Who doesn’t love a great karaoke session with friends? Whether you are the next Mariah Carey or Kim Kardashian, karaoke has no room to discriminate. Plus, it’s nice to try something other than a typical bar or club on a night out. Philadelphia offers plenty of karaoke options no matter where you live, but here are a few of our trusted options.

Yakitori Boy – 211 N. 11th Street

Karaoke is a Japanese import to the US so, it makes sense that one of the most popular karaoke stops in Philly is Yakitori Boy, an authentic izakaya (Japanese version of a pub). Not only is there a karaoke lounge, but Yakitori Boy offers private karaoke rooms as well for larger groups and/or shyer guests.

McGillin’s Olde Ale House – 1310 Drury Street

The oldest continuously operating tavern in Philadelphia features karaoke nights every Wednesday and Sunday nights along with its long list of local and regional beers on tap.

Tango – 1021 Arch Street 

You can rock out to karaoke in this Pan-Asian restaurant’s trendy ambiance. Tango has an upstairs room dedicated to karaoke and a playlist you can access on your electronic device to see what songs are available or to make requests.

Locust Bar – 235 S. 10th Street
