Islington boozer joins the karaoke craze
One of Islington’s best known boozers has joined the karaoke craze by opening a dedicated room on the top floor.
The Old Queen’s Head, in Essex Road, Islington, is well known as a party venue featuring some of the biggest bands and DJ’s in the land at it’s soirees.
Now, they have added a new string to their disco bow as revellers are invited to belt out the hits in the new custom built sing-along suite, with the interesting tag-line “what happens in the karaoke room stays in the karaoke room”.
The booth itself will be open every night, and wannabe Robbie Williams’s can choose from a library of more than 7,500 songs, with 50 of the latest chart tunes added every week.
Other bonus features include a box of outfits, wigs and accessories so punters can really get into character, a booze button to order drinks and free entry to the venue if the room is booked on Friday and Saturday nights.

Steve Ball, head of the Colombo group, which runs the pub, said: “The Old Queen’s Head Karaoke Room will be a welcome addition to our pub and we’re all really excited to add our unique spin on it. Now we’ll have chart topping bands and DJs playing downstairs, and the rest of us singing their songs badly upstairs.”
Private karaoke rooms have seen a huge increase in popularity of late, with the nearby Lucky Voice Karaoke Rooms, in Upper Street, a firm favourite among the Islington party-set.
