Miami's Five Best Karaoke Bars

Say what you wanna say, but truth is Miami loves karaoke.
Those who have yet to unleash their inner rock star know that the thought of stealing the spotlight in front of a group of drunken strangers has crossed their mind at one point or another.
And those who've had enough liquid courage (or talent?) to grab the mic know they're at a good karaoke joint when it's not just them singing but the entire bar cheering them on, no matter how spectacular they sound or how horribly they suck. Guess that's the beauty of karaoke.
Here are Miami's five best karaoke bars.

5. Sing Sing Karaoke. 717 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-763-8410; singsingmiami.com.
Most of the nights to make it on our list are run by Karaoke With Bernie, with the exception of Sing Sing Karaoke.
While Sing Sing was not one of Bernie's choices, as the only strictly karaoke bar in Miami, the SoBe hot spot makes the cut.
With more than 12,000 songs to choose from in 13 languages, including karaoke classics like Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," and Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer," and 17 private karaoke rooms, you decide where the show goes down.
Best part of it all: You don't have to wait for a certain night of the week to
scream sing at the top of your lungs -- on any given night, you can walk in and have your way with the mic. All you need is $2 a song for bar karaoke, where you get a free song with any drink over $5, or $8 per person to rent out a private room (with reservations, of course).
