Pets Policy:

At the Lincoln Jazz Cafe, we adore and appreciate our four-legged friends just as much as you do. However, due to the intimate size of our premises and to ensure the comfort and safety of all our guests, we have established the following policy regarding pets:

Pets Inside the Premises:

  • Pets are not permitted within the indoor areas of the Lincoln Jazz Cafe. This policy is in place to maintain a calm and enjoyable atmosphere for all our patrons.
  • The unpredictable reaction of pets to live jazz music and amplified sounds through our speakers is a concern. We want to create a stress-free environment for both our human and furry guests.

Outdoor Pet-Friendly Area:

  • We understand that pets are cherished members of your family, and we encourage you to bring them along to enjoy the outdoors.
  • Our outdoor seating area is pet-friendly and available during our regular working hours for your convenience.
  • Exceptions During Events: Please note that during special events and live performances, our outdoor area may be temporarily closed to guests and pets.

While we apologise for any inconvenience this policy may cause, we sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Our aim is to create a welcoming and enjoyable experience for all, both inside and outside the Lincoln Jazz Cafe. Thank you for your support and for choosing to be part of our jazz-loving community.
