It might take a few cocktails or beers, but once you are up in the spotlight of a karaoke bar, you just have to belt it out. The Aspen Lounge Lake Tahoe at the Horizon Casino Resort in Stateline (located in the Tahoe area) offers not only karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights at 9 p.m., but also nightly drink specials seven days a week, a pool table, dance floor and some cool music by bands like Deep Fryed Mojo and Trey Stone.
The best thing? There's no cover.

The Aspen Lounge is conveniently located in the middle of the casino, so you can hit the slots and game tables before hitting the karaoke stage. The drink specials at the lounge go all night and include cocktails, draft beers, bottle beers and margaritas. There is no food at the lounge, but you can fill up at the nearby Town Square Buffet, where you can get specialty salads, gourmet pastries and desserts for only $12.95 for dinner.
The music for the karaoke is chosen from a machine by the singers and everything from country and classic to rock and '80s music is available. During the weekend, the crowds get a little wild, but the dance floor is still a great location to hang out during a winter snowstorm in the mountains.
