On Board Karaoke is a Japanese karaoke venue in Earls Court and although it is small it is a great place to hang out with friends or hire for parties. It has 3 rooms starting at just £12 rental per hour and also has a small bar in the reception area where food and drinks can be ordered. The concept of this venue is that the rooms are supposed to be like being on board a ship or train, however it is very much like the typical Japanese karaoke boxes that you would find in the high-rise karaoke buildings in Japan. On Board Karaoke is Japanese owned which adds to it’s authenticity and has a selection of over 70,000 Japanese songs as well as English, Chinese, Korean and Filipino songs. The staff are friendly and always nearby to help although it may be a little too near for some since they can hear every single song that you belt out! The staff certainly looked amused at the reception area after my rendition of Celine Dion’s Beauty & The Beast lol….
You can find On Board Karaoke on 8 Kenway Road, with the nearest tube station being Earls Court. It is in the basement of Orjowan Express (a Lebanese bakery) so just enter the bakery and you will see a staircase immediately on the left which goes down to On Board Karaoke.
