Master Calendar Lesson

[Note: While we try hard to keep to the first Sat schedule, don't assume. Always check the Master Calendar, as the schedule will, on occasion, change due to other Crucible rentals]

Our new space is designed for both kinky and lifestyle play. We've got THREE PRIVATE ROOMS.


Dress Code?

We don't need no stinkin' dress code.

And other timely FAQ's:

We do NOT have a dress code. Never have in over 20+ years. We don't presume to tell you how to dress, we figure that was your mother's job, and she taught you the usual "dress to impress", etc. stuff. If you show up in work clothes, we're not going to send you away. We will, however, laugh at you in your futile attempts to get lucky.

It's kinda funny the things people will try to convince you of. We've heard several other comments lately about the Crucible, and what you can, and can't do here.

Here's the reality:

We've been in business for over 20 years!

We are a private, member's only, non-profit club in DC.
We have a 501(c)7 status with the IRS.
Everybody from the City Council on down knows us, and:

While a few events allows non members to attend, that's because we consider that as "outreach". They are few and far between. We want you to come and see us, then get a membership. Memberships are normally required because of the private club requirements in the District.

We have almost 2500 current members.

As a private club, we are allowed to DO ANYTHING

We are on-premise

Nudity is not only allowed, it's highly encouraged

We expect to be as good neighbors in this community as we were in the past, so please:

Don't park in front of the residences on 4th St.

Arrive early.
On Lifestyle nights, we have a DJ AND a full cash bar.
We take credit cards.
We have a dance light system over the dance floor
We have a stripper pole, a professional one.

Tickets are not required, but it speeds things up when coming in, and costs you less.

Memberships can be gotten HERE
Tickets can be prepurchased HERE
