Arlene's World Famous Live Rock 'n' Roll Karaoke

Arlene's World Famous Live Rock 'n' Roll Karaoke
Bring your A-game to Arlene's—the members of the bar's house group include musicians who have performed alongside Queen, Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses. Live your rocker fantasies while you belt out songs by Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains or other staples, and be prepared to bust out your most ridiculous moves—air guitar and onstage stripping are encouraged. 95 Stanton St between Ludlow and Orchard Sts (212-358-1633). Mon 10pm; free. Fri midnight; $10.

Pulse Karaoke Lounge & Private Suites
Business-casual attire is required here, but don't let the slightly upscale vibe deter you from letting loose. You can party down at Pulse without spending a ton of cash: Songs are only a buck, the bar offers two-for-one drinks from 6 to 8pm Monday through Saturday, and private rooms can be rented for as little as $30 for two hours of unlimited singing and drinking. Plus, the extensive songbook features 60,000 tunes in four different languages (English, Spanish, Korean and Russian), and new songs are added every month. 135 W 41st St between Sixth Ave and Broadway (212-278-0090). $1 per song.

Alligator Lounge
Meet your group for a late dinner at this Williamsburg stalwart, where you can fuel up before your jam session with beer and gratis pizza. Karaoke commences in the massive back room under a spinning disco ball, and the song selections run the gamut from Lady Gaga to The Little Mermaid soundtrack. 600 Metropolitan Ave between Leonard and Lorimer Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-599-4440). Thu, Fri 9pm; free.

Baby Grand
This tiny black-and-white-walled bar can only fit about 25 people, making it the perfect venue for an intimate evening with your closest pals. Choose from the 18,000-song-strong book—'80s bangers and musical numbers are popular choices—and lead your besties in a communal sing-along. 161 Lafayette St between Howard and Grand Sts (212-219-8110). $2 per song (requires drink purchase).
