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”.
Great all around place. Quality food, drinks, music, everything.

Good service. Decent prices
FYI it's not a urinal... It's the oldest operating spittoon in town...
Best place for a quick drink or live music in Alameda!
The place was so good. And I love their service.
Great music. Definitely the hottest Dancehall shows in the Bay.
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.
A coffee shop with soul and community. Definitely worth going out of your way to enjoy a truly amazing coffee (and tea) experience. Those who live/work nearby are lucky to be able to make this their daily stop. Kudos to Kristen and her partner Tina Nemling!
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!
It feels like Oakland in there. So many different faces, everyone having a good time.... happiness.
Love Mani Niall's Uptown bakery with gluten-free and vegan options!
It's a patio where you can relax and the sun won't disappear prematurely.
Only because it's newer than Beer Revolution.
The H&D is a great spot to go on a date, kick back with your friends, or meet the nice "regulars." There's a variety of drink options and special events like Craft Beer Sunday and a new Spa afternoon where ladies can relax with a couple drinks in hand. And, it's all served up by a great staff who serve you quickly and make you feel welcome to "hang out."
Obviously. There's no place that's consistently better (or busier). The sandwiches are incredible, the cocktails always solid and everything is beyond reasonably priced. The outdoor patio is now a local hangout for a cross section of Oakland natives. Best bar by far.
Hard to beat good beer on the patio on a nice warm day.
