There are only so many weekends you can frequent the same local bars or leave from a night out at the club to find decorative napkins in your hair, up your sleeves, and in pockets you didn't even know you had. Why not opt for an alternative night out. Whether in Israel's party capital of Tel Aviv or down south in Be'er Sheva, the Karaoke phenomenon has hit the country from top to bottom. Embarrass yourself while singing Madonna in front of a crowd or book a private room with your friends and sing along to Disney tunes. You can even throw in some dance moves at these Karaoke bars and chains:
Me on the Mic
Your moment has finally arrived. Get ready to become a star sensation at 'Me on the Mic'. Take a break from the Holy Land and escape to a new city for an evening of singing, eating and good old fashioned fun. This Karaoke bar offers private rooms themed after select cities around the world such as New York, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Tokyo and more. Select your songs using the iPad Air 2, then Belt Broadway show tunes like the 'Hamilton' soundtrack in Time Square or sing chansons d'amour on the Pont Alexandre. The perfect place for a birthday party, work event or Thursday night out.

Every decor detail down to the electric guitars on the bathroom walls and the signs on the elevator welcoming you to 'get this party started' screams sing-along at this chain of Karaoke bars. While some Karaoke venues are more communal – set in open spaces where you sing in front of complete strangers (usually with the help of some liquid confidence) – Plugin offers a more intimate experience. The Tel Aviv complex contains eighteen private rooms of various shapes and sizes, and the other branches are not too shabby as well. Come with a group, choose from one of the uniquely designed rooms, pick the play list, adjust the lighting to fit your mood, and dive into the musical experience with your coworkers or best of friends.

Temptation - Tuesday night Karaoke
Give into the temptation this Tuesday with the Allenby establishment's weekly Karaoke night. There's nothing better to accompany Temptation bar's high-class cocktails and magical atmosphere than some drunken singing in front of an equally drunken crowd. Keep an eye out for their themed sing-along nights like the Disney vs. Musicals showdown happening now and again. If you are up for the challenge, unleash the child inside of you, and join the live feed on Temptation's Facebook page. You may not remember it in the morning, but the social media world will.
