Cocktails and karaoke go together like Hall and Oates. So what better way to celebrate your inner pop star than by raising a glass and taking the mic? Most people need a little extra lubrication to get up the nerve anyway, and the songs always sound best when you're too tipsy to care.

We put together a list of Portland karaoke bars that can satisfy your ballad-blasting needs no matter what mood you're in. And if you want to take your party on the road, there's the Old School PDX karaoke bus, tricked out with a karaoke sound system, dance floor, and party lights.

But here's a pro tip: Steer clear of the Whitney and Adele songs. They never sound like you think they will, no matter how many martinis you've had. (Note: The points on this map guide are not ranked; rather, they're organized geographically.)

A long-time PDX staple for tiki-drinking enthusiasts and the karaoke crowd, the Alibi is under new ownership, but as changes are slowly rolled out, karaoke still opens the stage at 9 p.m. seven nights a week. The song catalog has around 30,000 tracks, but the secret stash of Laserdiscs from the '80’s might have your favorite jam.

This Cantonese eatery and full bar does more than pour drinks and serve Chinese cuisine.

Karaoke just got a lot more interesting... and sultry. That’s because every Sunday night starting at 9 p.m. the legendary Stripparaoke takes place. Yes, it is what it sounds like: Strippers dance while you sing your heart out. Don’t worry, chances are most folks won’t be paying much attention to you anyway.
