“The 10 High Club at Dark Horse Tavern in Virginia-Highland isn’t much of a secret anymore due to the popularity of Metalsome Live Band Karaoke!” –AJC


“At a Virginia-Highland dive bar, Metalsome karaoke turns everyone into a headbanger!” –Atlanta Magazine


“Top bucket list item in Atlanta.” –Thrillest


“Scream your face off at Metalsom-Dark Horse Tavern. Your friends will curse you if you let them come to Atlanta, eat a bunch of delicious food, have fantastic drinks, enjoy all the greatness of this city and everything, but forget to take them to 10 High Club for our long-running heavy metal karaoke event. The TL;DR is this: heavy metal karaoke, but with a live band. Get there early. And get some out-of-town friends who are more appreciative too, maybe.” –Thrillest

“All great rock stars have to start somewhere – so it might as well be a place where you can take on some of the most famous songs in history while backed by an accomplished live band, right?” –-FOX 5, Good Day Atlanta


“Lyft’s top bar drop-off and that tells you something about this bar and restaurant’s popularity. Dark Horse has a large U-shaped bar, two outdoor patio bars, friendly wait staff and attracts an over-21 crowd.” –Discover Atlanta
