Dad's Karaoke!!!. Here's the deal people.... If you want to go to a place that is hosting Karaoke.... Dad's is the place to be.... Plain and Simple... The bar staff is absolutely amazing.... personable and exciting.... the owners are really down to earth... and i also enjoy the two drink minimun that they have there.... it helps with the cheap karaoke junkies that drink nothing but tap water of crowding up the rotation with horrible versions of the ever so popular "journey" or "survivor"... the Karaoke hosts are amazing as well.... even though they have had a few changes in personnel.... the more familiar hosts are always a breath of fresh air (i.e. Mike and Jared).... with promises of some interior upgrades..... dads will continue to be on top of my list to go and sing the night away...
Great Fun. dad's has the feel of that old T.V. show Cheers..Many good times there.... as there are for you too...GO !!!
Needs a new DJ. Dad's rocks, but the DJ Mike needs to go! Unless you're a girl willing to flirt with him plan on sitting for hours between song rotations. Unlike other (more professional) DJs Mike doesn't keep track of rotations - especially as the night goes on. The bar staff, owners and establishment are great. It's a fun, small neighborhood bar to be able to hang out in.
Dad's needs to get rid of DJ MIke.
They need to get rid of DJ Mike. He's horrible, pompous and cant run sound worth a dang.
If a singer is better than he is, he turns the singers mike down or even off. The ones who tip him he cranks up the mikes, no matter how horrible the singer is. He's rude, crude. He hits up on any woman who is willing to even say Hi to him.
He's a professional, but it is not an entertainer or a karaoke HOST. Hosting doesn't mean you're the star. It means you're just a host. The more he drinks, the more he shifts the singer rotations.
I'm sure more singers would be willing to stay or even return if he weren't doing the gigs on the weekends. Someone leaving the bar means they're spending money elsewhere... and keeping customers happy is what customer service is all about. So folks go elsewhere and business - and money - goes elsewhere.
DAD'S IS A DIVE. Nice, friendly people. Good music selection, but a little smokey and raggedy. The super cool fat chicks were a riot, and the unlevel floors made me trip a few times. But everyone helped me up when I needed it. Don't use the bathroom because the toilets don't work and the ceiling leak might make you miss the bowl if you've had a few. In desperate need of upgrades and a hotter crowd. Dad's was a dive!
Fun for a group of friends!.
They've changed management just this past year, so if you've been there a long time ago you may want to try it again.
It's a real cozy, family-run karaoke bar (they have karaoke every night). The owners are extremely nice, and the drinks are very reasonably priced. I'm a college student, so it's always nice to take a break from the wild bars and 120 degree clubs for a laid-back bar to hang out with some friends.
Their karaoke selection is vast! The feedback on the mic is almost non-existent. The set-up is very open, and the ambiance is pretty accepting. Definitely a fun, hidden jewel in San Antonio. Oh, and they have great0 happy hour deals (4-7pm Monday-Friday).
Best Place to Karaoke. I've seen a good number of karaoke bars in my time but this one is definitely the best in town. The Dj's keep the rotations fair and fast. They have lots of good songs and on any night you can hear people sing country, rock, Sinatra.. pretty much anything. I like their music because they have some country songs I could never find at other karaoke places. Definitely worth checking out sometime.
Great Karaoke 7 nights a week!.
