Karaoke brings people together like few other activities: it can be the pregame for a big night out or the final destination once you’ve had so much to drink you forget that you can’t actually sing...
Nothing is more liberating than belting out a 90s banger or 80s power ballard and knowing that everyone has to listen to you strive to hit those high notes. To save you from spending time scrolling through your phone looking for the best karaoke bars when you could be singing, we’ve put together a list of Brisbane’s best karaoke bars.
