There’s something cathartic about karaoke. Perhaps it’s the vulnerability of sharing your shaky rendition of Alanis Morrisette’s “Ironic,” or hearing your loved ones or coworkers really belt out a Johnny Cash song, or the drinking. Whatever the case, here is a guide to some of the best karaoke places in Vegas where you can also get something to eat, from small appetizers to full dinners, because you’re going to be hungry after singing all night long.Read More
11 Karaoke Bars for a Night Out in Las Vegas
Sing your heart out and fill your belly at these 11 karaoke spots
Cat's Meow Las Vegas
Located in Neonopolis on Fremont Street, Cat’s Meow claims to be “the best karaoke bar in
Las Vegas the world.” It’s recommended to pick your song as soon as you arrive, as there can be hours-long waits to sing between guests and staff performances: it’s part-karaoke bar, part-nightclub and live entertainment. Of course, the decor is floor-to-ceiling cheetah print and neon.
Reserve a private room just for your party and use an app to search through songs — rather than a traditional bulky song book. You won’t find any food here but the bar has a solid selection of beer and cocktails, plus bottle service. Also located in Chinatown.
Another establishment dive bar with an iconic karaoke night, Dino’s Lounge sits near the Strat on Las Vegas Boulevard and has for 60 years: its anniversary is 2022. The drinks are cheaper than what you’ll find on the Strip, and the environment is laid back and casual, with a bit of cigarette smoke. Try karaoke on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 10 p.m.—as its website states, “Don’t just read about us, come on in.”
Hawaiian-themed restaurant and bar Aloha Kitchen opened in 1998 and now has four locations across the Las Vegas Valley. Check out the karaoke lounge, open every night at 8 p.m. only at the Decatur and Sahara location, where you can sing with a two-drink minimum. It’s a low-pressure atmosphere to imbibe or have some Hawaiian food, like the kalbi combo with ribs or the oxtail soup.
A reliable private room option in Chinatown that serves wine, beer, soju, and a full menu from Q Bistro, which is in the same building. Try the Korean fried chicken fondue with corn cheese, or the potato bacon pizza, while you sing! Visit from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day, and check the website to see the happy hour specials. If you have a larger group or are going at a peak weekend hour, make a reservation before you go.
Crown & Anchor British Pub
Sing karaoke on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at this British-themed pub near UNLV, and have some beans on toast while you’re at it. You can also watch hockey, football, and American football, attend a pub quiz competition, or dine on all-you-can-eat fish & chips on Mondays after 5 p.m. Also located near UNLV, with karaoke Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10 p.m.
This Las Vegas staple since 1966, located on Maryland off-Strip, was a frequent haunt of entertainers like Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, and mob members like Frank Cullotta. Enjoy the iconic velvet wallpaper over drinks from its full bar, and tacos from the taco truck outside. Aside from karaoke on Fridays through Mondays from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., it hosts open mics, comedy, and other musical events throughout the week.
Kamu Ultra Karaoke
For a truly glamorous Las Vegas Strip experience, spend some time (and dollars) at Kamu Ultra Karaoke in the Venetian Resort. Reserve one of the 40, distinctly decorated private suites, like the Galaxy or Dragonball suites. Bottle service of varying levels of luxury is available, but you can also order drinks separately. And it offers an impressive menu: try the chef’s special sashimi or kalbi tacos. Call two days in advance and you can have balloons, flowers, and cake decorations delivered for a birthday.

Ellis Island Casino & Brewery
This unpretentious lounge located in the Ellis Island Casino is another well-known Vegas karaoke spot. While you wait, you can try your luck at the blackjack table or grab a beer and BBQ flatbread from the Front Yard restaurant in the casino. Sing on Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., or Friday and Saturday from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
If you want to camp out in a private karaoke room all night long, go check out GoGo Karaoke. Order from its full menu with all kinds of Korean and American eats, and sip an alcoholic (wine, beer, soju) or non-alcoholic beverage. Rooms are available for up to 30 people, and you can stop by from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day. Try the KBBQ wings or an entree like the kimchi pancake or spicy chicken with rice.
FreeZone is an LBGTQ nightclub and bar that opened in 1996 in the Historic “Fruitloop” — the colloquial name for the cluster of LGBTQ bars on Naples Street near UNLV. You can dance, drink, and sing on Mondays at 10 p.m. until everyone wants to go home. When you get tired, fuel yourself with some tacos and carne asada fries from Sin City Tacos inside FreeZone.

Gold Mine Tavern
If you’re on Water Street looking for a divey, chill joint, check out the oldest bar in Henderson, Gold Mine Tavern. Drop in for karaoke on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m., live music every weekend, and happy hour every day at 3 p.m. Most nights there’s a taco truck just outside the premises.
