You poor sheltered karaoke person. The bar you speak of is the worst, or at least one of the worst karaoke bars in St. Louis. Terrible song selection, terrible host, terrible atmosphere.

Readers' Choice: Mike Talayna's Juke Box Restaurant
There are bars that offer karaoke, and then there are karaoke bars the kind of place where it's always amateur night, where you too can be the star for three minutes at a time. Mike Talayna's Juke Box Restaurant is that kind of place, where the karaoke flows until 3 a.m. every night and the bar is peopled with would-be crooners and wannabe divas. Talayna's does serve food, but you came to sing and to be serenaded, not chomp on pizza and wings music, after all, is the food of love. The club's mirrored walls and red-and-blue neon lighting give the impression of a low-rent strip club, but the décor is a perfect fit: Karaoke is like a mirror, reflecting your true essence back to yourself and to your adoring audience. The song selection runs deep, so pick your favorite barnburner or heartbreaker, take the stage and grip the mic like you mean it.
