Along Kingsway, right before Edmonds skytrain station, there is a hidden spot for KTV establishments. KTV is a colloquial term for the type of karaoke rooms that can be commonly in China.
In the west, karaoke happens at a bar during specific nights where guests request songs that they perform in front of the whole bar. The major difference KTV offers is private rooms. Groups of friends can belt their hearts out to just each other. Branching out further from the communal bar vibe, KTV alludes to clubbing life in a fun way – think disco balls, and sparkly accents.
If you’re looking for KTV places in Burnaby, here are local joints to check out.
Metro Max Karaoke
Owned by The One, a busy and beloved Taiwanese restaurant located nearby known for their huge portions for meals and drinks, Metro Max has one distinct advantage over its competitors when its bubble tea and food are served direct from The One. Oh, and they also offer all-you-can-sing for $20.
Address: 5912 Kingsway.
The ace up Galchae’s sleeve is unlimited popcorn and updated song banks. Some karaoke places are limited for the English selection, however Galchae generally has a better selection in terms of newer tracks. Also, their rooms win at funky decor.
Address: 5679 Imperial St.
A classic establishment that’s been around the block more than a couple times, it might be time for a renovation here but for some, the dive-in-the-hole suits the mood for a night out.
Address: 6262 Kingsway.
