Karaoke done right
You don't have to be into Karaoke to have fun on this staple night out in Beirut. Al Mandaloun has been pulling crowds on Mondays night for many years now because it's just done differently. Firstly, the singers are backed up with the band and if you're voice and tempo are really off, you'll find yourself elevated by a pro who will come in for a duet. Also, to make sure the night is not a series of broken, crackled, out of tune voices screaming, you'll find a number of professionals who will fill in the gaps and keep the singing on a very high scale.
You can select a couple of dozen English songs and a majority of classical Arabic ones to sing on the stage in front of the band, but be prepared ... there's no getting away from singing at least one song ... it's just too much fun !
