Five of South Florida's Best Karaoke Bars
Pick a song, be a star.
This week's New Times feature story explores the thriving karaoke scene in Broward and Palm Beach counties. If you're looking for a place to channel your inner Kelly Clarkson, there's always a show somewhere -- whether you want to sing in drag, in a dimly lit dive bar, or on a stage with a live band. We can't cram all the options into one list, but here's a sampling of five (in no particular order) to inspire you.
Lake Worth. (Sunday nights) A family-oriented German bar/restaurant,
the crowd here ranges from teeny boppers to punk rockers and retirees.
No judgment here, not even if you sing disco.
Wet Willie's, West Palm Beach. (Thursday nights) Drink a fruity pink daiquiri while trying to rap like Rihanna. If you're lucky, you might spot Allan Lee, a 79-year-old star of the karaoke scene, rockin' to Ricky Martin.
