Strange door policies

Post by thomas » Sat Mar 17, 2007 3:50 pm

A palce to name and shame the venues with off the wall door policies, and have a good laugh at how ridiculious they are.

Last night at Revolution in Fallowfield, Manchester i was almost turned down for wearing trainers with bubbles. "No bubbles" "No bubbles? come on in then!"

Lucky i was wearing Nike Air Safari so no visible Bubble :G:

Anyone else got one to share

so what is the problem with bubbles? can they prove lethal when mixed with alcohol?

i don't... i turned up a couple of weeks ago on my own and winston showed me it. i hadn't seen it before so read it all... and then clocked and was like 'winston... i come here nearly every week'

a friend at work said he once tried to get into fwd and they said he was too white. but i don't believe him... cos there's a lot of VERY honky crackers in fwd.

back in my hometown there are loads of shitty little bars, usually part of a franchise, which, come the weekend, suddenly think they are ronny scotts and insist on ridiculous dress codes

no hoodies
no trainers
no t shirts
no stone island
no hats
no hair too short > grade 2 (problem for me)

must have collared shirt
must have black shoes

all this from shitty yates or the shrewsbury hotel. waste

do they still operate a students only policy? :roll:

the reason for the bubbles is cos they don't want the local boys coming down and upsetting the spoilt little rich kids spending daddy's money on cocktails (Im guessing it hasn't changed in the last couple of years)

How did I know you were going to post this. LOL.

I wanted to tell him where he could shove his $15 on the way out, but the allure of escaping 180 bpm ragga clowncore was too great.

I bailed as soon as they started playing dnb. I have a vague idea which promoter your speaking of. That place is a carpeted dungeon, and now they're cracking down on "in and outs"

my new clubnight, "The Referee's A Skanker", will be operating a door policy that only allows in people dressed in full Ref garms. Blow that whistle!

Note to attendees: If you want to show tune appreciation, please show your yellow cards high in the air. If you want it to be rewound, then show your red cards. This rule does not apply to the colour blind, who may flash whatever cards they like all night with impunity.
