Best Karaoke Bars In Budapest
By<a href=" " target="blank"> We Love Budapest</a>: Karaoke bars are on fire and their contagious capacity to invoke energy and good times should not be undermined for it’s the cheapest alternative to therapy. We know why the caged bird sings, it’s for freedom within song. Check out our quick guide of how to karaoke followed by our list of the best karaoke hot spots in Budapest.

Janis Pub

By far, our favorite Budapestian Karaoke hotspot in Pest. Located on a narrow cobblestone street that screams Europe just in case if you forgot where you were! This is a British pub righteously dedicated to Janis Joplin, a perfect haven for those who wail. Good people and awesome Joplin memorabilia, a place to make memories worth remembering.
Address: 1053 Budapest, Királyi Pál St 8.

Morrison's Music Pub/Opera

Not to be confused with the bougie Morrison's 2! Morrisons Music Pub is the closest to a New York bar in Greenwich Village but here in Budapest! It’s tucked underground off a side street next to the Hungarian State Opera. It’s cramped capacity is not for the claustrophobic or those with intimacy issues but it is for those who dig dive bars, sublime spirits and good times.

- On multiple locations

Ypsilon Café

Located a bit further out of central downtown Budapest, Ypsilon has a classy atmosphere upstairs within it’s restaurant and a sassy nightlife downstairs where karaoke reigns supreme. We strongly recommend this spot.
Address: 1142 Budapest Stefánia St 1.

Pointer Pub

The karaoke hotspot is in Buda. It's a British pub directly off the Mechwart Liget tram stop. For those who might have stage fright, have no fear for this pub has no stage. But it does sport a true Chicago-esque feel to it, as it sits on street level with a multi-cultural blend of patrons and is located right next to public transport.

Crazy Café

Located walking distance from Nyugati Palyaudvar, this Crazy Café is in a cellar where the energy does get crazy but in a most excellent way. The drinks are a bit pricey so there's no shame to a little preparty before this party. You'll respect crazy once you submit to this Crazy Café.
Address: 1065 Budapest, Jókai St 30.

How to Karaoke

1. Enlist Shiny Happy People
Seek accomplices that jump off the bridge right after you, the type your mother warned you about.

2. Know Your Song
It’s your heart’s anthem, the song that plays in your head and that you sing in the shower.

3. Liquidate Your Journey
Your vocal cords deserve lubricant and it’s proper to patron and pay homage to the Party Gods.

4. Game Face
Don’t sweat singing in front of strangers. Everyone there wants to have fun and they’ll respect you when they see that you’re having fun! Don’t think the happy thought, be the happy thought!

5. Show Time
Your song is called and the microphone is passed. Your mission if you choose to accept it is to rock and with this list of Budapestian Karaoke bars, one can rock and keep it rolling.
