The SAFE Bar Network is a nonprofit focused on safe nightlife - partnering with alcohol-serving venues to help them increase profit, increase repeat customers, and decrease employee turnover. We are a safe bar program, welcoming new safe bars.


The SAFE Bar Network is built on the idea that culture change is possible. We believe that when we engage bar and restaurant staff in conversations about harm, active bystander skills, and supporting each other, that we’ll help to shift workplace cultures and put a renewed emphasis on safety

Trust: we build trust.

  • Be consistent.

  • Keep open lines of communication.

  • Be open-minded and willing to learn.


Respect: we show respect.

  • Value everyone’s unique abilities and contributions.

  • Actively listen to others.

  • Recognize that people are the experts in their lives.


Accountability: We model accountability.

  • Communicate openly and honestly.

  • Take responsibility and accept consequences.

  • Reliably deliver on your commitments.


Connection: we facilitate connection.

  • Show genuine concern for others.

  • Take action to help.

  • Encourage and praise others.


Support: we give support.

  • Lead with empathy.

  • Listen to understand.

  • Offer options instead of telling people what to do.

At the SAFE Bar Network, we believe that people learn when they are actively engaged in a real-life struggle with new information. In the SAFE Bar Training conversation, we work to connect people with what they already know about safety and harm, share new information, and help them integrate the new learning into their everyday lives.
