What is it? A delicious Asian food market featuring an outdoor bar, tiny bodega and record store. Somehow, they managed to fit a private karaoke room in there too.

When to go? 1-800-Lucky offers karaoke seven days a week—but you’ll have to book in advance because the venue only has a single room. Luckily it’s easy to do online. Rates range from $7 to $15 per hour and bottle service packages are available too if you need some courage to go for those high notes.

  • Bars
  • Dive bars
  • Wynwood
  • price 2 of 4

What is it? An eclectic Wynwood watering hole with everything you need: a solid happy hour, cold drinks, air conditioning and fun programming nearly every night of the week, including karaoke.

When to go? Let’s Sang 2.0 goes down every Monday from 9pm to midnight, bringing out a solid mix of industry workers and weekend stragglers to Gramps’ outdoor stage. Host Oly Virago’s incomparable catalog of tunes runs the gamut, from Fleetwood Mac to Rosalía.

What is it? Jamboree Lounge is a nondescript, divey little gay bar in MiMo. It’s dark inside, with a familiar neighborhood atmosphere and lots of frisky programming throughout the week. 

When to go? Sundays at 8pm, when host David Ochoa and DJ Lannier Alvarez set the stage for a fierce karaoke battle, the winner of which earns him or herself a free bottle.

  • Restaurants
  • Allapattah
  • price 2 of 4

What is it? Nestled on the edge of Allapattah, grungy rock bar Las Rosas blends right into the industrial vibes of its block, featuring multiple rooms, an outdoor patio and a stage for hosting performers and quirky events all week.

When to go? Every Sunday (except the last Sunday of the month) from 9pm to 2am, the bar plays host to AJ's KTV, a free multimedia karaoke experience that incorporates music videos and trippy visuals.

What is it? A family-friendly karaoke joint perfect for birthday parties or other low-key celebrations. Room rates are $40 to $90 per hour and the food menu includes Asian dumplings, dim sum and more.

When to go? La Shangrila is open daily from 6pm to 3am so, really, whenever the heck you want. You’ll probably want to reserve a room in advance though, just in case.

What is it? Located in the lobby of the hip Hotel Gaythering, it’s like karaoke night at your best friend’s house–if your bestie were Miami drag queen Karla Croqueta and your friend’s house were a gay bar in Miami Beach. 

When to go? Mondays starting at 8pm, take advantage of $3 Coronas and $5 house margaritas and prepare to have a gay old time.
