Before the quarantine, I ran club karaoke shows 5 days a week. Here's where and when you would have been able find me, were any clubs open. Note these are bars, so all
patrons must be 21+. Also none of these shows require a cover.
- Sunday & Wednesday 8:00pm - 1:00am
- Renegades Bar, 501 W. Taylor St, San Jose.
This is a very cozy, but well-kept bar, and one of the very few "classic" gay bars left in the south
Be prepared: This is a cash-only bar.
- Tuesday 9:00pm - 2:00am
- The Cat Club, 1190 Folsom St, San Francisco.
The Cat Club is a San Francisco dance club fixture, and has the awards to prove it.
I've been doing karaoke there since 2009, and we now have a mention in Zagat, as well as a couple of years
of Best Karaoke Club from the SF Weekly.
The Cat Club has a mostly younger crowd, with a fair number of young professionals, but
it's also a place the local club workers like to frequent.
- Thursday 9:00pm - 1:00am
- O'Malley's, 2135 Old Middlefield Way,
O'Malley's is a comfortable pub, with a diverse crowd, good food, and a dedicated stage area for
karaoke and live events.
The crowd here is both very welcoming and very enthusiastic.
- Saturday 8:00pm - 1:30am
- Rocco's Blue Max,
828 W. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale.
The Max has been a karaoke staple of the peninsula for quite a few years, and has managed to garner
awards along the way.
It boasts a very mixed crowd of ages and song styles, which makes for a very fun and varied karaoke night!
