Music for everyone-A A +A
Saturday, February 1, 2014
A LARGE room done completely in matte black with chandeliers, leather couches and muted silver-painted doors. Is it the lobby of a modern hotel?
The receiving area of someone’s plush home? Surprise: This chic space with modern rococo interior design is MusicOne Family KTV.
The owners specifically wanted to give Cebuanos something different from the expected KTV place, and it’s not just the furniture and black-and-silver color motif. The rooms can be used not just for karaoke, but also for playing Kinect and watching movies, for hours of enjoyment with family or friends.
Rather than watching movies at home or at the cinema, MusicOne offers the interesting option of watching DVD’s in one of their rooms. Here, it’s okay to scream with friends while watching a scary movie, rather than irritating the family or the neighbors if watching at home. Choose from a collection of hundreds of original DVD’s, with new ones added every month.
Peak hours on Fridays and Saturdays may require some waiting, but most patrons don’t mind with the spacious reception area. Pass the time leisurely by skimming through current magazines, watching a movie on the large screen TV, or for the un-shy, playing Kinect or even start singing while waiting for a private room.
MusicOne attracts a mixed clientele of call center employees from the surrounding offices, groups of friends, families, and people on dates. With prior arrangements, the rooms can be rented out for birthdays, children’s parties, or even corporate presentations.
Ten deluxe rooms on the first floor can accommodate six to eight people, while five VIP rooms on the second floor can fit 10 to 12 persons. Rent a room for karaoke good for three hours to get a fully consumable tab on food and beverages. For two hours or less, the rent is not consumable.
Customers are pleasantly surprised that the rates are affordable despite the lush interiors and high-tech amenities, which includes a new KTV system updated every month, and wide-screen Panasonic and Samsung TV’s.
Acoustic fiber boards soundproof each room, so that you can hear your own singing or movie, and not the next room’s. For added convenience, there is a call button in case customers need a waiter. A full list of hot food and pica-pica plus a well-stocked bar keeps customers energized for hours of singing, dancing and enjoying movies.
With its upscale feel, modern amenities and reasonable prices, MusicOne offers wholesome fun for everyone. MusicOne Family KTV is located at the second floor of The Walk, IT Park and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
