While El Charrito has been one of downtown's classic dives since it opened five decades ago, the spot made a comeback a few years ago with new owners. Sure, it's a great bar for cheap drinks, but it's also one of the few places you'll find karaoke on the weekends in the Ballpark Neighborhood. Fridays and Saturday nights usually start off fairly tame, but by 11 p.m. or so, the place is jumping.
While there are a countless number of places to do karaoke around town, we've picked ten best spots to conjure your inner crooner. Some of these places cater to singers every night of the week, while others only do karaoke on specific nights. Page down to see which spots made the list. Did your favorite make the cut? Did we leave out your favorite haunt? Let us know. All photos by Christopher Morgan for Westword.
