DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BECOME A MEMBER BEFORE BUYING A TICKET?
Yes, we are a members club. We allow approved members to purchase tickets for trusted friends or partners though depending on the event format.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE APPLICATION TO BE PROCESSED
Sometimes more time, sometimes less time. One does not only get approved for one particular event.
WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA?
There is none and even if there would be 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?
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 some secret Verboten crew member we will approach you. Don't be a speed dater on the hunt for memberships, don't hassle other members to be taken along.
Please note - We can not guarantee that 100% of the audience will be vetted at the first attempt, sometimes one may need to attend on another occasion again. It's a social event for everyone and not a membership factory for a few at the end of the day.
CAN I VOUCH FOR MY FRIENDS TO BECOME MEMBERS?
Unfortunately not at the moment. You may be allowed to purchase additional tickets for a trusted friend or partner. Otherwise, just bring them along to 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 intends 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 is a members club. That entails not everyone who applies can become a member instantly. In the early stages of Verboten the club only seeks to find a few individuals to join, who then are allowed to bring guests to our events. As such the responsibility and powers over our doors are shared with the community. With time and trust being built the doors will open to a wider community with more memberships given out. So one may be invited to to join the Tears for Beers social event first to progress to be come fully approved.
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.
