For everyone with dreams of taking the stage and belting out a song as lead singer of a band, get ready for your moment in the spotlight. CityWalk's Rising Star is not your typical karaoke club. Here when you grab the mic you're performing with a live band complete with real backup singers. Choose from an impressive number of song titles and rock out like a superstar, or croon your favorite country ballad, as you perform in front of a live audience.

Yes this is the best karaoke set up in town , however only if you prefer Country/ Western music . After a 3 or more hour wait you can sing your selection , but that's only after most people before you have chosen some Country Western song while their drunk friends with baseball caps dance till they drop on the...

Nice scenic location with plenty of bars and restaurants and plenty to do. With central band or group on near the lake overseeing Hard Rock Cafe.

My husband and I were staying at Universal resort for a couples get away . We ended up at this place on a Wednesday night! It was absolutely the most fun we've ever had at karaoke.

This place is the best place to go karaoke, they have a band and back up singers. The drinks are ok but I would recommend to do a pregame.

My 25-year-old daughter and I were at Universal Studios and happened to notice this karaoke place on our way through CityWalk. If you enjoy karaoke, it's way cooler to do it on-stage with a live 5-piece band, 2 female backup singers, and a pro sound and light system. No cover charge if you have a multi-day Universal Studios pass. We... More

My Husband and I stopped in to see the place. It was a stage! Many of the performers were great! We really enjoyed ourselves and since we were really not into the club scene this place was perfect for a night out. No we did not actually participate but we sang along!

Travelling from Manchester, England, I was admittedly reluctant to spend my night in City Walk in a karaoke bar and I couldn't have been more wrong. With the live band, it doesn't feel like a karaoke bar. We initially went into the bar for a quick drink to see what it was all about and ended up spending over 2... More

Amazing!! I love this place, great atmosphere and entertainment. We were able to take teens in on a week night for a birthday celebration which was great. I loved karaoke so it suited me !! This place will be in my plans for my next visit! And should be renamed 5 star!!!!
