Local karaoke chain Teo Heng is one of the top names that come to mind when it comes to letting loose and unleashing your inner pop diva or soulful crooner.

But that's not the only place to get your sing-along on (and since it's pretty hard to snag a spot at Teo Heng right now). Here's where else you can check out, and many of them boast fun Instagrammable themed rooms, too.

Cash Studio Family Karaoke

Aside from Teo Heng, Cash Studio's one of the longtime players in the industry, with five outlets across the island.

Each room is outfitted with a mini stage equipped with a retro microphone so you can hold your own mini-concert, as well as a disco ball to turn up the party mood.

And over at its Djitsun Bedok outlet, you can create your own music video ($80+) with a two-hour session.

There's a 1.5-hour practice session to warm up your vocals, and you'll get half an hour in a studio with a green screen where you'll be captured on video, and superimposed on a glitzy stage setting.

Price: From $12.90++ to $29.90++ per person (excluding the Simpang Bedok outlet, which is temporarily closed)

Visit Cash Studio's website for more information and a list of locations.
