Tucked away in a covered parking lot lies Ego's, a popular karaoke dive bar with a single stage. Ego's has won several awards as the best karaoke spot in town, and the crowd is generally happy nad heckler-free. Those interested in taking the stage should arrive early, as the wait to sing can be as long as two hours on crowded nights.
The Common Interest has private rooms for parties of friends in addition to its main stage. Karaoke starts at 8 pm most nights, Friday being the exception when it kicks off at 6 pm.
This venue features nine private rooms which fit parties of eight, 15, or 20. It is open later than most places, until 4 am during the week and 5 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
While there is no permanent public karaoke at the Highball, the venue boasts seven themed private rooms available on a reservation basis. Room themes range from zombie fantasy and black metal to Super Mario and Jem (who is truly outrageous).
Shenanigans is a bar with something different going on every night of the month. Karaoke is one of the few consistent features, with each night hosted by a different DJ.
Chinatown Downtown sits between Congress Ave and Colorado St, serving a full dinner menu (and full bar) to karaoke singers. On Karaoke nights, the doors stay open until 2 am.
If you're looking to pair karaoke with sushi, you're in luck. Karaoke at DK Sushi Restaurant starts around 7:30 to 7:45 pm. Making a same day reservation is usually wise, as the time slots tend to fill up quickly.View full experience
