The club has been featured by many popular international publications and its venue has been listed among top clubs worldwide. Not anyone can access it, since security is top priority for Bassiani team and they have certain criteria based on which they allow people in their venue.

“Tickets are only sold to those who have registered online and have been verified. A person needs to meet three main criteria in order to pass our verification process. Basically, we need to know who the person is, or our acquaintances must know who they are. However, there are people that none of us know, but still pass the online verification. In such cases, we maintain a record of their data. If they cause any kind of conflict inside the club, they are immediately placed on our black list, and will never be allowed to enter BASSIANI again. As for those who buy tickets on the spot, we use face control measures to filter them,” Said one of the Bassiani members who was previously quoted by Forbs.ge.
