4) End time

5) Name

Q: Why do you need my credit card to make a reservation? Cancellation policy?

A: We ask for your credit card to prevent late cancellations and no-shows. We ask that you make any cancellations at least 48 hours prior to your party, otherwise Lincoln Karaoke reserves the right to charge you for one hour plus tax.

Q: Do you guys charge a deposit to hold the room?

A: No.

Q: How do I check in?

A: Just go to the bar and check in with the name you used to reserve your room. We will ask to hold a physical credit card for the duration of your party.  This does not have to be the same credit card you used to make the reservation, this is just to protect against any incidental damage or theft.  We will always give you an opportunity to pay however you choose at the end.  Please have your ID ready when you pick up your card.

Q: Why does Lincoln Karaoke need to hold my credit card while I’m in the room?

A: We hold one card per party to cover any discrepancies at the end of the evening, such as missing or damaged equipment.  We also reserve the right to use this card to pay your bill if you forget to pay before you leave.

Q: How and when do I pay?

A: You check out at the bar at the end of your party. You can pay cash or credit.

Q: Will you tell me when my time is up?

A: Your party lasts as long as you actually stay in the room, regardless of the timeframe you reserved.  You are responsible for keeping track of your own time.  Lincoln Karaoke will ask you to leave only if there is another party reserved after yours.

Q: I made my reservation for two hours, but I don’t want to leave!  Can I extend?

A: We’ll do everything we can to make sure you can stay as long as you like.  In the event that a later party is booked in your room, we may have to ask your party to leave on-time.  That’s why it’s best to let us know you’d like to extend as early as possible.

Q: Can I purchase alcohol there?

A: Yes, we have two full bars with a variety of liquor, cocktails, wines, soju, bottled beers, and draft beers.

Q: Are you BYOB? Any outside food or drinks allowed?

A: We do NOT allow any outside alcohol, beverages or food. If you have anything, you can check it in with us and pick it up at the end of your party.

Q: I am celebrating a birthday / special occasion. Can I bring in a cake?

A: Yes, you can bring in your own cake or dessert.

Q: Do people in my party pay for their own food and drinks?

A: It’s up to you. Most parties have everyone take care of their own drinks. If you want to pay for some or all of your guests’ orders, just ask us; we have plenty of options.

Q: Parking?

A: Lincoln Karaoke has a limited number of parking spaces in the alley behind our building, about 9 or 10 spots on the blacktop.  We also have free, unmetered parking on our block of Lincoln Avenue.  Be aware of neighborhood permit-only parking on nearby side streets - you may get a ticket if you park there. Do not park behind BBCN bank, at Hubs or in the parking lot of any other business. You WILL be towed.

Q: Are you only private room karaoke? Do you have any open mic karaoke?

A: We are only private room karaoke. There is no other kind of karaoke outside of the rooms.
