Best Karaoke

Corky's Place

Corky's, which hosts karaoke every Wednesday through Saturday, keeps its songbooks stocked with the newest hits from the Nashville country scene as well as old-school Seattle grunge. And unlike most karaoke spots, where the drunk redneck singing "Ring of Fire" is shoved off into the corner, here you're the headliner, front and center, with stage lighting, a roaring sound system, and a packed house -- especially on the weekends. Bartender Nicky is always quick with emergency rations of liquid courage, as well as something to dull the pain, should your version of R. Kelly's "Bump and Grind" outstay its welcome.
