Karaoke Bars in Chicago That Allow Under 21s

Attending a karaoke bar with friends is always going to be a good time. Unfortunately, they usually serve alcohol which means they tend to be strict about those under 21 entering the premises.

Luckily, we’ve found a couple of karaoke bars that allow under 21s to enter. You should be aware though, that you will probably have to book a private room away from the main bar and you may not be able to use their onsite bar at all.

We’ve highlighted the rules regarding age restrictions for each bar, but you should double check you’ll be allowed to enter before booking anything.
