There’s nothing like the feeling of taking to the stage, grasping the microphone and showing Beyoncé how Crazy in Love is supposed to be done, backed by nothing more than a little liquid courage and a sea of strangers.

It’s a well-known fact that a night out isn’t really complete until the whole party’s braved the stage at one of these key karaoke spots in Fortitude Valley.

The Royal George

Everyone’s familiar with The RG’s famous beer garden that lights up Brunswick Street Mall with live music every day of the week, but did you know that the real show goes down in the Corner Lounge every Wednesday night? Turn hump-day into pump-it-day with karaoke from 8pm, and prove that you can out-perform any professional with a playbook of ‘80s and ‘90s hits. Lounge back and enjoy the show in the Corner Lounge’s comfy, modern setting or hit the dance floor and show these amateurs the love that they deserve.

The Wickham

Saturday night’s alright at The Wickham, especially when the boisterous boys from Backstage Karaoke roll into town. The last Saturday of every month sees the Wickham’s Corner Bar play host to Kinky Karaoke; an all singing, all dancing revue of show tunes, power ballads and pop hits starring you and a chorus of slightly too-tipsy friends. The fun is free for everyone, kicking off at 8pm and ending when everyone’s had a go at Wonderwall.  

The Palace Lounge

A revolutionary addition to Brisbane’s party scene, The Palace Lounge offers a new way to play in the heart of Chinatown. Be blown away by the sophisticated style of their ten private rooms all featuring an entertainment system, lighting systems, disco ball and (most importantly) karaoke machines! Performing to friends is always a great time, but the true karaoke experience isn’t complete without an audience, and Palace Lounge is more than happy to provide. Thursday is karaoke night in the Lounge Bar from 8pm, where $20 buys full access to this spectacle of social singing complete with a complimentary drink and snack.

There’s no finer way to feel like the super-star that you always knew you were!
