Our COVID-19 vaccine policy

As a small venue striving to remain open, we want to make sure to keep our performers, staff, and you as safe as possible while enjoying programming. That’s why we require all patrons to show proof of up-to-date vaccination 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 vaccinationArtists, 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, a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron’s ID, or an online record such as the one available in IDPH’s Vax Verify portal (sign up here!).

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 strongly encourage patrons to wear a mask at all times inside when not actively taking sips of their drinks, even while seated.

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.
