The Falls is an ultra-casual (read: divey) Downtown bar from the woman responsible for classic tiki dive the Lava Lounge, who left the game to try her hand at jewelry making, and now is back to booze, proving once and for all that she really should've just gone to Jared.
This Burbank grill and lounge is the perfect spot to sport your pipes and belt out a tune for a spirited night of karaoke. They feature more than 20,000 songs ranging across many different genres, not to mention cheap drinks and free parking.
Partying at Max is never a bad idea for great singers, terrible ones, and everyone in between. Max offers a festive atmosphere and special drink prices to help you muster up the courage to get on stage.
A Venice landmark, this beachside spot has been serving up market-fresh dishes and high-quality craft cocktails since the '40s. Be sure to try the fish tacos, or split some of their small bites or an artisan pizza with your group -- a group you should also convince to join in the Whaler's Monday night karaoke. While you're there, you'll want to head up to the second-floor patio bar for some gorgeous ocean views, particularly at sunset.
The Gaslite is part karaoke dive, part pseudo nightclub (read: no velvet ropes or bottle service, but a bustling dance floor nonetheless) in Santa Monica. The dimly lit, decades old joint is open until 2am every day, dedicated to providing guests with an ample place to dance, sing, or a place to just grab a late night, mid-week (cheap) drink in an unpretentious atmosphere on Wilshire Boulevard. Also of note: free popcorn.
Not just what you have about circus clowns (but seriously, think about how dark and dead their souls must be), Complex is a dark-in-a-different-way, divey 150-person-cap music venue and booze hall in the heart of Glendale.
Brass Monkey is a bit on the smaller side, so if you want to get a spot and sing your heart out, get there early and reserve a spot.
This true karaoke bar boasts a solid menu of both draft and bottled beers and other drinks to be used as fuel to power your ballads, which come from a list of more than 50,000 songs to choose from.
This Hollywood club is for more than just boozing and dancing: come here for quirky shows like Point Break Live! and wild Bingo nights.
