When singing in the shower isn’t enough and you need to really break out into song before you start your own concert (flash mob and all), maybe check out a karaoke bar first and use the former as a plan B.
Thankfully, I’ve got you covered with a list of Brisbane’s best karaoke destinations where you can sing your little heart out.
Starting from just $20/hour for 1-2 people, you can belt out your favourite tunes in one of Fat Louie’s Tokyo-style karaoke rooms. With over 100,000 songs to choose from, you’ll be there for hours! Music is available in English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean & Thai.

Strike is a 3-in-1 with the option to go bowling, play laser tag, or to pick up the mic and sing that classic hit you practice in the shower! They add all the latest hits and include an impressive classic line-up of songs. Drinks can be delivered to your own private karaoke room and if you really want to go all out, you can hire a box of costumes!
