When singing in the shower isn’t enough to sate your desire to belt out your favorite song, karaoke is the perfect solution. Whether you’re a true chanteuse who can enchant a crowd, or you prefer a private room where you can warble among friends, Los Angeles has a karaoke bar for you.
It can be hard to get into Break Room 86: it’s often packed, there’s a dress code, and entrance is hidden around the side of The Line hotel. Yet inside is an ’80s-themed wonderland of arcade games, Cocktail-style bartenders slinging creative drinks, the occasional ’80s cover band, and a hydraulic a stage that periodically lowers to reveal breakdancing troupes or Michael Jackson impersonators. The karaoke occurs in a series of clandestine rooms, which can be booked for parties up to 20. On Tuesdays, there’s live band karaoke with band The Good Time Boys.
