    My friend, who is a VV, is telling me that she thinks we should all find a Kareoke place during our upcoming Sept. trip involving 3 couples. Is there still a Kareoke place in IP? Any others on the Strip? If so, any recommendations and what time do they usually heat up? I suspect late? like after midnight. .?? Just trying to rough out our plans. . .

    thanks

    In June I saw some karaoke at the bar near Brand steakhouse in Monte Carlo. It looked like a lot of fun. It was neat because you could hear and see it from the casino floor so it was like you were singing to the whole casino. Not sure if this was a one time thing or if they have this regularly but worth checking out.

    Aero, Ellis Island is a short walk from the strip and has Kareoke every night. I was there on a Tuesday night a couple of years ago and saw a 60-something Asian guy dressed as Elvis singing, of course, Elvis tunes. He was fantastically bad but it was great fun.

    I have to second the vote for the fantastically bad Ellis Island.

    They used to have karaoke at the IP, but I'm sure it's gone, permanently or temporarily, with the construction.

    They sometimes have it almost next door at Bill's, or over at Ellis Island if you don't mind walking a bit.

    Saw karaoke at Ellis Island a few weeks back. When it first started, around 9 or so, it was pretty good and a couple of ladies were outstanding. Then the drinks took hold, some guys thought they could impress the ladies with their vocals (mostly NOT happening!). Mixed review.

    Would I see it again? If I'm there and it starts up, I think so.

    Actually it's moved to a spot off strip.

    As others have mentioned, IP has closed, best bet on the strip is Sun-Wed at either Bills or Cabo Wabo. As others have said too, Ellis Island is your 7 day a week option, Friday nights at HOB in MB, they have rockstar karoake, (karaoke with a band). There's also Brand on Thursday (i believe) and the Hawaiian marketplace has karaoke at one of their booths/bars on some nights.

    Did they actually start that again?

    I know they had it several years ago but I heard the guy who was producing it quit doing it.

    Cabo Wabo at PH used to do this (not sure if they still do or which nights).

    You'd get a free tequila shot for doing a song. But while you were singing, the hostess would hold up signs to the audience generally mocking you (unless you're really good).

    I've also seen Karaoke at the Orleans.

    Aw no one knows about the Karoake party at Harrahs every evening??? It's 6p-9p in the piano bar every.single.night. Party like a rockstar...indeed.

    I do really miss IP Karoake though. :(

    Basically an industry night for porn stars, with karaoke, I believe you can find it by looking up karaoke xxx.

    Yes, same members of the band from what I could tell, although a new person doing sign ups, which is probably a good thing, as the previous woman didn't seem like she wanted to be there.

    They started running it in February or March I believe again and were still going in July.

    I had also seen on Hooters site, that they had it on Saturday night, but given how these guys have dropped off the radar at times, I left it out of discussion until I could confirm myself.

    It was at a little outside bar on the north side. I don't know if they just do kareokee on the weekends or every night.

    There is a gay bar called freezone just down the street from the hard rock in the fruit loop that has karaoke. They also sometimes have 5 dollar all you can drink specials. Some of my crew members told me about it since it's probably the cheapest way to get smashed other than sitting at the machines losing money that way! I'm straight but not homophobic at all so I was comfy here and no one was overly aggressive. However if you're not gay friendly at all you might not like seeing some of the public displays of affection. But for 5 dollar all you can drink and karaoke...I love it!
