xBk Code of Conduct
The owners and staff at xBk strive to create a safe, diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for everyone that walks through our doors. We know that we don’t always do it right, but we have made the commitment to always try to do better. This starts with us outlining our values and being open to hearing yours. Our job is to provide a great experience for the artists and patrons that come into our room. To that end, these are the things we hold to be important:
We want everyone that walks through our doors to feel safe no matter your race, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender, or otherwise. We welcome everyone and are committed to making sure you feel comfortable being the “you” that you are! We have a zero tolerance policy for bigotry, harassment or discrimination. We know not everyone holds the same views, but everyone came to xBk to have a good experience. Please just let people enjoy themselves.
And though it should be very self evident, please keep your hands to yourself. I promise, if a person doesn’t know you, they probably don’t want you touching them beyond a gentle tap to ask to get by.
Please be respectful to our staff. They work very hard to make sure you have the best possible live event experience possible. They are here to make sure you have a good time, but they are also human beings that deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Just because they are serving you doesn’t mean they are a servant.
Our staff is also here to ensure you feel safe. If you feel unsafe for any reason, please seek out the closest staff member and let us know. You should not have to endure harassment, bigotry, or unwanted comments.
We want you to have fun and enjoy your cocktails, but we do reserve the right to stop serving you if we can see you are significantly impaired. We’re not trying to be a fun hater, we just want to make sure you make it home safely so you can come back again. Also, if you’ve had too much to drink, don’t drive. It’s just not worth it. We’re happy to help you find a safe way home.
Please respect the space. People have to clean the place up so just don’t be super gross or destroy things. It’s not cool.
And finally, but certainly not least, we exist because artists choose to share their talents on our stage. We have great respect for the time, dedication, and work they put into their craft and we feel our patrons come to our venue because they share that same respect. If the show is a “listening” style show, please refrain from talking during the performance and turn off your cell phone. If it’s a loud show, we want you to dance and cheer and have a great time, but we also hope you choose to live in the experience. It’s fine to take a picture or two, but please give your attention to the stage, not to the your device. It’s distracting and do we REALLY go back and look at those blurry photos or selfies?
Please have fun. Please enjoy your experience. Please be kind.
