Response from the owner - in the last week
You should notify the barstaff immediately when you feel you have been treated unfairly or rudely by any door staff or promoter. They generally are all friendly as they collect money for the bands performing that night. Sorry you had a negative experience. With the bartenders being friendly, I wonder what the bar's rating would have been had there been no cover charge? I hope you change your mind and return some day, especially if you have been going there on and off for so many years.
