I've been to this place many times and i always thought the door staff were completely unprofessional and rude. However 2 days ago I decided I will not go back to that place ever again because of these security people. I went there with my friend, we met up straight after work arrived at about 11.30. Once we got there we had to go through a bag and body search from the two security people at the entrance. The guy searched my friend since he is a guy and the coloured woman searched me. Everything was alright until we got to the cloak room were we realized we didn't have enough cash to leave our jackets. The staff told us not to worry and go to the ATM across the road get some money out and come back without waiting in the queue. When we came back, literally 5 mins later, we had to go through a bag and body search again. My friend was searched first by the man and I was just waiting behind him. In the meanwhile that lady came close to me and i though she wanted to check my bag while I was waiting so opened it and showed it to her like I always do. She completely ignored didn't say anything, didn't search the bag, then gave me a bitchy look and left me wondering what I had done wrong. After that, she pulled her colleague to the side, told him something and they both came back pulled my friend from the cloakroom area (who was there because he was told he was fine and he could go through) and told us we are both too drunk to go inside. Wtf was all that about?? Not only I didn't have anything to drink all day since I went there straight after work we were checked and allowed to go inside one time (my friend two times) they tell us to go to the ATM across the road and then they tell us we are too drunk? How did I go from sober to drunk in less then five minutes? They could even see me at the ATM from where they were standing. They knew where I went. What is wrong with these people? Not only that, my friend was checked and then pulled back because that stupid bitch told her colleague something. Like, didn't that man realize he was drunk the TWO times he checked him? This place is a joke!! I promised myself I'm never going back, I've been getting looks and rude behavior from these people nearly every time I go there (Every week) but this incident was out of order. Never ever again!! This place does not even deserve a second chance!! I was putting up with they're behavior, particularly with that coloured lady's behavior for a long time because I really liked the place but after this never again. Well done G-A-Y late you just lost a very good customer and all her friends who came with her every single Friday. What a shame.
