Karaoke Bars in Seattle


Select Local Merchants

After lauding the bar’s mellifluous pairing of “tasty fried chicken” and beer, Seattle Weekly lovingly describes Marco Polo Bar and Grill as “a working stiff's haunt” with “a schizophrenic interior that features a fireplace, pull tabs, pool tables, [and] multiple TV screens.” If not tuned to trivia, those 14 flat screens broadcast all manner of sporting events, drawing upon a premium satellite package powered by the metal plate in Mike Ditka’s head. Cheering sections holler through mouthfuls of breaded gizzards, a local favorite that preludes the menu’s panoply of handheld eats, such as the Coug Supreme, a third-pound burger topped with grilled ham and Cougar Gold cheese. Happy-hour specials during the week allow blue- and white-collar imbibers to divvy up which songs they’ll sing at karaoke that Friday and Saturday, when Marco Polo’s convivial eatery transforms into a who’s who of Steve Perry impersonators.

Behind the muraled storefront that sits on a busy Seattle arterial street, Waterwheel Lounge’s paneled and dark bar harkens back to the 1970s. Bucket-seated pleather stools, an abundance of neon, the big TV in the corner and a lone pool table provide all the ambiance one could wish for. There’s plenty of beer on tap, but bottles and cans of Rainier, PBR, shots of Jägermeister, and a mix of nightly events including karaoke, pub trivia, and live music are the real draw to this unabashed dive bar – as is the outdoor seating area during summer. The menu offers pub fare – fries or tots, burgers and sandwiches, wings, nachos, the occasional taco – and on weekends, Waterwheel brings forth a brunch menu featuring chicken-fried steak, French toast, biscuits and gravy and scrambles.
