There are times when we all fancy a good sing along and the chance to enjoy 15 minutes of fame for our vocal prowess. Whether you’re more of a team player or like to fly solo, here are the best places in Barcelona for indulging in some light-hearted karaoke. Time to warm up those vocal chords, the stage is calling!
A Viva Voz
This popular karaoke bar was recently rented out by none other than rock band U2 on a visit to Barcelona, catapulting the venue to stardom on the local karaoke scene. While most of the sing-along fun at A Viva Voz takes place at night time until late (they’re open until 3am at weekends), there is an option to rent a private room during the daytime from 12 noon – perfect for parties and groups.
A Viva Voz, Carrer de Rocafort, 187, Barcelona +34 615 37 93 16
Sor Rita, Carrer de la Mercè, 27, Barcelona +34 931 76 62 66
This late night karaoke bar has a decidedly old-school feel to it, from the neon lights to the choice of music. Open every day of the year until late, they have a repertoire of over 10,000 songs available in a variety of languages including English, French and Russian. The drinks are a little pricey considering you also have to pay to get in (about €10 or €12 for a spirit and mixer or a cocktail) but this doesn’t deter the regulars who gather here every weekend.
If you like karaoke but don’t like having to spend the night watching others do their thing then Nick Discoteca might just have the answer. Half way between a nightclub and a karaoke bar, Nick is the kind of place you can take a group of friends when some of you are less sold on the idea of singing in public (and then obviously coax them in to it when you’re there). They even have a dining area where they serve a selection of snacks, sharing platters and light-bites if you want to make a full evening of it.

Touch Music Karaoke Bar
Owned by the same group as the aforementioned A Viva Voz, the Touch Music Karaoke Bar is one of the liveliest joints in town. It’s a favourite among the city’s die-hard karaoke fans and attracts a mixed crowd of locals and tourists. There are plenty of songs to choose from – from vintage classics to latest releases – and the staff are very good at managing requests. They open at 10pm and are open until late every night of the week, closing at 6am. They will also open on request any time of the day for groups of 20 people or more.
