Be a Karaoke Star

by

The beautiful thing about karaoke is that there's no one way to succeed. Nothing pulls strangers together like an entire room joining in, pained expressions across their joyous faces, as they belt out "Don't Stop Believing." Or the guy who gets super agro on Pantera and then comes back next round to wail on Miley's "Wrecking Ball." With the focus being on the singer, the room is only as good as the clientele. Dad's (2615 Mossrock) is a perfect example, as is Sir Winston's (2522 Nacogdoches Road) and Thirsty Camel (5307 McCullough Ave.) — three different bars with three different vibes — Dad's being a lot like dad's den; wood-paneled, dimly lit and peculiar smelling, Sir Winston's and Thirsty Camel taking on a classic sports dive and black-light club vibe, respectively. Like all karaoke establishments, these three bars do what only the best bars can do; bring folks together.

See the rest of the list.
