What are your ID requirements?
Everyone, upon entering The Bishop, is required to have on their person state or federally issued photo ID, which must be current and not expired. Your student ID doesn’t count. Bring something with your birth date on it. YES, you must bring ID even if you are under 21. You will be refused entry without it.
Why are some shows 18+ or others 21+?
We try to hold 18+ events when we can. However, due to the required security and expense it’s not feasible for every event to be 18+, only when the demand is overwhelming. The Bishop does not profit in any way from the presence of minors and their inclusion is mostly a favor to the bored kids in our town and the bands who would like to play for them. Please don’t abuse this by acting like a fool.
What time will this band or that band take the stage?
The posted start time is all the information we can give you. Please remember that when you call the bar to ask this question the night of the show, the bartender answers. S/he has no idea.
Where can I park?
