Karaoke nights are the perfect way to spend time with friends while enjoying great food and drinks — and maybe laughing along to your wannabe pop star efforts. The Northern Virginia area is full of exciting venues, from Korean-style clubs that allow you to book private rooms for the evening, to pubs that test your ability to hold it together in the limelight of a crowd. No matter your style, there is a karaoke place perfect for you and your friends to create a memorable evening out on the town. Here are some local favorites to consider the next time you feel the need to break out into song.
Live your dreams of international superstardom at the brand new KPop Karaoke, which features a large mix of songs in Korean, English, Tagalog, Thai, Chinese, and Japanese for your night out. Book an individual room all to yourselves and crank up the sound on the updated sound systems to kick things off. Prices start at $40 per hour, and rooms can hold about eight people comfortably, making it easy to split the tab for a group outing. If you get hungry mid-performance, food and drinks are just a call button away.
Patriots Pub and Grill
On Friday and Saturday nights, Patriots Pub and Grill transforms into a karaoke hotspot. The pub recently relocated to a new building featuring a larger bar and happy hour space, so bring the group and get ready to sing your hearts out. Specialty pizzas, burgers, and more are available, and the pub offers a wide selection of beer and other beverages. On Friday nights, you can fuel your musical evening with the all-day $8 pizza special.
Don’t let the name fool you — Lulu Cafe has a complete bar in addition to its open lounge and individual rooms, or noraebang.
