The city of Chicago, and state of Illinois, currently require masks be worn indoors (when not actively drinking). Masks are optional in our outside areas: the rooftop deck and the front patio.

Beginning Tuesday August 3, 2021, Sidetrack resumed requiring patrons show proof that you’ve been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, or show a verifiable negative test result taken within the last three days, to enter. This policy will continue until further notice.

Proof of being fully vaccinated is a physical vaccination card or a picture on your phone of your vaccination card or other electronic proof.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adapt to new rules and policies for public safety.

OUTspoken!
