As in other parts of the world, karaoke is one of the activities that people love to do in Jakarta. It is a popular form of entertainment in the city, and there are many KTV bars around. Here are some of the places that people frequent for a time of karaoke in Jakarta.
The Happy Puppy is a karaoke place that is ideal for families. It is a lively, fun, and entertaining place minus the wild atmosphere of the nightlife. The place was established in 1992. Because the word “karaoke” at the time was largely associated with the nightlife, the owner of Happy Puppy, Santoso Setyadji, sought to redeem the concept of karaoke by targeting the more wholesome crowd. Thus, Happy Puppy was marketed as a family karaoke place. The idea was widely accepted by the public, and Happy Puppy became a popular hangout place for clean karaoke in Jakarta. You can rent a room where you and your family and friends can enjoy a night of food and singing. Happy Puppy has branches not only in Jakarta but also in Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Semarang, Balikpapan, and others.
