Best Karaoke Bars in Melbourne at a Glance

Let’s start this list with a free, that’s right, FREE Karaoke bar. Jankara Karaoke offers over 5,000 English, Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino songs, so you’ll find something to belt out after a few drinks. Speaking of drinks, Jankara’s beer offerings are extensive, from Japanese favourites Asahi and Kirin to Suntory Premium Malts on tap and Belgian Hoegaarden—one of the best karaoke bars Melbourne has to offer, just for its fun party atmosphere alone.

1. Jankara Karaoke

If singing in a room full of strangers isn’t your thing, KBOX Karaoke may be a better choice. The private rooms are the perfect spot for you and your friends or colleagues to get messy and badly sing along to some of the greatest songs over various decades. It’s got everything you’d expect from a karaoke bar, disco balls, carpeted walls, plush couches and a list of songs that’ll have you singing till the early morning.

2. KBOX Karaoke

One of the best karaoke bars in Melbourne, F.M. Karaoke does things differently with their themed private karaoke rooms. Choose from modern, Roman and Egyptian-themed private rooms or alternatively, take advantage of the free open karaoke if you dare. You could even have your Bachelor’s or Bachelorette parties there. They’ve got multiple languages, the latest hits and the golden oldies, plus it’s centrally located on Bourke Street, so it’s easy to get to.

Why not add a little Karaoke the next time you’re knocking down pins at Strike Bowling. Private rooms allow you the discretion of embarrassing yourself only among your closest friends instead of the entire building. When the singing gets you thirsty, head to the bar or get drinks delivered to your room. With their cheap hourly rates (rather than the more expensive per person rate), you’ll be singing till your tonsils hurt and dancing the night away well into the early morning hours.

Offering a whole range of services for every type of budget, the venue boasts many well-furnished rooms with cosy sofas, modern equipment and a full load of privacy if you’re a little mic shy. Plus, you can drink from a fine selection of local and imported beers, wines and spirits while you take turns at the mic.

Heroes Karaoke and Rooftop Bar have got it all. When looking for the best karaoke bars in Melbourne, look no further because it has 4 floors of singing and drinking conveniently located on Bourke Street, plus public and private rooms, an Asian BBQ kitchen, and, to top it off, a fabulous rooftop bar.

Rice Queen delivers excellent pan-Asian dishes and has a banging karaoke area with a 30-person capacity if you’re in a large group. It’s kitschy, in the best way, with vaulted ceilings, bright lanterns, and plastic cherry blossoms with cosy and inviting areas dotted throughout. If you’re done with singing, then take a gander at the impressive menu featuring dishes from all over Asia, which also has some pretty good vegan offerings and the drinks menu with a nice mix of Asian-inspired cocktails.
