    Hi guys,

    Hope you can help. A friend from Chicago is coming to London in mid-November and I'm flying over to meet her. She's a singer and hoped to hit a gay bar or two that has an open mike like we used to do in Chicago many moons ago.

    Does London offer such a thing? Any recommendations?

    FYI "open mike" is like karaoke but with a live pianist or band for accompaniment, in case anyone isn't familiar with this term.

    Thanks in advance

    uh-oh. Sounds like that's not too popular over there. Hmm, any suggestions for normal karaoke or... <> a straight club with an open mike?

    I think you'll have a problem finding an open mike singing venue in London.

    There's a few that do Karaoke though, so if you give me an idea of days when needed, I'll try find some.

    Where abouts in London is your friend staying?
