What happens in your party room at night?

Kids party rooms are a feature of many bowling centres. Now you can maximise the use of this space: party room by day, karaoke suite by night.

Many venues are diversifying their activities offer, adding in concepts such as smart darts, duckpin social and shuffleboard. However, karaoke is unique amongst these additional activities as it can be used to give an existing room a double use – giving you the opportunity to gain additional revenue from a space which might otherwise be empty. This increasing of yield from a space already used at different times of the day, without adding significant operational costs, is a fantastic way to boost your bottom-line profit.

Expanding your offering is also a great way to increase customer dwell time, which in turn increases F&B spend. Remember than when securing the booking, you should build in a break between the bowling and the other activity, providing the ideal slot for a drink and a snack.

So, whether you’re looking to make better use of your party room or just diversifying your offering the addition of a karaoke system is a great option.

There are multiple suppliers of karaoke systems but one which is already performing well within several bowling centres is Singa Karaoke. The Singa Karaoke system is a browser-based software so can be adapted to suit most room sizes and offers performers a library of over 80,000 songs. You’ll need hardware such as iPad, wireless microphones, digital microphone mixer and all necessary accessories (but Singa can help you out with these if needed).  Singa is a simple to use entertainment solution which is regularly updated, managed online and can easily be controlled by the guests via the in-room interface.
