I've never even been there... All I need to see is a s*xually discriminatory dress code, cover charge, and how their website represents themselves and their reputation preceeds them, and I have no desire to patronize the establishment. Danny and his investors can sink all the money they want into making it the premiere destination in Scottsdale, but the fact remains they are discriminatory and s*xist, and should be humbled- and the pretentious idiots who keep going to these places should wake up to how bad they are being exploited and how badly they exploit themselves and others.
I have met many people who both do work there and have worked there and they all say the same thing- Danny and crew rely on s*x and pretense to keep raking in the millions, and most are not entirely proud of their association, but like most of us, they still need jobs to survive, and sadly, places like Barcelona continue to r*pe people of their money (and dignity).
This stands true for not only their patrons, but the employees or would-be potential employees, as they practice s*xual discrimination blatently in their hiring and employment, which alone, again like most every other nightclub and bar, should get them the full weight of the law brought upon them- but apparently this isn't something governments and enforcement agencies follow through on regularly, at least not without prompting from a persistent, concerned public.
I pick on Barcelona specifically since they seem to be be making the attempt to make their name currently as THE spot in Scottsdale / Phoenix / Arizona, not out of any specific grudge.
Shame on all of us who continue to let this kind of s*xist, discriminatory behavior to happen and mostly because we just want to hook up or be seen. In Barcelona's case, what did we really expect from a guy who made his fortune from a carwash?
