Lipstick Lounge

This colorful restaurant and nightlife spot near Five Points holds down the karaoke game in East Nashville. Head over on the weekends for some Tex-Mex brunch and test your singing chops, too.

Even though Lonnie's was displaced from its original Printer's Alley home a few years back, it didn't move far, opening just around the corner on Church Street. Around since 1989, you never know what star musicians might show up.

Ms. Kelli's Karaoke Bar

Ms. Kelli's is now the lone karaoke bar calling Printer's Alley home. Head over pretty much any night of the week and you'll find the cavernous space packed and rowdy.

Santa's Pub

The increasing popularity of this Wedgewood-Houston dive bar has admittedly diminished its appeal, but it's still one of the better watering holes in town, offering karaoke seven nights a week.

WannaB's Karaoke Nashville

WannaB's Karaoke Bar is definitely on the high end spectrum of Nashville's karaoke scene. The bright lights draw in locals and tourists alike to try their hand at the latest country hits.

This self-proclaimed 'Best Dam Karaoke Bar in America' isn't a Nashville original, having opened another location in Indianapolis, but it's still a popular downtown hangout for hardcore karaoke enthusiasts.
