The Best Places for Open Mic in Hoboken and Jersey City

Vanessa Vanacore

One thing making a major resurgence post covid is karaoke and open mic comedy themed nights.

Restaurants and bars are starting to schedule special open mic and performance nights and we wanted to put together a list of some of the best, and most entertaining options in Hoboken and Jersey City right now.


  1. Green Rock | 70 Hudson Street

Starting back in the winter of 2020, Green Rock decided to introduce Karaoke Thursday’s. Thursday is already a fairly busy night for downtown bars like Green Rock, but when you throw karaoke into the mix it gets even wilder. Expect a rowdy crowd, tons of napkin throwing, and half priced drinks all night.

2. Mulligan’s Pub | 159 1st Street

Mulligan’s isnt just your typical run of the mill sport’s bar. They also offer a comedy night every Tuesday and Thursday. These shows run for about two hours and are always free.

3. House of ‘Que | 340 Sinatra Drive

You can find one of the best karaoke nights in the city at House of ‘Que every Wednesday starting at 7pm and with a stage overlooking the entire bar and restaurant, you’ll surely feel like a star.

  1. Grove Square Bar | 116 Newark Ave

Located conveniently close to the Path Train, Grove Square offers an excellently executed karaoke night in their brightly lit basement. These nights are only offered during the Summer so make sure to take advantage now while you still can.
