The Mint is a hotspot for singing, great cocktails and a unique experience known worldwide.


Est. 1993

The Mint Karaoke Lounge, a San Francisco institution and once a steakhouse and a piano bar continued its evolution to karaoke in 1993. Since then, The Mint has grown to become one of the world's best known karaoke lounges. Visitors worldwide often come to the Mint straight from the airport, and hotel concierges advise their guests that for karaoke there is no other. It is the favorite haunt of many friendly locals who make a point of dropping by a few times a week.

The Mint is a full service bar with a large selection of domestic and imported beers, both bottled and on tap. It has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There are no cover charges or song charges and, for a big city lounge, beverages are very reasonably priced.

Selected the "Best Karaoke Lounge in the Bay Area" by the Bay Guardian, "Peoples Choice Award" by the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as numerous other awards, The Mint has been featured on CNN Headline News, KPIX Channel 5 in San Francisco, VIACOM Cable Channel 35, and was recently the subject of a yet to be released documentary about karaoke.
