Karaoke is undoubtedly one of the most stimulating ways to spend a memorable evening with friends. Although most pubs that host karaoke have an extensive and engaging playlist, which is assured to have a song for everyone, they unfortunately do not have a dance floor for those who wish to sway the night away. Fortunately, there are two exceptional pubs in Mumbai that have a dance floor for the ones with ants in their pants:
Amidst an ever-enthusiastic crowd cheering its lungs out for you, Copa manages to exude an almost frenzy-like karaoke culture, featured every Tuesday night. Apart from the striking and spacious floor which seems perennially packed with high-spirited people, Copa sports an outdoor area with wooden swing-seated tables and al fresco area, which projects warmth and quietude. The exceptional décor is characterized by unique and quirky posters that adorn the walls. The playlist is a good mix of old-school classics and 21st century pop hits, letting you enjoy hits from ‘Hotel California’ by Eagles to ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, all in one evening. Savour some delectable finger food, which you can wash down with some refreshing blends. The Baileys Kulfi is heavenly and worth a try.
PS: Brace yourself for that one dude who will insist on singing the whole of Gangnam Style with the full dance experience. You have been warned.
Firangi Paani (Andheri)
Calling out to the bathroom singer in you, Firangi Paani hosts karaoke nights every Sunday, with a song list that includes safe popular classics for the uninitiated as well as obscure indie hits for those willing to take a risk. The rich leather seating, gorgeous frescos, striking fireplace, and antiquated décor give this pub an antiquated British feel. Select your favourite from their comprehensive bar menu including exotic cocktails and mocktails to accompany the delectable array of Continental, Italian, and American spreads, which is sure to captivate your senses; definitely do not miss out on their sizzlers. The striking disco lights of the dance floor will make you want to move your feet. Bring your gang to this Mumbai hotspot and be sure to boogie the night away.
PS: You may find it difficult to let go off the mike.
