You know you want to.

View as Map

Karaoke is a very divisive activity: For a certain sect of the population, singing in front of a crowd of strangers is a nightmarish proposal. For others, though, the chance to belt out their best Amy Winehouse rendition for a (mostly) willing audience is a dream come true, particularly when a few drinks are involved. If you happen to fall into the latter camp, here are Dallas's best karaoke destinations to check out next time you're feeling saucy.

Family Karaoke

Copy Link
Koreatown is full of karaoke bars, and this is one of the best. Private rooms come equipped not only with comfy couches and TVs, but also colorful lights and tambourines, because of course. A couple rounds of fruity soju in flavors like lychee or pineapple is a must to get those vocal cords loosened up, whether you're singing Britney or taking on K-pop hits. Soak up the booze with ramen, shrimp tempura, steamed dumplings, or egg rolls. [Photo: Family Karaoke/Facebook]

Zeller Zone Karaoke

There's no English sign to mark Zeller Zone, so you'd better know what you're looking for. Once you make it inside, you'll find private rooms stocked with high-quality speakers, gigantic song binders full of Korean and American hits, and bartenders who are more than happy to pour you round after round of beer or soju.

One Nostalgia Tavern

Karaoke goes down every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at this delighfully divey bar at Abrams and Skillman that attracts a diverse crowd. Drinks are cheap and stiff, and hey, if the song selection sucks you can always turn your attention to shuffleboard or pool. [Photo: One Nostalgia Tavern/Facebook]

Arcade Bar

Every Thursday and Saturday at 10 p.m. it's time for karaoke with Dan at this laid-back dive adjacent to the historic Lakewood Theater. The regulars are (generally) as friendly as the regulars, meaning they might even applaud following your epic rendition of "Tiny Dancer." [Photo: Lakewood Theater/Facebook]

Twilite Lounge

Copy Link
One of the city's most beloved (and ridiculous) karaoke nights, Good Luck Karaoke with always-in-character DJ Hammertimez, Oliver Peck (of Elm Street Tattoo fame), and George Quartz used to reside at the Double Wide, but now you'll find it at this chill Deep Ellum bar on Thursday nights — which is a very good thing, because they've got tasty French 75s and frozen Irish coffees.

The Goat

The Goat is Dallas's consummate dive bar where you can almost always find people drinking at the bright and early hour of 8 a.m. Karaoke doesn't happen till after nightfall, though: Wednesdays (with Snake) and Sundays (with DJ Hammertimez of Good Luck Karaoke fame).

Dan the karaoke man leads the festivities here every Friday night starting at 9 p.m. If you're a karaoke first-timer, this might be a good place to start: Drinks are cheap and the crowd is supportive, even if your version of Prince's "Pussy Control" leaves something to be desired.

Norazo Karaoke

Copy Link
This Koreatown karaoke staple is open until 4 a.m. on the weekends and has three different room sizes to choose from, plus cocktails, beer, soju, chicken wings, and other Korean fare. Best of all, if you buy enough food and booze, you can stay as long as you want and you only have to pay for the first hour of the room rate. [Photo: Norazo Karaoke]

San Francisco Rose

Copy Link
If you're one of those people who actually takes karaoke semi-seriously (rather than just somebody who likes to belt out Lady Gaga when you get drunk — though those people are welcome too), this Lower Greenville stalwart is where you want to be every Wednesday, Friday, and/or Saturday night at 9 p.m. If all else fails, there's always giant Jenga and some pretty decent pizza. [Photo: San Francisco Rose]

Adair's Saloon

If you're missing karaoke mistress Carmen, formerly of The Goat, here's where you'll find her Sunday nights starting at 9 p.m. Where else are you going to sing karaoke backed with a live band and find a mighty fine burger? [Photo: Adair's/Facebook]
