This place has a very simple way of making money. They clear your drinks when you are not looking, even if your glass is 3/4 full. This is what happened with me when to my utter dismay I realized that not only my drink but the drinks of my entire party standing at the bar had been cleared away right under our nose. Confident that the bartenders would be reasonable I approached them & explained the situation. However they just put their hands up, & walked away. I stood at the bar close to 20 minutes, very calm, trying to make sense out of the whole thing. After all, this was $100 worth of drinks! Finally the person in charge behind the bar came up to me , held me by the shoulders, shook me & said ""JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING WEIRD DOES NOT MEAN I WILL GIVE YOU YOUR DRINKS"" This stunned me completely. This man spoke to me as if I were a drunk vagrant not a paying customer who had shelled out money to enter the bar. When I asked for his name so I could speak to the management about him, he called the bouncers to deal with me. Thankfully the people at the door had more sense, they heard my case, and sent me back in with free drink coupons for my party.\r
When we were leaving, we heard another agitated customer complaining outside. This man had a table and had paid for a bottle, and had been kicked out on false pretext. He came out at the same time as us and went straight up to the two policemen standing near the club to complain. Compared to him , our problems seemed minor, but it is very clear that this club practices this as a matter or habit. \r
I have never been compelled to go online and write about a club in such detail, but I think it is only fair that everyone should know what goes on here. I know it is common practice for employees at clubs/bars in New York to be rude & curt , but such irreverence is too much to bear. This place is screaming for a change of management and policy and I hope that the owners/promoters sit up and take notice.
