Sing your heart out at these Vancouver Karaoke bars

Vancouver is home to a burgeoning karaoke scene that offers plenty of opportunities to sing your favourite songs. Whether you want to perform in front of a bar full of strangers or in a more intimate setting with friends, these venues will have you hitting the high notes with pride. And a lot of laughs.

Arts Club Theatre Co

Bring a crew of your friends to The Backstage Lounge at Granville Island for a truly unique karaoke experience in Vancouver. Every Tuesday, you can take centre stage with a live band backing you up. It's the ideal way to live out your lead singer fantasies, taking the favourite tunes you sing in the shower and belting them out in front of a supportive crowd.

Fortune Sound Club

147 Pender St E, Vancouver, BC V6A 1T6

You really like karaoke, but you can never find your jam in those massive stacks of laminated pages in bars. If you've been memorizing Dr. Dre lyrics while everyone else is singing pop songs, then it's time to unveil your talents at Fortune Sound Club's Hip Hop Karaoke events. Check their website for up-to-date info on the next opportunity to throw down on stage.

Mt Pleasant Legion

2655 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5T 3E7

The Royal Canadian Legion is an unlikely home for party-goers, but those in the know have been coming here for a long time for meat draws and cheap drinks. And on some nights at various Legion locations throughout the city, you can hop on stage and belt out “House of the Rising Sun” while tipping your hat to vets. (Seriously: don't wear your hat at any Legion location, as it's a sign of disrespect.)

12 Kings Pub

395 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5T 3J7

Grab a pint and get ready to challenge Sandy and Silky in a karaoke throw-down. With half a million songs at their disposal, you’re going to have to pull out every ace from your sleeve to be crowned the karaoke star. But take heart — there just may be a beer in it for you at the end. Even if you’re just there to cheer on your friends, 12 Kings has some of the best craft beer in Vancouver.

Funky Winker Beans

37 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1G4

Funky Winker Beans and its staff are proud of their humble, some might say sketchy, digs. Dubbed as “Vancouver's Hardcore Dive Bar,” every night seems like karaoke night. That's because Sundays through Thursdays are uniquely themed to attract different groups of wannabe stars. From Metal Mondays to Ladies' Night Wednesdays, you'll find an ever-changing audience to hear you perform.

Savoy Grill

571 Hamilton St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2R1

Every Sunday, the Savoy Pub hosts a karaoke night that draws a mixed crowd of young partiers and aging rockers to their Hastings Street dive. There are often insanely cheap drink specials that will make a night out in downtown Vancouver surprisingly inexpensive. Get there early to scope out the list of tunes and claim your favourite ones to sing.

Fantacity Restaurant

1133 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6E 1B5

For those who are wary of performing publicly and will only reach for Mariah Carey's high notes around friends, Fantacity is the ideal karaoke venue. Your group can book rooms by the hour and there are varying room sizes to accommodate your celebrations. Best of all, the servers will deliver your food and drinks directly to your room so you don't have to interrupt a great duet to get another beer.

Galchae Karaoke

101-5679 Imperial St, Burnaby, BC V5J 1G1

Burnaby's Galchae Karaoke is constantly expanding its English song offerings to satisfy the growing crowds of non-Asian groups. Karaoke is a huge part of various Asian cultures and visitors to Galchae will appreciate how acceptable it is to croon love songs in front of coworkers and friends. Get there early on weekends to snag a room before they're all booked up.

Whether it be your difficult in-laws who are visiting, your party animal roommate from university or your workout-obsessed brother, it’s good to have a roster of fun things to do around the city when you have visitors from out of town. These Vancouver attractions will impress even your most challenging guests. [Photo © Yellow Pages / Pages Jaunes]
