Our COVID-19 vaccine policy

As a small venue striving to reopen fully we want to make sure our performers, staff, and you remain as safe as possible while enjoying programming. That’s why we require all patrons to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to entry. Thank you for understanding!⁠

Effective immediately, all concerts and events at The Hideout will require proof of a full course of COVID-19 vaccination. Artists, performers, staff, and patrons must have a completed COVID-19 vaccination card, with their final dose at least fourteen days prior to the event.

What forms of vaccine proof are accepted?

Proof of vaccination may include a physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron’s ID.

Children under the age of 5

Children under the age of 5, who cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19, cannot attend events/shows at Hideout.

Where does our COVID-19 policy apply?

Our COVID-19 vaccine policy pertains to all events at The Hideout.

Mask policy

We require that patrons wear a mask while waiting in line to show their vaccine cards at the door, and at all times inside when not actively taking sips of their drinks.

Why is this policy necessary?

Taking these steps ensures the safety of our guests, staff, and the artists, and implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the virus.
