We do everything we can to make BASIS an enjoyable and safe space for everyone. This is a key responsibility for our staff who are here to make that happen, so please follow their instruction at all times. 

We expect our visitors to maintain an open, positive and tolerant attitude towards others, regardless of their origin, culture, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and age. BASIS has unisex toilets.

We expect visitors to cooperate in creating a safe clubbing space for everyone, both physically and socially. If you or someone else feels unsafe or unsettled by anything occurring in the club please report this to our staff immediately so we can resolve the issue.

BASIS is a place where artists are exhibiting their work. It is therefore important that this is the main purpose of your visit.

To improve the atmosphere in the club we prefer to see as few phones on the dance floor as possible. Using your phone, including for filming/photography, can be disruptive to other visitors and artists and infringe upon the experiences of others. We tape off the flash upon entry and advise everyone to put away their phones and enjoy the moment.

Tickets bought on presale do not guarantee entry, so please be aware of our house rules.

When leaving BASIS, please think about our neighbours and leave as quietly as possible. Thank you!

BASIS is a member of ‘Panel Deurbeleid’. If you are refused or expelled and you feel this is not in accordance with our house rules, you can submit a complaint to the Panel at or by calling +31 (0)30 232 86 66″
