Here's where to sing karaoke almost any night of the week in San Antonio

Sometimes, there's an adrenaline rush that only singing karaoke in front of strangers can provide. It helps when there's booze readily available, and it seems San Antonio bars and restaurants have taken note of that fact, because shows have been popping up all over SA of late.

From straight up karaoke bars to watering holes that host weekly (sometimes multiple) karaoke nights, here's where you can bask in the spotlight after you down a few drinks, nearly any night of the week.

Dad's Karaoke
2615 Mossrock Dr., (210) 267-5703, facebook.com/dadskaraoke
When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together. This spot is perfect for times you just wanna get drunk and scream into a microphone. Slightly sleazy, the bar is a solid option for hours of uninhibited fun for just about anyone, especially first-timers trying to get their feet wet in the art of karaoke. Expect a crowd — or shall we say audience?
