Sound Bar Karaoke


Sound Bar is a 7 day a week live rock concert! If you’re not looking at the stage, you’d think you were listening to a live band or the radio. We hang there, so we can assure you that the singers are top-notch. Sound Bar is Galveston’s only full-time karaoke bar. Located at 2411 Mechanic, they are in the middle of the Downtown Historical District, The Strand.  And that means we can rock and roll all night long…or at least until 2am. The bar has a good selection of local beers and there is a big smoking lounge outside.

Buckshots Saloon

buckshots-bar-nightlife-taxiTotally reminiscent of the famous Gilley’s in Houston, Buckshots has a huge dance floor and a mechanical bull you can break your back on. There’s a $5 cover here and, if memory serves, women get in free. This is definitely a pickup bar and if that’s what you are looking for, you won’t be disappointed.
