Safety & Security

As the owners and operators of Bass Performance Hall, Performing Arts Fort Worth has security measures in place in an effort to enhance comfort and provide the safest environment possible for our patrons, artists, and organizations that call Bass Hall home.

Arts Amenities, Inc. is the private corporation that leases the premises to provide food and beverage service at the Hall.  This lease has been in place since the opening of the facility in 1998.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) makes a determination every two years (upon renewal) as to which signs are required to be posted and Bass Performance Hall is required to adhere to their determination.  The TABC’s website shows that a “Red” sign is required at Bass Performance Hall.  The “Red” sign is the 51% sign. 

Because of the State mandated 51% sign, any Licensed or Unlicensed possession of a Handgun on our premises is a felony.

Additional security details are outlined below and will be in place for all performances in Bass Performance HallMcDavid Studio and Van Cliburn Recital Hall.

Please note: The box office entrance on Commerce St. is not open during performances. Please use the main entrance at Commerce and E. 4th St.
