Rude and ruder are the bartenders !! Cheap drinks don't make up for ruining someone's night!!
Extremely rude and uncivilized bartenders @ “The Missourie Lounge”, Berkeley, CA.
It was this Saturday, May 17th and there were two female bartenders serving that night. One is called “Nora” and other one I did not get her name but she has got tattoo all over. I was with few of my friends and I ordered some drinks. While the bartender(one with the tattoo) was getting the drinks ready, two of my other friends showed up so I requested her to add a drink to which she was already mad and acting rude for not ordering earlier. I do not know how on earth I could have done that. Well I asked if she could add yet another drink a “Corona”…….. and at this point she was so angry, looked me straight in the eye and started yelling …..
“YOU ARE KILLING ME. DO YOU WANT THE DRINKS OR NOT??
I was literally frozen for a moment trying to process my brain as to why would she be so outraged for adding two more drinks. I was very furious too to have been responded with such an attitude and extremely rude behavior only because I could not order all the drinks at the same time. So I told her if it is too much for her to get me the two drinks, I will pay for the drinks that I ordered earlier and will get the remaining two from the other bartender. But I could not believe what happened after that. As soon as she heard this, she poured all the drinks into the drain right in front of me, my friends and everyone at the bar without the slightest respect for anyone. And she started yelling again very furiously….
“I AM NOT GOING TO SELL YOU ANY DRINKS”.
I just stood there shocked again not knowing how to react. I was with a big group of friends for one of friend’s birthday party so I sucked it up and tolerated this unacceptable behavior to not ruin the party and left the bar with no drinks. Things gotten worse later when I realized that she had been treating some of my other friends very rude as well and on yet another incident later at night, the other bartender(Nora) had the nerve to snatch drinks from one of my friends and threw her out of the bar to maybe show her support and appreciation to her bartender friend’s uncivilized behavior. All of us (about more than 30 of us) left the bar that night with much disappointment but mostly confused for having received such an ill treatment from both the bartenders.
Well I am sharing this incident online in the hope that the bar management will look into this matter and deal with such uncivilized behavior from their employees whose rude actions are dragging the reputation of the entire business down the drain. I will post this excellent review on any possible sites that matters for the better of “The Missourie Lounge”.
Club okay music was good Staff was not so good. A employee by the name Rudy he was very rude for no reason. is he don't like his job he shouldn't work there.
The place is so depressing it makes a funeral seem like a birthday party. Anyone that knows the place from the past would agree. Get with it guys!
Lousy service - and they do not keep their committment to the musicians and pay them what was agreed upon in email.
I do not recommend this place as I said, the owner Damon was rude - demanded I give up the table I had been holding waiting for a friends to join me for dinner - no sooner did I give up the table when my friends came in. Because I had one of my artists performing their that night and had asked several people to come out to support I could not very well leave - we wound up standing in the back eating dinner standing up at the end of the bar - when I had sufficient seating for us - just 5 mins before their arrival! I had promoted telling my friends to come out and support this new business! DO NOT SUPPORT THEM!
Damon agreed to a $10 cover for the bands I booked - and refused to charge more than $5 - I understand venues are hurting - but when you agree to something you must keep your word - I even reached a compromise and communicated with the musicians - they still did not honor their word on the compromise - he was insulting to me - insulting to the musicians - and I strongly advise not going here - the only redeemable thing about this place are the corn nuts!
yeah. Nice $14 cheese plate. We got what, 3 pieces of cheese, no bread, some honey, and a few pieces of tomato? This is one small complaint among a completely pathetic experience (smallest wine pour ever, worse service I've seen in a long time, etc etc etc). Go to the Trappist or to B if you're in the area. You'll be MUCH better served.
