Karaoke was invented so that not everyone had to suffer the indignity of being a pop star. Harassed by the paparazzi; sneered at by Simon Cowell and your innermost secrets laughed at by Popbitch; it’s a dog’s life being a pop star.
Today’s Big Deal means you can do the fun bit, singing like Cher/Lady Gaga/Meatloaf, without the sheer, bum-numbing hassle of being famous.
The Karaoke Party Pad is a party room at the end of the main bar area in the rather fantoosh One Up on Royal Exchange Square.
Stylishly decked out in black leather, it’s the perfect, private setting in which to unleash your inner Dolly Parton without the rest of the bar listening in.
The pad can comfortably accommodate up to fifteen would-be Whitneys, Britneys or indeed a similar number of Olly Murs.
The state of the art karaoke system is pre-loaded with over 2000 classic tracks. So, if you want to tackle The Ting Tings or belt it like Beyonce, then all you need supply is the lung power.
The deal includes a welcome Cosmopolitan on arrival but pretending that you’re in Bananarama can be thirsty work.
One Up’s friendly bar staff will provide table service and ensure that no-one in your party need miss Donna’s unforgettable version of Dancing Queen just ‘cos they are getting the drinks in.
If you want to party like it’s 1999, then today’s Big Deal is:
£29 for two hours of fun for ten people in the Karaoke Party Pad at Glasgow’s uber-glam One Up, plus a Cosmopolitan on arrival and table service; a 51% reduction on the standard £60
