As the sun goes down over Calgary, your inner rock star will want to come out and play. Warm up those vocal cords, and escape to these karaoke spots where Culture Trip’s local insiders often go to belt out tunes and leave their musical legacy on the stage.
Want to feel like a pop star for an evening? If so, Galaxy Karaoke has 11 swanky private rooms, both small and large, where you can sing at the top of your lungs around your closest friends (or co-workers). Whether you’re just having a fun night out or celebrating a special occasion, it’s the perfect spot to sing your favorite tunes in a variety of different languages. Be sure to make a reservation as rooms go quickly. You can also whet your whistle and grab some grub while you’re here. Recommended by local insider Yamila Godoy
Where can you go in Calgary for home-made kimchi, refreshing soju and top-notch karaoke? That would be Sole. Wander down a quiet little alleyway where you’ll be welcomed by the smell of delicious Korean food, more than 15 soju options and the vibrant sounds of singing. Here, you’ll find eight private rooms and more than 10,000 karaoke songs in more than 10 different languages, so you only have yourself to blame if you can’t find something to sing.

Whether you’re looking to grab the mic or be a spectator, Ducky’s Pub and Restaurant is the perfect little retro pub to enjoy some late-night karaoke. This friendly joint draws a welcoming, lively crowd. Even if you’re a bit nervous about singing on your own, some of Ducky’s best acts often get fellow patrons to join them in renditions of well-known hits. Many Calgarians have fond memories of belting out a melody until the early-morning hours at Ducky’s. Recommended by local insider Stuart Forster
Would you consider yourself more of a shower singer? If so, the private rooms at K-One Karaoke may be the spot for you and your friends. It offers festive rooms where you can choose from more than 250,000 songs in several languages. While you’re here, ask one of the friendly staff to whip up a delicious cocktail or pour a glass of wine, soju or beer (hey, whatever gets you singing). The prices are reasonable, with special deals available. Recommended by local insider Coco Hiu Tung Yuen
The Tipsy Pig is the quintessential neighborhood pub. Here, you can enjoy casual dining, along with pool tables, live music and karaoke. If you’re looking for a cool, laid-back place with friendly staff ready to pour you a stiff drink to help you grab that mic, then Tipsy Pig is going to be your new Cheers bar. On Wednesday nights, you can fill up on some delicious wing specials before getting ready to sing your heart out with your favorite (new) friends. Recommended by local insider Coco Hiu Tung Yuen
