Feeling bored with your usual going-out routine? Spice your night up with a karaoke bar! Even if you’re not the world’s best singer, you can still have a great time watching your friends belt out the lyrics to “Don’t Stop Believing.”
From private rooms to dive bars, we’ve rounded up the best karaoke bars in Austin!
Located behind a gas station, underneath an office building, in a parking garage, off South Congress (get all that?) is one of the city’s most iconic karaoke bars. This treasure of a dive bar is not big, so we recommend getting there early if you want a table. There are pool tables in the back, stage in the front, and cheap drinks all night long. Karaoke starts at 8 p.m. and the list fills up quick!
If singing in front of your friends only is more your speed, check out Austin Karaoke. This lounge-type karaoke spot features a variety of private rooms, big to small. Each room features microphones, video screens, and great sound systems to sing your heart out.
Another karaoke center where guests can rent rooms is HiTunes off Anderson Lane. The space features eight different rooms, with three different sizes to choose from. Additionally, you can bring your own food and beverages.
Though there aren’t many karaoke room at the two Punch Bowl locations in Austin, there are plenty of other things to entertain you as you wait for an open room. Both the downtown location and the one at the Domain offer classic games, video games, and bowling. Plus, the Domain location has a sweet indoor 9-hole Putt Club.
Voted one of Austin’s best karaoke spots, this bar and restaurant features karaoke seven days a week, 365 days a year. Singing on their main stage starts every night at 8 p.m., or you can reserve a small or large private room. If you work up an appetite singing, The Common Interest has plenty of bar snacks to choose from as well as tacos, burgers, and more.
If you’re looking for a true Austin dive bar, we recommend heading to Hole in the Wall. Every night they host karaoke in their back bar from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. You can even check out their music catalog before heading in here to make sure they have your perfect karaoke song.
The Highball features seven karaoke rooms with themes ranging from 8-bit wonderland to heavy metal church to the Black Lodge from “Twin Peaks.” Each room features a comprehensive and freshly updated selection of songs from all genres, a magic voice synthesizer to make your tone-deaf friends sound like a badass, and well as a dedicated server who can supply you with all the liquid courage (and snacks) needed.
