UPDATED: The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 Karaoke Bars

Categories: Best of Houston

7. F BAR
FBar Nov16.jpg
F Bar gets double billing for being one of the best karaoke and gay bars in Houston. The interior is classy and fabulous, as are the drag shows on Sunday nights. The dance floor is small but fun, and if you get tired of grooving to the beat, the patio outside provides a quiet respite from the clubby atmosphere.

But you're here for the karaoke, right? Well, rest assured, Thursday nights will fill you up with more mock-singing (and Bellinis by the pitcher) than your vocal chords can handle.

Spotlight Nov16.jpg
There are multiple Spotlight locations: One in the Galleria area, and the other in Midtown. Go to the one near the Galleria; you can bring your own food (not drinks), and it offers beautiful private rooms where you and your friends can sing and dance to an endless list of classic and modern songs in nearly every genre imaginable. Spotlight's song selection system is like the Google of karaoke; just type in the name of the song or band you want to sing-along with, and it pops up. Easy!

5901 Westheimer, 713-266-7768, www.spotlightkaraoke.com


Genji Nov16.jpg
The Houston branch of the restaurant and bar chain is such a popular place, it even prompted our own Shea Serrano to give it a review. At Genji's you can order your food and your music from the same table. The place is a bit rundown, the private rooms in the back and the karaoke songs are rip-offs of originals, but it's worth it for two-for-one eating and song, right? Right?

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.
