DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BECOME A MEMBER BEFORE BUYING A TICKET?
Most of our events are open to all and some only to members and their friends. A membership enables access to all areas and discounted tickets. Non-members may not be able to enter all playrooms depending on the individual venue.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE APPLICATION TO BE PROCESSED
We can get busy at times due to the high volume of applications we receive. However, every application will receive an outcome, so please be patient with us while we process them.
WHAT IS THE CRITERIA?
There are none and even if there was one we would not tell - otherwise everyone would send us the same Gulasch.
I HAVE BEEN INVITED TO TEARS FOR BEERS. WHAT SHALL I DO?
Don’t worry, an invitation to TFB is not a rejection of your application.
Apart from joining the event, being yourself & enjoying the night, there is nothing you need to do.
If we feel you could fit in with Klub Verboten, someone from our memberships team will randomly approach you.
Please note - we can not guarantee that 100% of attendees will be vetted immediately, you may be required to attend a second TFB. It's a social event for everyone and not a membership factory.
CAN I VOUCH FOR MY FRIENDS TO BECOME MEMBERS?
Unfortunately not at the moment. Just bring them along to one of our socials like Tears for Beers.
WHY DO I HAVE TO SUBMIT A LINK TO MY SOCIAL MEDIA?
In the interest to protect our tightly knitted community it is important to verify the identity of our members somehow. Other clubs have requested passport copies or photo uploads in the 90s - but this is our method. We are a GDPR compliant entity with a keen interest to protect your privacy. However, it is crucial that we are able to identify attendees of our events for the safeguarding of our members.
CAN I BECOME A MEMBER WITHOUT PROVIDING A LINK TO ANY SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILE?
No. We need to be able to clearly identify a person for everyone's safety ad wellbeing. Therefore we can't accept applications without a social media link or profiles only showing pictures of cute animals, drawings, food porn, etc.
I DON'T HAVE SOCIAL MEDIA. CAN I SEND MY PASSPORT OR A PHOTO INSTEAD? CAN WE SKYPE CHAT?
No sorry, with all the best intensions there is not enough time to arrange this. If social media is not your thing, we totally understand. Feel free come to one of our social events like Tears for Beers to introduce yourself outside of the digital world.
Do not send us any form of ID documents or photos!
CAN I HAVE FEEDBACK ON THE STATUS OF MY APPLICATION?
Everyone will be notified of the outcome of their application earlier or later. Time can vary and one does not necessarily get approved before a particular event. During and after this process we do not have the capacities to give individual feedback.
WHY DID I NOT GET APPROVED?
Klub Verboten became a members club to safeguard its community. Not every application will be immediately successful. Some may require to attend one of our socials to meet our members in real life. Others may need to attend as guests of members first.
CAN I APPLY MORE THAN ONCE?
No, please do not send us more than one application. If you feel misjudged you can always come to Tears For Beers and hang out.
