Ego's is one of Austin's hidden gems, and that's how they'd like to keep it.

First of all, it's virtually impossible to find. It's located under the office building that shares its address and sits in the center of said building's parking lot. But once you find it, you'll be welcomed into a world of seedy dive bar magic with some of the greatest patrons and friendliest bartenders you'll meet in Austin.

The National Karaoke League meets here some weeknights, but the rest of the nights are fair game for you to take the stage and pretend you're Josh Groban for a hot minute. Ask if there's a theme night, and tipping your KJ just might get you bumped higher on the list.

Either way, make sure to get there early to stake out your spot and sign up before the flood of regulars get there. And don't forget to support everyone who gets up on stage to keep the goodwill flowing.
