If a show or event is “All-Ages”, you do not need an I.D. to enter; however, if the show or event has an age restriction, you will need a VALID government issued, non-expired, photo I.D.. The same applies if you wish to purchase and consume alcohol. An I.D. is absolutely necessary regardless of your age to procure alcohol. If you are caught buying, drinking or even holding alcohol without appropriate identification you will be ejected from the venue. Age restrictions for each event/show can be found at www.theottobar.com

The Ottobar does not have a specific dress code. You just need to be dressed and wear shoes. No clothing with wording or slogans that may be deemed offensive, homophobic, racist, etc will be permitted into the venue. We reserve the right to turn away patrons who may be wearing such items without issuing a refund. On occasion, spiked jewelry including but not limited to wallet chains, bullet belts, etc may be prohibited.

We allow “re-entry” for patrons who are ages 21+ and have proper I.D.. We do not allow “re-entry” for patrons under the age of 21. If you are under the age of 21 & leave the venue, you will not be allowed re-entry.

Unfortunately, no. All smoking, both traditional and electronic is prohibited inside of the Ottobar. Failure to comply may result in ejection from the venue. There is a designated smoking area outside for patrons age 21+ only.
