Rock Bar & Karaoke in Auckland ticks off all the boxes for a great karaoke spot. 

Firstly, they offer some really affordable drinks, which is always a win. And they’re open late (until 1:00 am), so you can keep the good times rolling into the early hours of the next day.

The whole place has this cool Japanese vibe going on, with corridors that make you feel like you’re wandering through a traditional Japanese garden. But hey, while they embraced the Japanese aesthetic, they didn’t limit themselves when it came to song choices. 

You’ll find tunes in all sorts of languages – English, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, Spanish – you name it. It’s perfect, especially if you’ve got a diverse group of friends or if you’re tourists looking for a taste of home.

You can belt out your favorite tunes either in the main area or in one of their private karaoke rooms. It’s just $30 per hour for a party of four in the private rooms, and then it’s an extra 5 bucks per person per hour after that (up to 10 people).

Now, Rock Bar & Karaoke gets pretty crowded, especially on weekends, but the good news is they’re open for reservations. So, make sure to give them a call to secure a spot!
