Where to find karaoke in Austin

Austinites are known as a musical bunch. Homegrown artists have grown to become national sensations and have attracted many more musically inclined folks to the city. Most people have to hold down a day job to pay the bills, but that doesn’t mean they can’t sing a tune in front of a crowd from time to time.

There are many options around Austin for those looking to sing some karaoke in front of friends or strangers. Here is a list of popular karaoke spots around the city, with the nights each venue opens its microphone to the karaoke singing public.
