There aren’t many places that do karaoke with a live band, much less one that specializes in heavy metal, but that’s why 10 High Club exists. Located in the dark, smoky, and windowless basement of Darkhorse Tavern in the Highlands, it’s exactly the kind of atmosphere you want when you’re singing Metallica in front of 50 strangers. They only have one bar for the whole room, so getting a drink can sometimes be a challenge, but at least you can lip sync to “Enter Sandman” while you wait.
