Some of these places cater to singers every night of the week, while others only do karaoke on specific nights. Some of these spots made the list last year, but we've also updated it and added a few more. Keep reading to see the ten best places to sing karaoke in Denver.

10. Local 46
4586 Tennyson St.

For decades, the Music Bar was haven for karaoke, but it closed near the end of 2011. But fear not, Local 46, which now inhabits the space, is keeping a lively karaoke tradition alive on Thursdays as part of its weekly entertainment that also includes an open stage on Mondays and live music on the weekends.

9. Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill
8260 Northfield Blvd

While there have been a few bars that have tried hosting karaoke nights with live bands, Toby Keith's Tuesday night U Rock live band karaoke is one of the ones that's lasted. Others have never seemed to have lasted that long. It can be fun as hell singing along with a live band, and here the lyrics for all the songs are timed out to the music and shown on dual screens for you to follow along just like if you're doing regular karaoke.

Karaoke starts at 8 p.m. seven nights a week at Park Centre Lounge & Grille in Westminster.

8. Park Centre Lounge & Grille
12011 N. Pecos Street

With an exhaustive catalog of 50,000 songs, a professional surround sound system and karaoke seven nights a week, starting at 8 p.m., Park Centre take its karaoke seriously. While most places have books and forms to fill out, everything is digital here; all you have to do is tell the DJ your name and what song you want to sing when you're up. There's also a computer to browse through songs and even listen to them before they get on the mike.

Full House on south Broadway Sundays & Tuesdays. This Company is really cool they have hybrid board game/karaoke games. On Sundays its Pictionaraoke & Tuesdays is Monopoloke! The DJ's are awesome and I always have a great night there.

I'm a karaoke regular and try to convince newbies to sing by saying "This is karaoke - no talent required."

Or at least really, REALLY terrible singers and karaoke go hand in hand.

No. People of all walks of life enjoy it. There's a reason it's popular, it's a lot of fun.

Don't trashy people and karaoke go hand in hand?

Majestic Saloon in aurora is a lot of fun. Gennaro's on Monday nights is another great spot. Armida's is overrated and filled with trashy people. Sobo 151 is great for a Thursday and Saturday. The Glenn in Northglenn on a Thursday and Friday.

Right in front of Westword's office whilst pissed drunk after a few rounds at some overpriced, douche-magnet bar in LoDo or Cap Hill in the wee hours of the mornin', yo!

Oh Westword, I always feel like you get it half right with your 10 top lists. You completely missed Sobo 151, which has great karaoke on Sat, and the sushi-tastic karaoke at Sushi Hai. And Armida's as #1?! That has to be one of the worst karaoke joints in Denver. Rude DJ's, apathetic bar staff and terrible food.
