Effective immediately and in accordance with Emergency Executive Order 2022-3 issued by Mayor Carter, all patrons, staff, and generally anyone setting foot inside Amsterdam Bar & Hall will be required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth “at all times when social distancing of at least six feet is not maintained,” except when eating or drinking.
Vaccination & Testing Policy
Q: What is Amsterdam Bar & Hall’s current COVID-19 policy for ticketed events?
A: To attend all ticketed events at Amsterdam Bar & Hall guests will be required to provide proof of either a full course of their COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of negative results from a test taken within 72 hours prior to the event.
Acceptable documentation demonstrating the above include:
- Physical copies or photos of vaccination cards (demonstrating at least 14 days have elapsed since the final dose), accompanied by valid photo ID
- Immunization record apps (Docket, Clear, Mayo Clinic, etc.), accompanied by valid photo ID
- Negative test results in the name of the ticket holder and less than 72 hours old (from the likes of Vault, etc.), accompanied by valid photo ID.
Q: Do at-home rapid tests count as acceptable proof for a 72-hour negative test?
A: No. Effective Jan 5, 2022 Amsterdam Bar & Hall has ceased to accept at-home/rapid tests as proof of a negative test result.
Q: Where can I get a free COVID-19 test or vaccine ahead of the show?
A: For free community testing sites in Minnesota, look here; or find vaccine options here.
For free community testing sites in Wisconsin, look here; or find vaccine options here.
Q: What about All Ages shows? How does my fully vaccinated kid attend, given the photo ID requirements?
A: In the case of All Ages shows, we accept school IDs and are available to answer questions about individual circumstances, including other identifying documents that might suffice for minors stuck between a rock and a hard place. Email us at: info [at] amsterdambarandhall.com.
NOTE: This constitutes Amsterdam’s baseline, standard COVID-19 policy. Some events/artists may have more stringent requirements (e.x.: Not accept 72-hour negative tests), and that these policies may change at any time; when such instances arise, the venue will make every effort to promptly notify ticket holders of changes.
For all ticketing information, please see Amsterdam’s Ticketing page.
Q: What is the age restriction of your shows?
A: It varies on a show-by-show basis, and is typically determined by artist management. Find each show’s age restriction on its individual listing on Amsterdam’s Events page.
Q: If I do not meet the age restriction of the show, is there a way I can still attend?
A: Unfortunately, no. All folks attending the show will be required to provide an ID to confirm that they meet the age requirement. We do not allow escorts from parents or guardians to attend the show. These are the house rules and they apply to all shows, no matter who the promoter is.
Q: Will I need an ID to attend an event at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall?
A: Yes, you will need to present your Photo ID to attend all 16+, 18+, and 21+ events. Valid forms of ID include:

- State-issued ID Cards (with photo)
- State-issued Learner’s Permits

Q: What makes an ID “valid”?
A: “Valid” means it is any of the above forms of ID, was issued to you, and is neither expired, clipped, nor VOIDed.

Q: Are your shows seated?
A: Our shows are primarily standing room only. Though the venue does have some built-in seating throughout the room, it may not always be available to show-goers. When the built-in seating is available during a show, it will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
Q: How will I know if a show is seated?
A: If a show is seated, it should be noted on the individual event listing on our Events page. Seated shows are still sold as general admission and are not assigned or reserved for specific patrons or parties. Seating is available on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved ahead of time.
Q: Where is your main entrance?
A: We have two entrances! The easiest door to spot is located on Wabasha. We also have an entrance on 6th Street that is fully ADA accessible; for the latter, look for a pair of red doors tucked inside a vestibule. In certain show-related circumstances, signage may direct guests to use one entrance over another.
Q: What if I have a medical condition/special circumstance that requires accommodation?
A: Amsterdam Bar & Hall is an accessible venue. There is a motorized door and ramp leading directly into the venue located at our 6th Street entrance. For specific accommodations at shows, please contact us via: info [at] amsterdambarandhall.com.
