We can’t think of a lot of places in Miami where you can belt out Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Panic! At The Disco, and Paramore at the top of your lungs. But the city actually has its own emo party that runs all night long and it’s held every third Monday of every month.
Underneath the shiny disco ball, blaring speakers, and vintage posters of bands and singers, hit the stage at Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar for a whirlwind of emotions and nostalgia. Will you even need to look at the teleprompter since you’re bound to remember all of the lyrics?
The fun to put on the most heartbreaking performance of the night at this karaoke spot starts at 9 p.m. and on the special nights, Sweet Caroline even offers $10 “Cute Without the E” cocktails (the best way to beat stage fright) until the clock strikes midnight. If no one sings “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence, then something is seriously wrong.
There aren’t any private karaoke rooms, unlike other spots you may be familiar with. But in our honest opinion, having the rowdy audience sing along with you makes the experience all that much better. It’s important to remember that you won’t be the only one there looking to relive the glory days and have an unforgettable night.
Sweet Caroline actually opened in 2018 and last month marked their 4th year anniversary. There’s normally thousands of songs to choose from, so whatever title or genre you’re thinking of, there’s plenty of choices for you throughout the night. Just make sure you tell the DJ what tune you would like to sing as early as you can before a long line of requests start to form!
Sweet Caroline is located at 1111 SW First Ave., #107, Miami, FL 33130.
