COVID Vaccination Policy

We encourage all patrons to “Know Before You Go” and refer to the venue’s website prior to purchasing tickets and attending shows for all the most current information and protocols.

As we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, patrons and artists, Metro/smartbar will continue to require proof of full vaccination until further notice.

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 mask mandate update as of March 1, 2022, masks will no longer be required while in our venue, but will continue to be recommended.

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

We greatly appreciate you working with us to ensure the safety of all, especially our most vulnerable communities. Let’s continue to take care of ourselves and each other. Together, we can keep the music playing within our walls.
