Pattaya is awash with all sorts of entertainment chiefly when it comes to its vibrant nightlife. You have some excellent Thai and western nightclubs, music bars and sports bars so it is hardly surprising, especially being in the heart of Asia, that there is a great selection of karaoke bars too. Here are our suggestions for six of the best where you can sing your heart out with friends long into the small hours.
The Princess Bar on Soi Buakhoa is a great bar with karaoke playing a prominent part of their entertainment along with welcoming professional performers. The advantage with this bar is that it opens at 6pm which is earlier than many others so ideal for those who wish to have a sing-along at the start of their evening. This is a very pleasant setting with all the tables adorned with table clothes which gives it a more upmarket feel.
The Sunrise Lounge is on Soi Rajchawaroon (or Soi Kasetsin) in Pratamnak and is an upmarket karaoke bar that aims mostly at the Russian market although, naturally, everyone is welcome.

This is another of the bars that open slightly earlier than you would normally anticipate for a karaoke bar with the doors opening at 4pm. They have a vast array of Russian beers that are often relatively hard to come by so this is another attraction if you are something of a beer connoisseur.
New Business Bar can be found on Pattaya 3rd Road and is another of the more upmarket venues targeting the Thai and Asian market. The interior is magnificently designed with even a pond with bridges being a prominent feature. This a great place for groups to go with the venue being designed with this purpose in mind. There is also plenty of parking for anyone who wishes to go by car. The prices are a little on the inflated side but given the setting; this is probably to be expected.
This is well-established karaoke bar located on Soi 16 Pattaya Klang and is a relatively small venue seating around 30 people.

The ladies in the bar including Mona herself are more than happy to sing for you or alternatively, you can sing-along yourself. The beer is good value and the bar caters for people who are more out to enjoy themselves rather than take their singing too seriously.
Eriko Japanese Karaoke
Eriko Japanese Karaoke bar can be found on Pattaya Klang, not too far from Pattaya Beach Road. As the name would suggest, it has a very Japanese feel about it and is filled with large black and red sofas and is quite an expansive venue. This is a popular setting with the staff more than happy to sit and sing for you if you just prefer to listen.
Lock and Load Bungalow Bar
The Lock and Load Bar is located just off Soi Buakhao and is cheaper establishment aiming at people who are out to enjoy a few drinks and then maybe sing a song. They don’t really cater to serious musicians but in many ways, this adds to the appeal and it is a great place to relax and have fun. The drinks prices are very reasonable and the bar is well laid out.
