    Anybody suggest some fun karaoke places? My girl and I are staying at a strip hotel later this month. We just want to have some fun, so thought we might try karaoke. Neither of us has done it before. Would like to find a place to try it that is not too serious, just fun.
    TIA

    This place apparently has private karaoke rooms. Don't know if it's open yet, but I'm going to look into it next week.

    Try the piano bar in Harrah's..... I've heard some good ones, and some truly atrocious ones....
    but can't remember any booing except maybe from friends of the singer :haha:

    I also recommend Dinos bar, on LV Blvd a few blocks north of the Stratosphere . Talent is not a prerequisite. Very supportive, a total dive, lots of fun, cheap, good song selection.

    Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat Drink Party at Circus Circus.

    I was the drunk bastard who murdered Tom Jones’ Delilah
    a couple years ago. But my fake Welsh accent elicited some chuckles from the audience, yea, they were laughing with me.

    They didn’t have Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline, an easy one for those who can’t hit the high notes. Another staple is Tom Jones’ What’s New Pussycat?

    Did you know that the words to "Pinball Wizard" fit perfectly to the tune of "Folsom Prison Blues"?
    Go to Dino's on March 7, I'll show you...

    Concur. I typically do not like karaoke, but actually had a good time at the Ellis Island version. They had an Elvis Impersonator who sang very well, and the couple other singers were OK, much better than House of Blues Karaoke....:thumbsup:



    One Ellis Island drawback, it gets really smokey in there, so you may want to seek an alternative if smoking bothers you.

    We were at Ellis Island one time and there was a crew of local guys who had costumes and everything. It was great. I mean, not their singing so much, but they were having a good time.

    Good point about the smoke. It can be smokey in there.

    Harrah's piano bar was fun the times I have been. My wife sang a couple of tunes there but I didn't have the balls... That was then ... I'll be there late Feb to murder Piano Man :wiggle:

    On Fremont towards the end (i think North), there’s Cats Meow. We had a fun time there and sang a few times

    The old Hooters has a karaoke area. Hotel is now called Oyo.

    Not sure if you want to take non singers there though. Probably might be best to go to a private karaoke place so they can sing without anyone judging them.

    I feel that everyone can sing pretty well. We dont do it though because for some odd reason we dont want other people to know who we really are. Like if we tried to belt out a heart felt tune in public they would actually get to see behind the curtain.

    This is why booze is so helpful and also why you feel bad the next day. You got drunk and let people see who you really are. You spent years building up that facade and let them see you metaphorically and sometimes really, naked. Warts and all.
