Things to do in Brisbane

The Best Places to Karaoke in Brisbane

Just like a night of unexpected karaoke brilliance, a Brisbane nightlife adventure is out of this world.

Hankering to escape the well-worn path of typical things to do in Brisbane? The city’s karaoke scene invites you to a place where inhibitions melt away, and songbirds reign supreme.

Under the veil of moonlight, there’s a world of playful energy and carefree fun. You’re not just stepping into a room or bar — you’re taking the stage. Intimate hideaways, polished lounges, and dive bars with stages showcase their unique twists on karaoke capers.

Brisbane’s international vibe makes for an endless selection of venues and songbooks. One night, you find yourself in an adorable Korean booth singing K-pop, and on another, you’re giving your best Whitney Houston impression in a themed room.

No one expects perfection. Just let go of your fears and cheer your mates on when it’s their turn. In this performance, you’re the star and the audience. Whether your voice soars with operatic flair or wobbles with endearing magnetism, it’s time to shine at karaoke in Brisbane.

Fortitude Valley

Fortitude Valley comes alive at night. It’s a neon-clad playground where Brisbane’s live music scene spills onto the streets, and an escapade awaits around every corner.

1. Blute’s Bar

Mosey on down to Blute’s Bar, a down-to-earth spot steeped in Aussie pub charm. You don’t need to be a pro to get on stage here. Just grab a cold one, and belt it out while a raucous crowd cheers you on. The neon-lit bar serves up no-frills drinks, such as lager, rum and coke, and plenty of strong bourbons.

Exposed brick, worn leather seats, and timber floors make for an old-timey, comfy, familiar pub aesthetic. Beer signs and flickering TV screens bring the nostalgia to life. It’s a place for singalongs, crowd-pleasers, and all the fun you can handle. Looking for a place to cut loose and sing your heart out? Blute’s is where it’s at.

2. Lost Souls Karaoke

In true subversive style, karaoke nights are unpredictable, so expect the unexpected. You could listen to an indie head, followed by a classic rock lover, with a Kate Bush fanatic straight after. Greaser’s menu is all about fried chicken and beer, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

9. Cono Singing Booth

Cono Singing Booth is the most adorable — and affordable — karaoke outing in Brisbane. Ponder your musical choices in the tome-like songbook, where you will find something that resonates. Comfy booths fit between two and six people.

We’re on cloud nine every time we head to Cloud 8 Karaoke. Are you serious about singing? This is your spiritual home, an all-out karaoke party in Westfield Mt Gravatt Shopping Centre.

With 14 themed rooms, it’s not a place you visit once. Bring your own food and drink, or order from one of the two partnered restaurants. Indulge in a feast as you hone your inner performer.

Are you tired of listening to your mates as they attempt to hit high notes? Maybe you’re that friend who doesn’t love karaoke as much as everyone else. No worries.
