When the weekend rolls around and a mere dance floor doesn’t cut it, karaoke always takes the night to the next level. And while Vancouver might not have a long list of options, there are some solid spots to check out the next time you’re feeling musical.
Without further ado, here are 8 karaoke bars to check out in and around Vancouver.
Vancouver’s best-known dive bar, featuring karaoke every night of the week. If you like karaoke at all, then you need to go here at least once in your life. It might be a little too hardcore for your tastes, but you won’t know until you try, right?
Where: 37 West Hastings Street
Lively bar on Davie Street that just so happens to be the oldest gay club in the city. Not that that really matters, though. Anyone can come here and enjoy dancing, pool, and a dedicated karaoke room.
Where: 1042 Davie Street
Situated in Robson Plaza, SWITCH offers karaoke every day from noon until 6 pm (all-day karaoke on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays). You can check out their hours and rates here.
Where: 1339 Robson Street
This popular two-day music festival is returning to Metro Vancouver & the lineup is insane

Just down the street and inside of a building completed in 1898 is Pub 340. Head here on a Tuesday or Thursday for super cheap drinks and a warm space. As an added bonus, there’s a pinball room for you to enjoy in between songs.
Where: 340 Cambie Street
The first of three karaoke spots with private rooms. This spot is in the heart of downtown, meaning you can swing by after a night out for a little fun before you head home. It’s the most expensive on this list, but worth the price every once in a while.
Where: 1133 Robson Street
Prive Kitchen & Bar
Where: 1001 West Broadway, #200
You have to drive to Richmond for this one, but it’s still a great spot for some solid karaoke. Another relatively upscale spot, but cheaper than Fantacity. As a rule of thumb, these private room bars don’t have as many English songs as regular karaoke bars, but who cares? They’ve got the classics.
Where: 4451 No 3 Road #201, Richmond
Now, this is a true karaoke bar. Insane hours, a relatively dingy location, and a warm host. Head here to drown your sorrows in soju as you get progressively better (read: louder) at singing.
Where: 5679 Imperial Street, Burnaby
So, now that you know where to go the next time you want to bust out the vocal cords.
