Dads Karaoke
2615 Mossrock, (210) 267-5703, facebook.com/dadskaraoke
When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together 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?
