Online memberships available after reading the membership page HERE

We have a 100% ID check at the door when you enter

"The Crucible is dedicated to providing a safe gathering space for all of our members and their guests. In an effort to provide our community with the safest space possible, beginning March 1, 2018, The Crucible application process for all new memberships and all membership renewals will include an ID search of the public US Department of Justice and the DC Metropolitan Police Department registered sex offenders database. Additionally, all non-member guests requesting admission to events at The Crucible must present a valid government-issued photo ID which includes date of birth, and guest entries will be checked against these databases as well.

Should you be unable to present current, valid ID, you will not be granted access to The Crucible. No exceptions will be made in this regard. Anyone who is registered on these databases will be denied membership and/or entry to The Crucible.

We appreciate your patience as we add this important step to our membership and admission process."
