Came here once because of the chinese food that is located right outside. The seller told me I could eat inside... glad I did! Great place to be with friends or alone. Nice place, smoking allowed and great singers and catalog. Just give it a try!

If you don't treat Karaoke seriously then this place is for you. although the locals seem to get priority you'll still get your go. Best with lots of friends and too much drink.

I'm a huge karaoke fan, so was excited to head to Sam's, but wasn't expecting to be treated like a leper. It's always the way in any karaoke bar around the globe, that the regulars get priority over any newcomer - it's just the way it is. However, to follow this guideline to the point where the newcomers are shunned... More

This is a very very touristy place. It might be alright for you if you like that, and are very fond of karaoke, but you will probably only see hammered tourists and expensive drinks. Find a local place instead is my advice.

We visited Sams on a Friday night and it was fantastic! It was non stop karaoke, with a huge choice of songs! The atmosphere was great and we danced the night away! The only downside was that it was clearly a bar full of locals, and a few of the "regular" girl singers hated us being there and tried their... More

We ended up in here every night staff were fab as so was the doorman word of advice go in before 9pm or there is a charge on the door of 30kk. The drinks again are expensive it was around £15 for 2 pints of lager so you either take lots of money or just don't drink haha

While living in Copenhagen for a couple of months, this was one of my favorite places to spend the night. The karaoke concept seems not very popular in Europe, but I noticed in Copenhagen the karaoke bars are still relevant! It's an excellent oppertunity to meet the local people (tourists and foreigners are a minority) while enjoying the performances. Between... More
