Something of a Hong Kong institution, many a ‘quiet drink or two’ evenings have taken a turn and ended at Red Mr. Eight years on from its opening, it now boasts four locations across Hong Kong and Kowloon, with each location featuring a wide range of Cantopop songs and English-language classics, from chart-toppers to old classics. Food and drink are available to order, and the venue caters to small and large parties. On a weekend, it’s worth booking a room ahead of time, although they do accept walk-ins. Prices start from $75 per person for a standard room, while party rooms require a minimum spend from $1,800 to $2,400 if you really want to push the boat out.
Red Mr, multiple locations, including 5 Tonnochy Road, Wan Chai
The global franchise has hosted Hong Kong karaoke nights for over 20 years, with venues on the island and across Kowloon.

Prices range from $79 to $228 per hour.
