My wife and I went to the Sky Bar about 10.30 last night after seeing a very good west end show, I found us a seat but the manager stopped my wife and told her last orders were about to be called and she was not allowed in! I had found a seat and went to find her only for her to tell me we had to leave? I asked the bar man if last orders had been called - #no’ and he was willing to serve me asking what drink I wanted - my wife still up on the steps…. I explained a woman had said we were not allowed in and then the woman in question was next to me and I asked her – she told me they don’t take people in off the street after 10pm – I informed her were residents of the hotel not people ‘off the street’ and she became very rude – we left and felt the whole incident was either ageist or homophobia – or BOTH! We went downstairs to lobby bar for a drink and it turned out this bar is 3rd party run not the hotel.
So we will avoid it in future and hope KARMA gets the very troubled manager…….
