Every one of us has a deeply buried rock star in us waiting to steal the spotlight and shine in front of our peers or a group of totally wasted strangers. The thought of rocking to a groove on stage must have crossed your mind at one point or another. If you are in Miami or planning to visit this city any time soon then don’t forget to check out the karaoke scene here, it is one of the best anywhere in the world.
Without further ado, here are the top five karaoke bars of Miami
Five – Sing Sing Karaoke

Four – Titanic Brewery And Restaurant
5813 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables: 305-668-1742
Within walking distance from University of Miami, the Titanic is one of the oldest brewpub of Miami and a local favorite for karaoke enthusiasts. Don’t get fooled by the Titanic Brewery signage or the burgundy wall colors, this place boasts of special $3 shots that goes hand in hand with karaoke. It is the history of this place and the generations that have graced it that makes this pub a place to crash for the night. Moreover, being so close to the University of Miami, it experiences a regular rotation of crowd every four years.
Three – Tom’s NFL American Sports Bar & Grill
5001 NW 36th St., Miami Springs: 305-888-6022
Situated smack in the middle of golf course and airport motels in Miami Springs, Tom’s is a place for karaoke aficionados. With the Wednesday night special and regular karaoke events, there are no pretentious people here, everyone knows your name and welcomes outsiders as if they were their own. Even for folks who aren’t much into singing, this is a place to hangout and watch others try their luck with 15 minutes of karaoke fame.
Two – Score Bar
1437 Washington Ave, Miami: 305-535-1111
Score Bar is always a fun place to be at. But beware, this is a certified gay bar so it is much wilder than usual. However, with lots of lights and a friendly staff, they really do go out of their way to make it fun for all, gay or not.
One – Seven Seas
2200 SW 57th Ave., Miami: 305-266-6071
One of Miami’s best dive bars, Seven Seas is a place where superb singers and the flop shows hang out together trying to outdo one another on scores of Def Leppard or The Little Mermaids. This is a hugely overlooked place probably because it is considered something of a hole on the wall but with an interior showcasing a moose head, fish nets, mismatched shoes and a giant lobster, there are plenty of randomized objects that add an oddly unsettling aura to this Red Road mainstay.
Saturdays, Thursdays and Tuesdays are pirate ship nights that go well into the wee hours with karaoke on full blast. These vocal madness nights are always full with a plethora of folks. You will even bump across a few self-proclaimed rock stars, ladies in minidresses and much more on your way to karaoke madness.
