The private salons are rooms which can be hired for a certain time for various purposes, such as having fun or parties, away from observation. Most of Academy City's students live in regulated student dorms and being under the eye of adults during classes and after school can be stressful. The private salons are like secret hideouts which can be bought so students can do things without being observed, though teachers and guardians aren't too fond of them due to the setup having the danger of being one wrong step away from being a hotbed for sexual crimes.
Information regarding usage of the rooms is kept secret as it would defeat the entire point of hiring them in the first place. A member ID is required to enter the building where the salons are located. Members with two-star membership are able to reserve individual rooms on a yearly contact.
Like at a karaoke bar, food can be ordered from the rooms over an internal line, and the rooms have a refrigerator. The rooms also have a television, with satellite and internet connection as well as a video game system installed next to it, and shelves with various board and card games.
