Next up is Montrose's Guava Lamp, situated at 570 Waugh Drive. With 4.5 stars out of 71 reviews on Yelp, the gay bar is another favorite karaoke spot.

Mike P. wrote, "This bar has a nice relaxed vibe, with good music. Also check out what's going on, because they always seem to have some different event daily. I am a fan of karaoke on Wednesdays and steak night on Tuesdays. Be sure to show up early for steak night cause it's becoming popular."

Vivian N., who reviewed it on June 4, said, "They've really upgraded the karaoke experience, technology-wise, from when I first started coming here six years ago. They have an app and screens to allow for convenience and ease in choosing songs to sing. The owner is always friendly and accommodating, whether it's a small group or a large party! This place is a classic!"

4. The Continental Club

The Continental Club, a dive bar and music venue, is another go-to, with four stars out of 101 Yelp reviews. Head over to 3700 Main St. to see for yourself.

While it's known for being a music venue (you can see the live music calendar here if you're interested), the bar also gives patrons opportunities to get on stage and show off.

May N. said, "This is one of my favorite live music venues. During the week, they have regular acts, often with no cover and cheap food. ... Get there early for a seat if you plan to sit. Otherwise, dance and volunteer for karaoke!"
