Everyone’s voice deserves to be heard, especially when it comes to karaoke. In Miami, there’s somewhere to sing for a crowd nearly every night of the week—and no shortage of situations, either. You can take the stage at a packed karaoke bar, sing from within the audience or take a quick moment to belt it out from the privacy and comfort of a karaoke-themed bathroom. (More on that later). 

As a self-proclaimed “Cher-aoke” star, I’ve sung “Believe” at many of these venues (more times than I’d care to admit) and can guarantee that each humble “stage” is a damn good time. Start warming up those vocal chords and summon the most lyrical among your pals because the best karaoke bars and karaoke nights in Miami are ready to hear you sing.

Mondays 8pm–midnight

There’s no karaoke like LGBTQIA karaoke, and South Beach’s favorite gayborhood bar is the place to sing and be sung to on Monday nights. Blame Blamie Forret for your good time, as the hotel’s resident MC and comedian fires up the audience with jokes and sass—on karaoke, trivia and bingo nights, too.

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 10pm–3am

This nautical dive is Miami’s OG place to karaoke and a bar that should be on every local’s bucket list. For over three decades, diehard locals have been singing diehard tunes at this cash-only establishment on Tuesdays (after trivia), Thursdays and Saturdays. In fact it’s such a staple, nothing has ever stopped it from taking place, not even New Year’s Eve.

Thursdays 8pm–close; private karaoke room every night

CityPlace Doral does get lit on a weeknight, especially at King’s Dining and Entertainment on Thursdays. With a catalog of 60,000 plus songs, even the shyest performers will find something to sing. Best of all, there’s a private karaoke room in the back, so you and 20 of your biggest fans can book it out for private performances. And if you happen to have made it big, you can even book out the whole space for a major karaoke rager.

Wednesdays 9pm–close

There's no feeling quite like getting weird at the beard and karaoke here has got a purely local beat. On Wednesdays, amateur singers take the stage at this neighborhood brewery just off of Bird Road, while fawning audience members sing along or duck outside when the vibratos get a little too erratic.

Thursdays 9pm–late

One of Miami’s best late-night karaoke spots can be found deep in West Kendall, where you can get a pint of beer, a pizza and a side of sing-along tunes. Every Thursday, people wind up dancing at this brew pub and pizzeria—and, as the team there says, “All it takes is one Bad Bunny or Marc Anthony song and it’s overrrr!” Best of all, there are usually four mics on deck, so no one has to share when your inner Posh Spice comes out.

Nightly

America’s favorite karaoke song has its very own bar in Brickell, and it’s the only stage in the city where patrons can sing, drink, and dance every night of the week. With over 300,000 tracks to choose from, even your shyest friend can’t get away with the excuse that they don’t know anything to sing. Need a little liquid courage to get up on stage? Ladies drink free on Wednesdays and the entire menu is 50 percent off from 6 to 8pm every day.

Thursdays 11pm–3am

This beloved Grove (and, in recent years, very groovy) dive hosts late-night karaoke on Thursdays, an evening that’s no longer just reserved for the undergrads. Pop in for pitchers and off-pitched tunes, then duck out on Fuller Street when your eardrums need a break.

Thursdays 9pm 1am

This brewery just off of the Palmetto Expressway hosts karaoke on Thursdays led by Kara-O-King, one of South Florida’s lead providers. Sample the brewery’s beloved IPAs while also sampling hundreds of sing-a-longs—or as many as your voice and ears can take. 4178 SW 74th Ct

11. Dom’s

Thursdays 9pm–close

Brickellite’s know that when Thursday rolls around, they roll into Dom’s. Well-dressed sopranos sit along booths and the bars waiting to belt out Bon Jovi or vogue to Madonna, before quenching their vocal chords with a craft cocktail and a pizza from D.C. Pie Co. Oh, and there’s no need for a stage here; performers sing shoulder to shoulder with the crowd for a truly immersive experience. 1010 Brickell Ave

Thursdays 9pm–close 

Locals in SoBe flock to this quaint cocktail bar in Sunset Harbour on Thursday nights for karaoke filled with good vibes (and vibrato) after downing pizza at Lucali next door. It’s cool, casual and chill—and also the best place to down a dirty martini before delivering a five-star(ish) performance. At least that’s how you’ll feel, anyway. 

Thursdays–Sundays open–close 

Whether you have four friends or 200, there’s space for you at PlugIN Karaoke. There are 18 different karaoke rooms—yes, 18!—where you’re free to sing your heart out at the decibel of your dreams. Here, you have the choice of renting spaces out by the hour ($13 per person, per hour) or with a food and bev package, which is great for special occasions. (Plus, the birthday star gets to sing for free.) 801 Silks Run, Hallandale Beach

Monthly on the last Friday 9pm–2am

Does the thought of another Spice Girls or Backstreet Boys cover make you want to gag? Is The Cure and Joy Division more your jam? Miami’s goth scene has been having a moment, especially on the last Friday of every month when Hexed Miami hosts karaoke at Bar Nancy. The selection here is decidedly underground: goth, industrial and new wave only, promising everything from the classics to the more obscure.

Tuesdays 10pm–close

Nightlife in South Miami is a bit of a dud, however Bougie’s is among the exceptions. Karaoke takes place on Tuesdays here, so you can get cheap beers ($3.50 for Miller Light and Yuengling) and audio thrills—all before the middle of the week.
