Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We don’t want to be dramatic, but some of the dedicated karaoke bars we’ve been to in LA make us wanna barf. Cover charges, drink minimums, investment wankers letting loose after work... it's a goddamned nightmare. A refreshing alternative, in our opinion, is to do karaoke at a fun bar that is just a bar. These places are usually way less stressful, and indeed great places to encounter consensual sex partners (ahem, dates) or heck, even friends. We’ve spent a lot of time hanging out and doing karaoke in bars that are not karaoke bars, because when it’s fun, it’s fun as hell. So here are the best karaoke nights at regular bars in LA on every night of the week. Some nights even have two options—there's just that much goddamned fun to be had.
