I highly advise out-of-towners that like to sing kareoke to stay away from this bar. The KJ has no rotation...If you show up at midnight and tip her a $20....she'll take your money....but she probably wont let you sing (because there are ""too many singers in front of you - aka - the 20 people who have already sang, but didn't tip because they are her regulars and she will put them ahead of you regardless"" ) ...she'll pocket your tip and let someone who has already sang 3 or 4 times go up before you...If I was a regular there, I'd be there every weeekend becauase I'd be able to sing. I worked in the service industry for 10 years before owning my succesful bar (out of town - Eugene) and I will tell you that we thrive on our regulars..but we ALWAYS give the newbies a spot...ESPECIALLY when they take care of our our KJ and / or bartenders (In this review, I'm not talking about the KJ alone, the bartenders were unfriendly, slow, and poured extrodinarily weak drinks)...we take care of customers new and old...and The Galaxty does not. If you like kareoke, when you're only in town for the holidays...this is NOT the bar for you...even if you waste your money tipping the KJ, she wont put you up...I strongly advise you to look into other spots...Chopsticks is awesome...and they have a great rotation (P.S..Galaxy is the ONLY kareoke bar that I've EVER heard of that doesn't have a rotation) that they're regulars agree with, because everyone gets a chance to sing...especially with tipping, but either way..you'll get you're chance..same with Suki's on 4th...I love regulars, don't get me wrong...but I've learned that if a bar wants to strive, you let everybody enjoy themselves...take care of those that take care of you...I lived in Portland for many, many years, and I would NEVER, never ever reccomend this bar...
Pros: You might be able to find a seat - maybe
Cons: Weak drinks, you wont be able to sing if after midnight, taking care of staff does NOTHING for the service yopu
