Tucked mysteriously behind an ice-cream bar on Bourke St in true Melbourne style, the four-level party house that is Heroes continues to be a hit with punters since it opened in July. Buzzing with its eclectic, neon décor, hawker-style barbeque and rooftop bar, Heroes’ karaoke space shows no signs of slowing down, with three new private karaoke rooms newly opened and ready to take on summer playlists across town.
The new private karaoke rooms are decked out for your party needs and are located on the basement level of Heroes and upstairs on level one. The open-mic style karaoke lounge is now on level two, but the new rooms below are officially open to the public after much anticipation.
Bookings start at two people if date night is set to bring out your inner Beyonce and Jay-Z, but rooms are designed to cater for groups of up to 25 people for birthday shindigs or other special events.
Pricing starts at $40 per person for two-hour sessions, which includes a $30 drink tab per person to loosen up vocal chords if nerves get in the way. Save disappoint by booking a private karaoke room well in advance, here.
The venue is also taking up Christmas bookings for dinner, drinks and karaoke for those with a penchant for all things Asian barbeque paired with Mariah Christmas classics.

- Shape of you – Ed Sheeran

For those lucky enough to have nabbed tickets to Heroes’ Rooftop Yum Cha(r) events – additional dates have been announced to fall on each Sunday of December, continuing with their in-house menu. The first three events featuring guest chefs from Fancy Hank’s, Rice Paper Sisters and Annam have since sold-out.
Heroes is a three-level Singaporean-inspired rooftop and karaoke bar that opened in July this year. The new venue is brought to you by the team from Fancy Hank’s and Good Heavens with all the food being cooked over fire inside a ferociously decorated setting full of hanging lanterns and dragons.
