Smack dab in the center of the fashionable Workers’ Stadium clubbing complex, this luxurious underground karaoke palace offers Beijing’s best-dressed party animals 39 super-swank private song suites to go bananas in. Perks include up-to-date song and music video lists that are some of the best in town and a lavish complimentary late-night buffet for those needing a pick-me-up before picking up the mic once more.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Because it’s in the city’s most glam of club districts, the look at Tango tends to be equal parts super-stylish and mega-sparkly. We’d wear a fun party dress and funky heels.
GO HERE WITH
Well-coiffed mix of expats and locals.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The super swanky private rooms make it ever so easy for us to channel our inner divas, and once channeled the fantastic selection of English-language showstoppers gives us plenty of material to go wild with.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The karaoke equipment could use an update.
GOOD TO KNOW
For most locals, karaoke (or KTV as it’s known on the Mainland and in Taiwan and Hong Kong) is serious (and competitive) business, not just an opportunity for drunken caterwauling. If you go out singing with some Beijing pals, expect them to treat each song more like an American Idol audition than a silly sing-song session among friends. Tango often runs weeknight deals like RMB 300 all-inclusive evenings–check local expat magazines for the latest listings.
