WE ARE OPEN AND BACK IN ACTION (if you're vaccinated)!

In light of the recent rise in variant cases, we will now be requiring proof of full COVID-19 vaccination at entry. We are committed to keeping our team, our customers, and our city safe, and given the nature of our business (which involves singing in a small space), we feel that this is the right thing to do. All walk-ins and anyone in a group with a private-room reservation should be prepared to show one of the following:
- Your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card
- A printed or digital photo of the front and back of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card
- A printed copy or screenshot of your COVID-19 vaccination record page from Rhode Island’s Vaccine Record Lookup Portal
Not yet vaccinated and want to sing karaoke? Get your shot! Click HERE to find a clinic.
- Air purifiers with HEPA H13 filters are in all rooms and have a "clean air delivery rate" to clean all air within 30 minutes. 
- 30-minute time buffers are maintained between room reservations to allow our staff to fully sanitize each room between parties and for air to circulate and be fully filtered. 
- Disposable microphone covers are being offered for all microphones.
Stay safe!

Lounge Area

Our lounge area is perfect for smaller groups, solos, or exhibitionists. Sit and relax with a cocktail and if the timing feels right, request a song at the bar. Karaoke in the lounge is $1 per song. Not much of a singer? Sit back and watch strangers give it their best shot.

Private Rooms

Please use our online booking system at right to reserve a private karaoke room. Walk-ins are welcome but we do recommend reservations, especially for weekends and large groups. We only have 5 rooms and they tend to book quickly. Cancellations do occur, so you can always check in the night of. All rooms have a one-hour minimum.

The Boombox is Providence’s first and only karaoke lounge. Taking inspiration from the popular karaoke “boxes” in Korea and Japan, The Boombox is the perfect destination for birthdays, celebrations, or anyone looking for an alternative to another night at the corner bar. Located at The Dean Hotel, The Boombox offers both a lounge area as well as 5 private rooms.

In the lounge, you can sit quietly with a drink or, if the sake’s got you feeling bold, belt out a tune in front of your friends (and strangers). If you and your crew want your own space to let loose, book a private room by the hour and have complete control of your night. Each room has its own karaoke system complete with iPad control, TV, speakers, and thousands of frequently-updated songs to choose from.

Our beverage selection includes beer, wine, bubbly, sodas, sake, and sake-based cocktails. Our delicious menu is a collaboration with the ever-talented local celebrity mixologist, Willa Van Nostrand, of Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails.
