Karaoke is becoming increasingly popular in Kazakhstan, with many establishments now offering private karaoke rooms, but Da Vinci goes one better. What used to be a glamorous nightclub is now a club devoted entirely to the art of sing-along. Reserve one of the sumptuous tables (from 15,000-45,000 KZT deposit), some with drapes for extra privacy, which are arranged around the central dance floor with a mezzanine floor above from which VIPs can oversee proceedings. Focus centres on the stage where comperes keep things under control and occasional live performances take place. Most guests choose to sing from the comfort (and relative anonymity) of their seats. Wade through the hefty list to find ‘your song’ – there are plenty of English-language numbers in amongst the Russian favourites. Note that karaoke is taken quite seriously in Kazakhstan, and that Kazakhstanis tend to be rather good singers… but don’t let that deter your inner Celine.
