3. Singing at the Weekly Karaoke.

If crazy drunken nights aren’t really your thing, how about kicking back with a meal and a few drinks at Ember Lounge with your friends and joining in the weekly Karaoke session? (Or just sit back and listen to people murder your favourite songs)

Get yourself down and enjoy the fun from 8pm- Midnight every Tuesday!
