Private Events

We love private parties! Birthdays, bachelorette/bachelor parties, surprise parties, holiday events, team building, street festivals…bring it on! To get you started on your planning, here are a few answers to our most commonly asked questions about having your very own Kostume Karaoke event…

Can I have my party at your venue?

Kostume Karaoke is an event that happens regularly at two different venues in Washington DC. We do not have a venue of our own and we are not ourselves a venue. We have great relationships with our venues, and we love to bring them business, so if one of these bars can meet your needs, we can help make that happen. Each place has it’s own fee structure for private use and we can help negotiate that. We also have connections with additional bars and restaurants of different sizes and styles around town, and we are happy to come to you!

Ok, got it. Kostume Karaoke is mobile. Awesome. But I don’t have a sound system. Can you bring one?

Sure! We can rent a PA for an additional fee. Of course, if your venue has their own sound, that would be great (easier for us, less costly for you).

How many people can I have at my party?

As many as the venue can comfortably hold, so it varies. It’s unlikely that a busy bar will be able to host a private party of only a handful of people during peak times (i.e. Fri/Sat nights) but contact us with your details and we can help you find the right spot for the fun!

Can you do karaoke for my 8/12/14/under 21 year old child/friend’s birthday party? 

Sorry, since we work primarily in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, this tends to present problems. Our song list is not at all censored. If you have one youngster who is going to come along to the party with his parent who is related to the guest of honor (for example), we might be able to work that out. Or if we are coming to your home, the rules are obviously a bit different. But as a general rule, no, we don’t do kid’s birthday parties and our venues don’t allow underage individuals.

What about the costumes?

If you’ve ever been to Kostume Karaoke, you know, it’s just better with a fabulous outfit. If you haven’t, well, you’ll just have to take our word for it. We’ll bring the costumes, you bring the style!

What are your rates?

That depends on a number of factors, including when, where, how long, and how far. We have a 2 hr minimum…less than that doesn’t really work for a karaoke party. Contact for a quote.
