“Go on, get on up there. It will be fun.” Certainly, anyone who frequents bars on karaoke night has heard a similar pep talk. Most people, even the shy ones will, after a few drinks, venture on stage to get in tune with their inner Robert Plant or inner Madonna. Karaoke-themed bars are a time-tested value in entertainment. “Go on, get up there. It’ll be fun.” That pep talk certainly will be heard at these four popular Queen City karaoke bars.
