The lamplighter is a lot of fun and certainly not your run of the mill karaoke bar. There is no sitting in booths watching in pain as your friends make fools of themselves at the mic... instead an entire dance floor of people will dance around while you sing (good or bad) and no one will really pay attention to how good you are. There is usually ~ $5 cover which is well worth it.

The Lamplighter is a karaoke bar unlike any other... people dance to the karaoke sang whether good or terrible and its a lot of fun. Expect a small cover and for it to be pretty crowded.

the Lamplighter in Mission Hills/Hillcrest is a lot of fun. They usually charge ~ $5 cover but its worth it. Bring a load of friends, have a few drinks and enjoy dancing the night away to karaoke!

Doesn't matter which, after years of not going, the Lamplighter still shines - great atmosphere and great people and great service - keep up the greatness!

Great dive karaoke joint. It is a bit crowded for my likes on the weekend but the weekdays are great. Drinks are cheap and if you sing karaoke this is the place to go.

If you're in the mood for a crowded Karoke bar with poor layout, then the Lamplighter is for you. This bar can be entertaining, but only really durring off hours.
