Unfortunately this place decided that they wanted to racial profile my friends and be extremely rude to myself and my other friends because the inside of the bar was actually nice.
DO NOT EVER GO HERE.
My reviews of this club.....
Do not waste your money here.
This is my only way to vent my anger on this bar since I couldn't punch the bouncer in the face, so please, I am begging you, do NOT ever go to this bar.
That was the nice version since I was posting it on Google and did not want it to be deleted. Now, here is what really happened, my friends and I go there to meet up with a friend of a friends promoter guy. So we get there, have some drinks, are waiting for some more people to show up.
I was told to tell them to say the name Zach at the front door. A couple of our friends got in. I got a text saying that the two girls N & O couldn't get in and to come outside. So I go outside, I'm talking to the bouncers, and I tell them they're here for Zach and tell me too bad and to get Zach to come outside and let them in. I get pissed.
I go inside, talk to Zach, ask him to come outside, he goes to me "So what is the real reason they won't let them in?" And at this point, I was mad, now after he said that I was FUMING. I go to him, "well considering who is in this club right now, I would bet you it was because they are black but how the fuck would I know? All i know if they are standing outside and its freezing" And he's like... "how are you going to play the race card on me?" And I go..." Zach, most of my friends are black, im not being racist but your bouncers sure as fuck are"
Finally he comes outside with me and at this point I am SO incredibly angry. This asshole was not being compliant with me AT all and I reall couldn't understand why and that was frustrating the fuck out of me.
We get outside, he talks to the bouncers, I'm stalking with N & O and the bouncers are telling me I can't stand there and have to go outside the rope or inside the bar. I go walk over to Zach who looks like he can't tell which way is up or down and he tells me that they can't come inside because "they don't look good enough".
Now I am FURIOUS. I think there might have even been steam coming out of my ears I was that mad. I storm back inside to roomie, spanky & mich and tell them that we need to leave immediately because the bouncers are racist pricks and N&O can't come inside.
I go get my coat, I walk out the door, I push the bouncer a little and say to him "That was fucked up by the way in case you didn't know you asshole." And he goes "that is the club rules" I go "yeah well your club is fucked up and youre just as big of a piece of shit by working here"
As I am walking away, the bouncer said something, I barely heard him but I heard him enough to think he said something about "well your face isnt that nice either", enough to make me turn around and say "What did you just say?" and make me start walking back towards him. And I go "Say it again you piece of shit" And then his big BLACK bouncer tells me I have to leave right now and pushes me out of the roped area, as I'm telling him he's a hypocrite bad excuse for a black man to have my 2 black lady friends not allowed in the bar and what a shitty person he was. After I am pushed out, I start yelling lots of fuck you's and don't go to this fucking bar,, blah blah.
UGH. I was so mad, I couldn't even control myself, but if I do say so myself I didn't get up in his face and/or punch or slap him. So... I would say I did okay.
So, that is my story about Levant East. I hope no one ever goes there. I would never say that about any place unless they really deserved it.
It just MADE ME SICK that in New York City, the biggest diverse city in the world, we are racially profiling who walks through the door of the bars. I mean, lets be serious. They looked awesome. I can't even believe it. I couldn't even bring myself to tell N&O what the reason was because they looked beautiful and FUCK what some bald piece of shit rich snobby fuck says about them.
Then we ended up at our last resort bar, 420 Lounge
This place is always has great music and such a diverse crowd. So many memories in this bar. It may not be crowded and everyone is not dressed to impress, but its a relaxed and chill atmosphere and I would definitely recommend it.
Have you had an experience like this before?
