(Updated November 18)

The show must go on! Boom Chicago continues but with a smaller capacity. See below for our complete corona procedures. We are very proud of them as they allow us to be open safely while still keeping the exciting Boom Chicago feeling.

We will sometimes run two or three shows on a night to accommodate more audience. Most shows are now 75 minutes with no intermission. If we have to adjust capacities or times we appreciate your understanding.

Due to Corona restrictions, our bar is temporarily closed.

Good news: You are allowed to bring your drinks! We will provide water, glasses, ice, and coolers and will also clean things up afterwards. This is as close as you will get to a bar over the next few weeks! The Roos Mini Market next door has a good selection of (cold) beer, wine and soft drinks. They are open until 20:00. You are allowed to enter Boom Chicago until 20:00 with your drinks.
We are charging a ‘good news surcharge’ of five euros per person to help offset the losses of lower capacities during these restrictions. Thank you in advance for your support of the arts.

If you would like to reschedule your tickets, we are happy to give you a gift card for shows in the future over the next year. We are not offering cash refunds if the show is not cancelled. If a show is cancelled by us or by upcoming government restrictions, we do offer the possibility of a cash refund. We think this is a fair policy and we hope you appreciate our logic.
Check our calendar to see what’s on. We will contact ticket holders of any cancelled shows if that happens. For requests regarding your reservations, please contact us by email at [email protected]

We hope to see you and your friends soon!
