It is undeniable that Filipinos love to sing. Our fondness of the craft has been recorded in history. Through singing we can express our emotions; we can say we sing our hearts out. And what better way to do so than singing in karaoke bars?
Ever since the introduction of karaoke machines in the country, karaoke bars have been some of the go-to places to hang out. When thinking about weekend plans, it usually involves karaoke singing. In Cebu, these establishments are open even on weekday mornings, but more people gather beginning on Friday nights. Here are the top karaoke bars in Cebu you should check out:
Hi-Fi Family KTV
Customer service is crucial. This is what people will remember the most in an establishment. Hi-Fi Family KTV is one of the karaoke bars in Cebu that is famous for having an accommodating staff. That is why, despite the rates being more expensive than other KTV places, people still go back to Hi-Fi.
The interior design of the establishment is inspired by the family KTVs in China. You may not have an idea on what it looks like, but a simple explanation would be this: it is sophisticated. The well-thought-out decoration is noticeable the moment you enter the premises.
With rates starting US$8, the rooms are exceptionally spacious. The small room, for example, that is said to fit 12 people can accommodate more with enough space to dance as the music carries you away.
Forget about waiting for your turn to pick a song from that old book. Hi-Fi boasts of its high-tech equipment, which includes the library of songs that can be accessed through a touch-screen monitor.
If you just want to chill, you can hang out in the bar, where you can choose local and international beverages. Every night, there will be a live performance by a featured artist, and you can brag your dance skills through Kinect installed in the lobby.
The food is outstanding. You can choose from Filipino dishes (such as the bestselling lechon kawali) to international favorites (like pasta, buffalo wings, beef salpicao, and pizza). The varied options are not limited to full meals. You can also try Cebuano street food, like ginabot or kwek-kwek, if you are just looking for finger foods.
With a promise to deliver high-end karaoke experience, Hi-Fi Family KTV is truly perfect for gatherings and a memorable experience.
