CASEY JONES TAVERN
14026 Triskett Rd (West Side)
Foodies and singers can both enjoy a sit down at Casey Jones Tavern. Priding itself on its extensive song selection, the Tavern updates its tracks monthly to provide the newest hits for bar-goers to bellow out. Karaoke kicks off every Friday and Saturday, so grab a group of friends and go act a fool. (Photo by Caitlin Summers)

OTANI STEAKHOUSE AND SUSHI
180 W Streetsboro St, Hudson
Karaoke is an Japanese tradition, so it only makes sense to belt out Beyonce at a sushi restaurant. Otani Steakhouse and Sushi is one of the only spots in the Cleveland area that offers an extensive menu of Japanese dishes and let you sing your order too. Otani offers karaoke night monthly, announcing the dates on social media. (Photo courtesy of Caitlin Summers)

TINA’S NITE CLUB
5400 Herman Ave (West Side)
No one wants to belt their heart out to a judgmental crowd. That’s why Tina’s Nite Club is one of the most popular karaoke bars in Cleveland. Entirely unpretentious, Tina’s ensnares patrons with its dirt cheap Jell-O shots and inviting vibe. Inside, the place looks like a typical dive bar, dimly lit and littered with dart boards. But once the DJ throws on the first karaoke track, the room lights up with a perky, friendly energy to welcome newcomers and seasoned singers alike. (Photo by Caitlin Summers)

CORKY’S PLACE
13302 Detroit Ave., Lakewood
Whether you’re ready to bust out some country twangs or throw down a rap battle, Corky’s Place is the spot to do it. The bar offers karaoke nights Wednesday through Saturday and has cultivated quite an extensive catalog of jams. With drink specials aplenty and comforting bartenders (for if you make a fool of yourself), Corky’s provides a great atmosphere for the wannabe-popstars in all of us. (Photo by Caitlin Summers)

SLY FOX LOUNGE
4755 Great Northern Blvd, North Olmsted
The Sly Fox Lounge is the best place to live out a rock star fantasy. With a full stage, the bar hosts plenty of live bands every week. However, when it’s not supporting local rockers, it’s backing up local wannabes with a large list of karaoke rock songs. Up on stage, anyone can realize their Almost Famous  dreams. Plus, if you’re lucky, the Sly Fox himself might come up and give you a hand. (Photo courtesy of Sly Fox Lounge’s Facebook page)

MR. PEABODY’S PUB AND GRILLE
4967 Pearl Rd
Mr. Peabody’s is a jack of all trades. It offers cornhole on Wednesdays, drink specials on game nights, Keno and a full kitchen. Plus, on every night undevoted to special events, Mr. Peabody’s gets jiggy with it, offering a large list of karaoke songs for patrons to party to. The only thing managers ask is “no riff-raff.” (Photo courtesy of Mr. Peabody’s Google Plus page)

ACES GRILLE
32650 Lorain Rd, North Ridgeville
Aces is a friendly, barely lit bar where the majority of the light filters down from the bar’s several hanging televisions. For the past month, Aces has foregone many of its regularly scheduled karaoke night to be a good Clevelander and show some love for the Cavs. Now that the local heroes are done with their season, the bar is back in the groove with karaoke most nights.

BAMBOOZLES
5515 Broadview Rd, Parma
Six nights a week, Bamboozles (formerly Wall Street Tavern) is a sports bar, memorabilia clinging to dirty walls and the nine-to-five crowd huddled around big screens. On Wednesday nights, however, the Parma bar opens its door to crooners, rappers, rockers and more for its karaoke nights. It’s a good place for newcomers as the crowd’s too low-key to verbalize its judgments, and the laid back atmosphere suits the mid-week hang out well. (Photo courtesy of Terry S.)

FLYING MONKEY PUB
819 Jefferson Ave. (Tremont)
Not only does the Flying Monkey Pub contend for the most creative bar name in Cleveland, it’s also in the running for the most fun karaoke spot. The bar, which hosts karaoke every night after 8:30 p.m., serves up cheap drinks and bar food. Its patio just opened for the summer and boasts that it’s pet-friendly.
