We are so grateful to be back to doing what we love, with the folks we love doing it with. As we continue with our reopening, we strive to place an emphasis on keeping our patrons and staff safe and secure.

With this duty in mind, smartbar will continue to implement a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for all patrons, staff and artists who attend our events.

All will be asked to present proof of being fully vaccinated (with final dose administered no less than 14 days prior to date of arrival) and a government-issued photo ID at the door. A clear and legible photocopy, or photo of your vaccination card on your phone, will be accepted. Additionally, we encourage Illinois residents to register their vaccination status on the IDPH Immunization Portal for quick and easy reference.

Alongside this, with the recent CDPH (Chicago Dept. of Public Health) mandate as of August 20, 2021, masks will now be required while enjoying indoor events in public settings. Similar to previous CDC mandates, patrons may remove masks while actively drinking.

Please note that these policies are subject to change based on city and state guidelines.

We value our fans more than words can tell, and we greatly appreciate you working with us to ensure the safety of all, especially our most vulnerable communities. Together, we can keep the music playing within our walls.
