Karaoke at Yes R&B is definitely taken to a whole other level. Here, amateur singers will be spoiled with a choice of 30 karaoke rooms in 30 different styles, with themes such as theatre, prison break, neon, the 90’s barbershop and the dream girl rooms which are decorated with mirror elements and shimmering glitter. What attracts us the most is the 69, which is an upside-down room where the floor is the wall and also the motorcycle room where you can sit and sing in style on the motorbike within the bright yellow-painted room. Live out your fantasies; go for the room you’re feelin’ yourself most.
