Portland On The Cheap

Entertainment:  Karaoke

Updated January 2015

BarFly Karaoke Listings
Offers a listing of neighborhood bars and restaurants that offer karaoke.  Some listings may only offer karaoke one or two nights a week, but it may be not as well-known and therefore not as crowded, meaning more mic-time for you!
Family Karaoke Studio
Located in Beaverton, this facility offers karaoke rooms that are available to rent by the hour.  Bring yourself or bring your friends and family, rates range from $25-$35 per hour.  Song selections include Korean, Japanese and American languages.  It might be a little hard to find, since the sign is in Korean so be sure to call for specific directions to the strip mall.
Online karaoke in 3 steps:  connect your microphone, select a song, then sing.  You must register and log in to sing some songs, while others are available without any registration.   The song library is small, but new songs are added everyday.  All music on the site are cover versions made by professional musicians and not the original artist.  Try it out, it's fun and totally free.

Portland Mercury Karaoke-A-Thon Blog
The Portland Mercury takes a week to sample the various karaoke venues around the Portland area.  From web site: 

"a 7-day karaoke marathon where I visit one to two different karaoke hotspots around Portland every night for an entire week until I either complete the marathon or die, and report my experiences back to you.

The karaoke odyssey began tonight at 9 PM at the strip club Devil's Point with Stripparoke, which is exactly what it sounds like: strippers stripping while you sing karaoke. Here's the current schedule:

Sunday: Stripparoke at Devil's Point 9 PM / Stage 2: Alibi
Monday: Karaoke from Hell at Dante's 10 PM
Tuesday: Baby Ketten Karaoke at Mississippi Pizza 9 PM
Wednesday: Boiler Room 9 PM / Stage 2: Beauty Bar
