Karaoke operator aims to hit a high note at Waterloo

30th October 2023 | Jack Oliver

Karaoke venue chain Lucky Voice is set to invest £1.6m into a new site at London’s Waterloo, becoming its first London site to the south of the River Thames.

Taking a 3,200 sq ft unit at Waterloo Station’s The Sidings, Lucky Voice’s newest location will be situated underneath platforms 20-24, Propel reported.

The Waterloo venue will become the chain’s fifth in London, following on from sites in Soho, Islington, Holborn, and Liverpool Street. The operator also has a site in Brighton.

Charlie Elek, managing director of Lucky Voice, said that opening near major transport hubs is a “key part” of its growth strategy.

The venue will be home to eight karaoke booths, a late-night bar, a VIP karaoke pod, a larger 20-capacity pod for bigger groups, and will have a late-night 2:30am licence.

Lucky Voice Waterloo will also offer a menu which includes pizza, tacos, and small plates.

The company revealed that its most recent opening in Liverpool Street was its best ever, with revenue during the first month up by 12% on its previous record at Holborn in 2019.
