We specialize in fun, friendly karaoke, with professional grade lighting and sound systems, and a velvet rope VIP atmosphere—everyone’s a star at AJ’s!  We’ve even remodeled and added a private karaoke room that you can reserve for your own events!  AJ’s has thousands of songs from every genre for your karaoke needs. You can sing any style of music your heart desires. We update our catalog monthly with the top Billboard hits so the music is always current!  All of our music is legal, so your favorite artists are getting paid for their creations!  Come and see why AJ’s was voted CityView's "Best Local Place to Do Karaoke" for three years in a row.  MUST BE 21 TO ENTER.
