Disappointing. Very Disappointing
By ThomasTurn2 on 6/29/2012
I started to just forget the treatment I got here last night. When I woke up this morning and still felt the sting of my treatment here I knew I had to write this review. We walked in and the two bartenders at the bar looked at us and looked in the other direction. We figured, maybe they are just busy, so we'll wait. One of the bartenders then left from behind the bar and went into a downstairs area. The other bartender continued to do busy work, I guess he was writing orders or something, I have no idea, I do know that it felt like he was making an effort not to come to our end of the bar. We're pretty tall people so we were kinda hard to miss. So my girlfriend decided to walk to his end of the bar and make herself known. The bartender looked at her and actually sneered...and then looked past her to talk someone who was leaving. Mind you, WE ARE RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM and he gave her this look that for me said, "You are not welcome here." Normally, I would have lost it on him but I opted to leave instead. My girlfriend was disgusted and so was I. Writing this review is disappointing to me because I've passed this bar so many times since moving here and was really looking forward to an opportunity to drink and enjoy myself here. Yesterday this bar lost two customers...good ones. Maybe that doesn't matter to them and that's okay, but at some point this kind of treatment of customers will catch up to them and then it will.
