One-part next-level karaoke experience, one-part concert, and all parts thrilling! Introducing Cabaret Karaoke—an electrifying evening for karaoke enthusiasts, first-time singers, and live-music lovers alike!

 

Held exclusively at Feinstein’s at the Nikko, Cabaret Karaoke invites the audience to create the ultimate setlist for a party-like concert that stars the brightest new singing sensation in San Francisco—you!

 

Once seated inside San Francisco’s premier performance nightclub, you’ll get to choose the songs you want to perform from a decades-spanning songbook that features over 140 hits and artists such as Sinatra, The Temptations, Journey, and Adele. On the spot, those songs are arranged to create an exciting, mix of pop, rock, standards, dance-hits, and duets that has the audience cheering!

 

When your song is chosen, you’ll be invited to take the spotlight, step-up your karaoke game, and belt out your chosen tune while being backed by a rocking five-piece band made up of some of the Bay Area’s top musicians.

 

Under the guidance of legendary Bay Area bandleader Dick Bright, you’ll own the Feinstein’s spotlight and become the star you were always meant to be!

 

 

 

Cabaret Karaoke FAQ:

 

How is Cabaret Karaoke different from other karaoke destinations?

Not only does Cabaret Karaoke provide the rare opportunity to sing live on stage with an incredible five-piece band, particular attention is paid to the order and flow of songs submitted, creating a truly curated and original concert-like setlist at every event. Whether you’re on stage or in the audience, Cabaret Karaoke is the best party in town!  

 

Am I guaranteed a chance to sing if I submit a song?

We work hard to make sure that everyone who submits a song gets a chance in the spotlight. Time permitting, singers will get additional opportunities to perform. In the rare occasion the evening ends before your song is called, you’ll be invited back as our guest with priority stage placement for future Cabaret Karaoke events.

 

How are songs / singers chosen?

Song choice slips are waiting to be filled out at your table and collected by Feinstein’s staff throughout the evening. As the hosts builds and evolves the concert-like setlist from all submitted slips, song order drives the singing order.

 

Can I submit multiple songs?
Yes—song choice slips have room for multiple choices.  

 

Can I bring my own songs / sheet music?

Unfortunately, we are only able to include songs that are included on that evening’s songbook.

 

Is the song list the same every time?

Our incredible house-band, Club Karaoke, is committed to adding songs for every event. Additionally, we’ll be holding theme nights, such as 80s and Broadway nights for upcoming events.
