Bad Service, Rude staff
Yesterday, my boyfriend, along with his friends, were kicked out of Club Edge (Edge Night Club) for asking for Tap Water in order to sober up. This is the second time I've seen this happen...
When the bartender refused to provide him with tap water, he suggested he drinks from the bathroom. he then asked for a cup, but he informed him that no cups were allowed in the bathroom and that he should use his hands. Surprised at the bartender's response, my Boyfriend's friend said he would tweet his friends about this incident. Apparently, this was grounds to kick them out along with his boyfriend. This all happened as he was in the bathroom.
Last time, I was with a friend at the Edge's Rooftop Patio. There was a very drunk girl at the bar who was asking for water and apparently had no money left for bottled water. My friend made a comment to the bartender saying "Isn't it illegal to refuse water to your clientele according to your smart serve certification?". Apparently, the same bartender, didn't like this either, so he fetched the bouncer and made his way to the dancefloor. He waved his finger in my friend's face screaming at the bouncer "That's him! That's Him! Kick him out!" Swatting the bar Tender's hand away was a bold move that got my friend his ankle broken in a struggle with the bouncer.
The way this club treats its clientele is abhorrent. "Go drink from the tap in the bathroom with your hands" is not a way to keep clientele coming back nor any way to treat a human being.
