The Pacific Northwest has long been the epicenter of cool – especially when it comes to music. The 90’s babies know that some of the best sounds have come out of Portland, Oregon. And the legacy of free-spirited fun continues to this day.

If you’re lucky enough to get to spend some time in Portland’s bustling downtown core, or you’re willing to make a special pilgrimage for any old reason, there are some venues you MUST check out. Here are 5 of the best karaoke bars and rooms in Portland.

The top NYC karaoke bars and rooms in San Diego

1. Voicebox Karaoke

Service with a smile plus, a ton of other perks Voicebox takes karaoke very seriously. Which is probably why it’s number one on our list. Less of a bar space and more of a dedicated karaoke venue, Voicebox offers professional-grade singalong setups for individuals and groups looking to release their inhibitions and sing it out. Featuring a friendly staff, a solid food and drinks menu, and thousands of songs to choose from, it’s the ultimate destination for letting down that hair.

Offering two awesome locations, Portland northwest and Portland southeast, Voicebox is perfect for team outings, birthdays, work events, bachelor/ette parties, or just any old excuse to head out and sing for the fun of it.

2. Baby Ketten Klub

Not sure what the vibe is tonight… but you know that karaoke is definitely on the menu? Baby Ketten Klub offers a range of unique private karaoke rooms (like the 70’s room, decked out in soft retro leather; or the 80’s room, featuring sleek décor and neon prints) to suit any occasion.

Best of all, this Powell Park hotspot is open every day, and offers karaoke (private and public) every night. Featuring a full bar with 12 beers on tap, a killer cocktail lineup, a vegan food menu and, most importantly, an extensive song catalogue, Baby Ketten Klub is the cat's meow.

3. The Alibi Tiki Lounge

Is there anything better than karaoke performed in a tiki-themed lounge, under the watchful eyes of statues of hula dancers? If a beachside oasis is the vibe you’re looking for on your next evening out, then beachside oasis vibes are what you’re going to get at The Alibi, a campy dive bar in the Overlook neighborhood. Seriously, come for the crazy good drinks served in out-of-this-world vessels or a hollowed-out pineapple and stay for the songs.

Open from 11:30 am to 2:30 am every day (and featuring karaoke EVERY night at 8pm), a trip to The Alibi means a trip to a faraway time and place, where you can sample tropical tasties and sing your lungs out with a flaming cocktail in-hand. Other Polynesian-inspired delicacies can be found on the hearty food menu.

4. HallwayPDX

Modelled after the infamous bar from “The Shining”, this Portland staple hits all the right notes when it comes to doing camp and kitsch: a themed watering hole AND karaoke?! Amazing! HallwayPDX can accommodate private singing sessions for you and fifty friends or you can even rent out the entire bar for the evening if you’re so inclined.

But it’s also just a great hangout during regular hours (open Tuesday to Saturday), with a song catalogue of over 50,000 titles, shots and curiously crafted cocktails (served in mason jars, in true Oregon form), a menu of wieners and sausages, and a truly inviting atmosphere. When it comes to family-owned dive bars with heart and soul, HallwayPDX stands out from the crowd.

5. Suki’s Karaoke & Sports Bar

Prior to becoming a beloved local karaoke go-to, Suki’s was an equally beloved piano bar and when drinks are flowing and the piano is playing, why not open the floor and encourage patrons to sing along?

With two unique locations (one on Portland’s westside, the other on the eastside), the Suki name is synonymous in town with fun and it has been for nearly 20 years.

Featuring karaoke seven nights a week at both locations (including drag-aoke Sundays at westside), Suki’s not only provides the music, but an excellent and eclectic Korean-inspired menu of eats, craft beers, a massive patio, trivia nights and amazing cocktails. And the vibe is always right it’s the epitome of the friendly, neighborhood karaoke sports bar.
