For more than 30 years, karaoke has been a popular way for people of all ages and backgrounds to unwind and have some fun. If you're looking for a great spot around the Twin Cities to sing a song or two, you don't need to look for long because this area has many venues to choose from. Here are five of our favorite karaoke joints that are nearby.

1. Otter's Saloon
617 Central Ave SE
Minneapolis, MN 55414

With karaoke every night of the week (and of the year, in fact), this bar that doesn't take a night off really knows how to help patrons have a good time. They also get bonus points for their awesome nightly drink specials, and for the fact that their entire song list is available online. That means you can prepare and practice before you go!

2. Joe & Stan's Bar
949 7th St W
Saint Paul, MN 55102

This beloved “dive bar” does karaoke every Saturday night from 9:30 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. Arrive earlier in the evening to make sure you get some time to shine. Also, if you want to warm up for karaoke night, try visiting on a Friday when their jukebox is free for the playing. 

3. Grumpy's Bar & Grill
2 locations with karaoke nights!
2801 Snelling Avenue North
Roseville, MN 55113
1111 Washington Avenue South,
Minneapolis, MN 55415

With delicious food and good drink specials, it's no wonder Grumpy's is a popular spot. Their downtown location has karaoke on Thursday nights from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m., accompanied by $2.50 tallboys to help you overcome any stage fright. The Roseville location invites you to sing along to your favorite songs on Tuesdays from 10 p.m. until close, and they help you get ready to rock the microphone with 2-for-1 drinks until midnight. 

4. Vegas Lounge
965 Central Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413

Another popular spot that has karaoke every night of the week. The wait to sing is notoriously long here, but worth it. Just plan ahead and accept that you'll be in Vegas for the night. 

5. Viking Lounge
1630 S Broadway
Rochester, MN 55904

A sports bar and grill located in a hotel's lounge, this place gets quite the crowd for their karaoke nights each Wednesday — Saturday from 9 p.m. until closing time. Make sure to enjoy their patio bar area with fire pit tables for a relaxing breather outside.
