I am a local Bay Ridge resident. I started going to Level when it opened a few years ago. Fast forward a few years later, and I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. I was assaulted by a staff member three days ago. I hadn't been to Level in a while, because to be honest, the crowd has changed drastically. Considering this change, the owners have decided to have security checking people's bags and patting them down at the door...a lovely way to start your evening! I walked inside, it was very dark and crowded, and ultimately, very unorganized. I was trying to figure out where to pay to get in (charging $30 at the door!) only to have the worker (who was checking the bags, and who I hadn't noticed) jab her TWO FINGERS into my stomach so HARD that I flew backwards into my friends. This place is filled with LOW LIFE security guards. Sorry, I am a Brooklyn girl who is not used to be patted down to go have a drink in a cafe...I was not expecting to be searched in there. When I complained, I was not respected and they failed to do anything about it. I will NEVER GIVE THEM A DIME and I feel sorry for the owners...they have a problem on their hands now.
