the name of the place.. but remember reading Karaoke sign ...
From the look of it now much Karaoke was going how ever

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

Hi all,

Is there any update on places to go? Is Lauschuli still the place to go?

Thanks,

Lee

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

I've had a few fun nights at Lauschuli, but the place itself is a bit tacky looking, the drinks a little pricey given the look / feel of the place, and they're a bit disorganized when it comes to lining up the singers and songs.

Toro bar Militarstrasse on Thursdays is an option, it was a bit quiet the first time I went but was getting more popular, and it's a pretty nice bar. Not such a huge selection of songs in English, but lots of songs in Spanish and in general, good fun.

Karaoke from Hell on Tuesdays at Mascotte with the band is pretty cool, but not for the faint-hearted.

My favorite is Acapulco bar on a Sunday. Good bar, very good selection of songs, interesting crowd of regulars & others, well organized and a good atmosphere. Only thing is it starts kinda late on a Sunday (2130ish). Lots of fun if it's public holiday Monday (& very crowded)...

Re: Know any good Karaoke bars in Zuerich?

For those who can read German, hre is an article on the Karaoke scene in Zurich: http://www.nzz.ch/nachrichten/kultur...uhm-1.15036666

I have only tried Lauschuli, but would not recommend it. The only food they had was frozen / fried stuff, at the price of real food. Service was very unfriendly, and that even though we were there with a large group, definitely making their day.

Has anyone tried

- Thai 4 you at Stauffacherstrasse 101 or

- The Raffles in Badenerstrasse 530: http://yellow.local.ch/en/d/Zurich/8...sRao7MVkAyRigw ?
