karaoke in key west?

Looking for karaoke in key west. Also considering the drag show and the bar or haunted tour. Anyone done these? Any local hangouts. Would like some place not too commercial.

I have heard that the karaoke at Bobby's Monkey Bar on Simonton is really fun. I think Desiray (a drag queen) hosts it. It is supposed to be a blast and mostly locals. Also go see a drag show. I like the show upstairs at the 801. They have a show at 9 & 11 I think. These shows are interactive and very fun. This is not the show for you if you are shy. I have also seen Broadway 3 Ways at the cabaret at the La Te Da. Also a great show. This is a very classy event, kind of like a mimi Broadway show, but lots of fun. If you want to try some off the beaten path places, go to BO's fish wagon for lunch (it's over by the harborwalk). If you like Irish Pub's, try Finnegans Wake (local spot). Have a drink on The Afterdeck at Louie's. If you like Cuban food, have lunch at The Dennis Pharmacy. It has a little eatery in it with great local food and color.

There's at least one Karaoke bar...


My two fav local hangouts are Pepe's on Caroline Street and El Meson de Pepe on Wall Street. And the Sands Beach Club on Simonton. And Kelly's on Whitehead. (How many was that?)

SKB, I would love to hear about the haunted tour. What about it didn't you like? Did you do the one at the La Concha?

Hi TikiGirl- We've been on numerous ghost tours in different cities and states that were very interesting and moved right along from haunted place to haunted place BUT the tour we took was at the La Concha- $18 per person, supposed to last for 90 minutes and at the end of 60 minutes, we had moved from the parking lot of the hotel to the parking lot of the funeral home. Maybe it was actually our tour guide that was the problem because he told the stories the way molasses flows in the winter time. Another guide may have been better- I don't know. It wasn't just my hubby and I that felt this way because out of a group of 15 strangers, 7 of us bailed at the 60 minute mark. I must say that I did go back to the hotel lobby to complain and was given a full refund. :) P.S. He spent 15 minutes teaching us to yell "You're doomed!" at anyone who walked by the group.

Thanks for details, SKB. I was going to try it on my upcoming trip, but I think I will skip it. More time for drinks and fun is fine with me!

2 Friends Patio bar and restaurant has karaoke also. We went on the ghost tour a few years ago. It was a fun way to spend a few hours. It even managed to be a bit spooky.
