For everyone with dreams of taking the stage and belting out a song as lead singer of a band, get ready for your moment in the spotlight. CityWalk's Rising Star is not your typical karaoke club. Here when you grab the mic you're performing with a live band complete with real backup singers. Choose from an impressive number of song titles and rock out like a superstar, or croon your favorite country ballad, as you perform in front of a live audience.

My Husband and I stopped in to see the place. It was a stage! Many of the performers were great! We really enjoyed ourselves and since we were really not into the club scene this place was perfect for a night out. No we did not actually participate but we sang along! If at City walk you must check this... More

Had a brilliant night here on a Saturday and Thursday during my stay at the Hard rock hotel. However the Thursday night it was pretty quiet at 11pm when we went in sat at a table, within minutes we were told to leave by staff as the table sat more than 2. The bar was really quiet and I agreed... More

Travelling from Manchester, England, I was admittedly reluctant to spend my night in City Walk in a karaoke bar and I couldn't have been more wrong. With the live band, it doesn't feel like a karaoke bar. We initially went into the bar for a quick drink to see what it was all about and ended up spending over 2... More

Amazing!! I love this place, great atmosphere and entertainment. We were able to take teens in on a week night for a birthday celebration which was great. I loved karaoke so it suited me !! This place will be in my plans for my next visit! And should be renamed 5 star!!!!

Super clean super safe-- I love City Walk-- you can putt putt- movies-- shop and eat at some amazing places-- Blue Man Group is here along with Hard Rock Theater-- so there is something for everyone-- I truly think I like Universal better than Disney now-- get VIP parking and you are right by the security check in

City walk is great and fun if you want to party all night (until 2am) but Rising Star is a really chill place. You go, sit down, order drinks and enjoy the show. Saturday nights are definitely the most fun. Every time I come to Orlando I make sure to take a night just for Rising Star. I fully recommend... More
