You’ve heard them belting out the entire Frozen soundtrack around the house time and time again (and again, and again) so you know your little ones love to sing out loud. Luckily, Portland is home to more than one all-ages karaoke bar which means you can give your kids a chance to star in their own soundtrack. Read on for our top spots for karaoke with the tots.

From 5-8 p.m. on Sundays, it’s family time at this Chinese restaurant and karaoke lounge. Here, your little singers won’t just be entertaining the others in your party, but instead they’ll be rocking the entire room. Expect to pay a $5 cover for the chance to take part of this raucous family fun. Added bonus: you can eat dinner right there!

When you think of private karaoke in Portland, this is the place. And, yes, they let kids in but only before 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and before 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. If mom or dad want to enjoy an adult beverage, you’ll have to leave another adult with them while you step out into the bar: no drinks are allowed in the room when minors are present. Make a reservation online. $5/person and up.
