8 Karaoke Bars In Ottawa To Sing Your Fvcking Heart Out At

Sometimes, you just need to belt your heart out. It doesn't matter if you sound like a dying cat or Beyoncé, karaoke nights are an unreal kind of fun. It may not seem like your average stress reliever, but don't knock it 'till you try it.

There's a huge reason why most karaoke nights are held in bars–because alcohol is encouraged to gain confidence in order to really show everyone what you got. So grab your friends, throw on some ABBA and use those pipes to your advantage.

Here are 9 karaoke bars in Ottawa to sing your fvcking heart out at:

Blackpepper Urban Pub // 1017 Wellington Street West

Don't know what to do on a Friday night in exciting Ottawa? Well, Blackpepper Urban Pub has all night karaoke every single Friday from 10 pm - 2 pm. If you're super hipster, you'll love this place. So throw on some '90s tunes and rock out (you can rock out to the Spice Girls, right?)

Shanghai Restaurant // 651 Somerset Street West

If you missed out on Friday night karaoke, Shanghai Restaurant offers Saturday night karaoke! It's a delicious Chinese restaurant that also turns into a club vibe at night. You'll never be hungry, bored or have a voice at Shanghai Restaurant.

O'Brien's Eatery & Pub // 1145 Heron Road

O'Brien's is a great place to go if you're looking for good food and a good time. It's a laid back pub, however, on Friday and Saturday nights, you can expect to be transformed into a karaoke queen/king. Once everyone starts, you'll want to join because you'll feel incredibly comfortable in this neighbourhood bar.

James Street Pub // 390 Bank Street

If you get bored after work during the week, you'll love the karaoke night on Tuesdays at James Street Pub. It's also offered on Saturday nights as well and you can enjoy their daily drink specials to go along with your new found confidence.

The Conroy Pub // 4 Lorry Greenburg Drive

Grab some friends and head out to this country-chic pub for some karaoke. Offered on Fridays and Saturdays, you can bet you'll all be singing some sad Brad Paisley song by the end of the night. If you've just gotten over a breakup, this is the perfect place to go to spill your heart out.

The Lookout Bar // 41 York Street

The Lookout Bar is known for its nightlife in Ottawa. They offer the funnest karaoke nights on Tuesday and Wednesday, and so many more amazing options during the week as well. It's never a dull moment at the Lookout Bar. They also have deals on shooters for both karaoke nights as well–so you'll be prepared.

Swizzles // 246 Queen Street

Swizzles doesn't discriminate. They state on their website that they are Ottawa's only bias free bar, and welcome anybody. They offer karaoke on Friday nights and there will be no judgement made at Swizzles. So be yourself, bring some friends, and belt your sweet heart out!

VIP Karaoke Bar // 610 Somerset Street West

VIP Karaoke Bar offers karaoke every single night, from top 40 hits to popular Asian hits. Located in Chinatown, they have private karaoke rooms as well as a dance floor for if you're not a shy soul. You can show up or rent out these rooms for parties, but I recommend both. Whether you're just looking for something to do or celebrating a birthday, VIP Karaoke Bar is an amazing place to be.
