OUR CODE OF CONDUCT

The Whistler is committed to providing a welcoming and harassment-free environment for people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, physical abilities, physical appearances, and beliefs. We believe in having a recorded and publicly available set of guidelines as a necessary and important part of building this environment. Please take a moment to read ours below, and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

PATRONS, STAFF & PERFORMERS AGREE TO:
Be considerate in speech and actions, and actively seek to acknowledge and respect the boundaries of others. Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.

THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:
Deliberate intimidation; stalking; unwanted photography or recording; sustained or willful disruption of events; inappropriate physical contact; use of unwelcome sexual or discriminatory imagery, comments, or jokes; and unwelcome sexual attention.

HOW TO REPORT SOMETHING:
If you feel that someone has harassed you or otherwise treated you inappropriately, please alert a staff member in person, or contact us via phone (773-227-3530) or email billy@whistlerchicago.com.

WHAT WE’LL DO:
We will do everything in our power to help keep you safe. If any person engages in harassing behavior, we may take any lawful action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to warning the offender, asking the offender to leave our premises, or contacting local law enforcement.

PLEASE TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER:
We know this community is a caring one. Please help us keep The Whistler safe for everyone. Alert one of us if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this code of conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.

QUESTIONS, CONCERNS, FEEDBACK?
We welcome your feedback on this and we thank you for working with us to make it a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who visits us.
