Karaoke places for kids

1. Nemo NYC

The fun isn't reserved for adults at Nemo's. The kid-friendly party package, which hosts up to 20 children, is a way for your budding singer to gather his or her closest friends for an epic sing-along celebration. Not only will attendees master the lyrics of their favorite songs, but they'll be able to recharge with snacks such as pizza, fries or chicken nuggets. The balloons will add extra pizzazz to the jam session. Greenwich Village (

2. Chorus

The hotspot for adults opens its doors to kiddies during the day for a fun jam session that'll make them feel like they're contestants on The Voice. From 1–7pm on Monday through Saturday, pint-sized singers can test out their vocal chops at Chorus. They will get a kick out of the ultra-modern, sci-fi inspired rooms. If you're thinking of celebrating your kiddo's next birthday in style, this is the perfect place to do so. Learn more here.

3. Karaoke Duet

For those karaoke pros who want to wow their audiences, head online to check out Duet's playlist and master tunes before arriving at the venue. You're guaranteed success with that approach! Though the location is known to attract an older audience thanks to a prolific drink menu, Duet does offer kid-friendly fun for youngsters who want to give their vocal chords a challenge. There are certain hours—Thursday–Sundays from 12am–closing and Fridays, Saturdays and holiday eves from 8pm onward—where no one under 21 is allowed inside, so check the times before venturing out.

4. Karaoke St. Mark's

If your thinking about renting out a room—for up to 50 of your closest friends or relatives—head to St. Mark's Karaoke. You're guaranteed a fun night out jamming to the best tunes (but you'll probably have a long line of party-goers waiting to sing). Children are only permitted within the private party rooms of the venue. Noho (


5. Iggy's NYC

For a megawatt party, divas and divos in-training can light up the stage in the back room of this UES lounge and grill, should mom and dad want to rent out the venue for a private bash. However, note that during the evenings, those under 21 are not permitted. Upper East Side (
