Even if it’s a weeknight, chances are that someone is belting out “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey somewhere in Detroit. Not south Detroit, mind you. Here’s where to go if you could use a drink and and a few minutes to pour your soul into a mic.

Mutiny Bar:

Although it is a relative newcomer to Detroit’s bar scene, Mutiny Bar has made a name for itself with expertly crafted tiki drinks and a charming tropical atmosphere. Every Thursday night, emcee Shantasy Island brings in a songbook of more than 28,000 tracks for Mutiny’s crowd to choose from.

Checker Bar:

Checker Bar is one of Detroit’s most famous joints for burgers and boasts a huge arcade. But come every Thursday night, it also becomes a karaoke spot, thanks to emcee Robby Rob. You’ve got some open floor in front of you when you go up to perform, so you never know, you might get a bunch of folks throwing down some dance moves.

124 Cadillac Square, Detroit, MI 48226

Opyum Lounge:

Run by Matriarch Music and Entertainment, Wednesday night karaoke at Opyum Lounge is lit. By lit, we mean the lighting of the entire lounge turns into a music visualizer for each singer’s performance. We also mean you could get a crowd on the dance floor to party.

3rd Street Bar:

Robby Rob is at it again, this time at one of Wayne State University’s go-to bars. Sit down to drinks, a menu of delicious sliders (courtesy of Nack’s), and experience a weekend atmosphere…on a Tuesday. 3rd Street’s expansive patio is also perfect for a quiet conversation amidst all the chaos indoors.

Bert’s Marketplace:

Bert’s Entertainment Complex has outdoor karaoke and dancing starting as early as 10 a.m. on Saturday morning. No worries, though, it lasts until 8 p.m. This huge venue is perfect for singers who like open-air performances and the sweet smells of grilled fare from the nearby soul food place.

2727 Russell St, Detroit, MI 48207

Sweet Soul Bistro:

Known for its comfort food, this eatery is a neighborhood favorite by day, and a mini-performance hall come each Monday night with the help of Matriarch Music and Entertainment. The bistro also has the blood of a dance club running through its veins afterhours throughout the week – karaoke night is no exception. Bring an appetite and your pipes.

Delux Lounge:

This place is a swanky club through and through, and that doesn’t change on Wednesday night. People will tear up the floor and party. What does change on Wednesday nights is the music selection provided by brave members of the crowd, partly thanks to emcee Robby Rob.

350 Monroe Ave, Detroit, MI 48226

So many words. 😮 #karaoke
