Later this year, Portland-based karaoke bar Voicebox will open its first Texas outpost in Fort Worth.
The mini-chain will take over a 3,900 square foot space in Fort Worth’s Crockett Row at West 7th development, according to a press release, and will offer eight private karaoke “suites” in which partiers can belt their favorite tunes with a group while drinking cocktails. Each suite is equipped with two TVs, microphones, and perhaps most importantly, a sound and lighting system that boasts different “lighting moods” and a catalog of more than 70,000 songs. There will also be tambourines.
Based in Portland, Voicebox currently operates three outposts across the country, including two Oregon locations and another in Denver. The concept borrows from traditional Korean karaoke bars, which typically boast similar private suites, booze service, and snacks.
Because karaoke pairs best with a little liquid courage, Voicebox also serves a menu of infused sake, beer, wine, and music-themed cocktails like the Veruca Salt (hibiscus-infused tequila, grapefruit juice, lime) cocktail available at its Denver location, though each outpost’s cocktail menu is slightly different. As far as the food is concerned, look forward to casual eats like chicken wings, hummus or spinach dip served with pita, and parmesan-garlic tater tots.
Voicebox is set to make its debut in Fort Worth sometime this fall. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
