Where to karaoke?

Sing out Louise.

Judie reached out to us this week with a question about where to go for karaoke.

New-ish to the area and looking for fun bars that do karaoke - a request for a friend's upcoming birthday. I couldn't find anything on your site, but know your readers would know the scoop. We promise no Free Bird or American Pie.

OK, since Judie promised no "Free Bird," maybe we can help her out. We'll start it off. Circus Cafe in Saratoga has karaoke on Saturday nights.

Where else can Judie and company sing out?

Rocks has a great karaoke on friday nights. Washington Tavern I believe still does it on wednesday nights. Oh Bar does it on thursday nights.

Bourbon Street on Central Ave in Schenectady has karaoke Tuesday - Saturday. They have a really large book selection and often the DJ will have the most up to date songs available but might not be in the book.

Bourbon Street & Circus are my main karaoke choices. Not only are the books good to select from, the food & drink at each place is great too. Both bars have a mix of talented singers and people just looking to have fun. I will say though, often at Circus you get the Bachlorette Party trying to get in one song of Girls Just Want to Have Fun. I have yet to experience that at Bourbon Street.

Also Thursday nights at OhBar on Lark Street. But be prepared for raunchy versions of some regular songs. :)

LAX or Blessings! :)

Maxies on Wolf Road has karaoke nights-just can't remember which night.

Sid Stein is MC of the best karaoke community in Albany at Pinto and Hobbs on Washington Ave in Albany, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Bonus points during the legislative session when lawmakers make frequent appearances.

best karaoke in town is with SID!!!! Thursday or Saturday LAX, Friday at Pinto!


Center Square Pub (corner of Dove and State) has karaoke on Saturday nights.
