|What do I do if I have a problem with another disorderly guest?
DO NOT attempt to handle any problem situations inside or outside of our club. Report the situation to a door person and or ask to talk to the manager on duty. Our door security personel are easily identifiable by their baby blue shirts or jackets. If you are involved in a bar fight odds are you will be asked to leave depending on the situation and managements discretion you may be banned for a short, long or permanant amount of time! Our rule of thumb, if you are involved in any type of fight is " When in doubt they both go out." Management will not tolerate any type of physical violence. It will be dealt with very strictly.
What to do if I am asked to leave the property?
Do so quickly and quietly... without drama, abusive or profane language and
certainly no physical violence or club damage. Usually our guests are
asked to leave the premisis for the night. They are not usually being
barred. We find that our guests who wind up being permanantly barred, are those
who don't want to "let it go" after they are cut off from
alcohol service or asked to leave the property for some other reason.
