Monterey Café When it comes to karaoke, the Monterey Café doesn't play around. In fact, they make it easy, offering the public the microphone every night of the week after 9 pm. They have a massive catalog of tunes, and you can sing along to the words buzzing across no less than nine different screens dotting the place. Throw in regular drink specials and stellar pizza, and there's no reason for Spokane's shower singers to go anywhere else.  9 N. Washington St., Spokane, Wash. • 868-0284

The Star Restaurant and Lounge If you're willing to get a little sweaty, Star Bar is the place to dance to endless karaoke nightly. Screens around the bar allow you to follow along, and pool in the back provides the perfect place to take a quick break from the craziness. On Thursdays, you're guaranteed to find a bunch of Zags singing their hearts out onstage, a $5 Long Island iced tea or 22-ounce Corona in hand.  1329 N. Hamilton St., Spokane, Wash. • 487-1530

Studio K Bar & Grill Studio K Bar & Grill moved from one South Hill strip mall to another and was renamed Studio K Bar on Regal. Serving stiff drinks and drafts to patrons for half a century, the bar mostly has been known as a karaoke hotspot. None of that has changed at the new location, with a karaoke station set up in the back of the narrow, high-ceilinged bar. 2810 E. 29th Ave., Spokane, Wash. • 534-9317

The Wave Island Sports Grill and Sushi Bar If you want to watch a game while also sipping on miso soup and eating a Philly cheesesteak, this Island sports bar fusing Hawaiian and American food is the place for you. The Wave's live music and late night karoake keep the place crowded until the early hours of the morning.  525 W. First Ave. , Spokane, Wash. • 747-2023
