Mo's Nov14.jpg
UPDATED: Mo's in Katy is not to be confused with Mo's the Galleria-area steakhouse. Rocks Off regrets the error.

Mo's advertises itself as a "Place for Steaks," and its location is way out in Katy, but that doesn't make it any less deserving of a place on this list. Boy, are those steaks juicy, and the sociable crowd every night only adds to the delicious experience.

Visitors to Mo's Place can enjoy karaoke Mondays through Wednesdays, with live music performances the rest of the week. However, this establishment does enforce a strict dress code policy of no tank tops, bandannas or backwards baseball caps, so to be on the safe side, leave your casual wear at home. 21940 Kingsland Blvd., Katy, 281-392-3499, www.mosplacekaty.com

In some Asian cultures, KTV's are private rooms that patrons can rent for the purpose of enjoying a karaoke-filled evening. In that tradition, Yes KTV holds five private rooms of various sizes for reasonable prices.

The largest private room has a nice stage, a bathroom and a bar in the back equipped with complimentary glasses and ice. Yes KTV doesn't sell alcohol, but they overcomes that by allowing patrons to bring their own drinks. If you're not an alcoholic drinker, they sell milk, tea and fruit juices. Refreshing!

9889 Bellaire Blvd., 832-605-8566. yesktv.net


We'll let the scantily clad waitresses slide. Why? Karaoke nights on Wednesdays! The Runway Bar and Grill is another far-out venue, but that doesn't make it any less "in" amongst karaoke lovers. Instead of an electronic karaoke machine set to shuffle, they have a live DJ who, if you're good enough, will keep the songs coming all night.

Next time you're at Guava Lamp, spend time standing (because that's almost all one can do) near the DJs.  When they're not being "hilarious" on the mic, they are being catty, rude bitches about nearly every song selection that they see.  I didn't bother staying to sing a single, solitary song, but didn't have the heart to tell the really sweet and concerned guy on the door why.
