PVD Nightlife: Step Up to the Mic

Grab some friends, get to the nearest karaoke bar and show the city your inner pop diva


If singing and being smart are two highlights on your social card, you need to get down to The Boombox for Trivioke, the love child of pub trivia and karaoke, on the second-to-last Friday of the month. Test your knowledge on random facts while breaking out into song during rounds of pop culture quizzes and vocal theatrics. Inspired by karaoke “boxes” in Korea and Japan, The Boombox’s unique atmosphere – complete with its main lounge and private, by-the-hour karaoke rooms – will lend to a riotously good time in an iconic urban hotspot. 122 Fountain Street

Comfy couches, flashing lights, big screen TVs and state-of-the-art equipment fill the private karaoke suites of Sura Korean Barbeque, where you can choose from English, Chinese, Japanese or Korean songs. If you’re voice isn’t on fire, the authentic hot pot or all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue will feed your appetite. 300 George Waterman Road, Johnston

There’s belting out tunes and then there’s belting out tunes with drag diva sensation Sabrina Blaze. Thursday nights at The Village challenges you to bring your charm and flare to the stage for one of the craziest karaoke nights in town. 373 Richmond Street

The Parlour
may be small in size, but it’s big in musical happenings. Reincarnated from The Living Room, it prides itself on live performances, so the Friday karaoke night with DJ Big Sean is an ideal scene to pump those pipes. 1119 North Main Street

Thursday nights are hot on the Hill with karaoke hosted by WRIK Entertainment at the swanky Nara Lounge. Choose from over 20,000 songs as you shine in the spotlight, or join their karaoke singing contest. 248 Atwells Avenue
