I am sorry about the inconvenience from last week, I am sure you missed the side note that we only seat 110 total and due to how small we are and the fact that the show starts at 9pm we cannot hold 25% of the total seating while for you while 200 other people stare at the empty seats and get pissed off as to why they cannot sit there because you show up late! this is unfair to all of our customers and we do our best to make everyone happy! We did our best to accommodate you even when you where late, so once again I'm sorry So boycott "My Behind" and I will Boycott dumb blond's!
What do smart blondes and UFOs have in common? You always hear about them but you never see them.
How do you know a blond has been in your office? There is white-out on your computer screen.
Barrel Room Rocks!
27 fun-loving, bachelorette party attending females arrived at 10 pm (as planned) via party bus at the Barrel Room Saturday October 2, 2010 with the expectation their reservation/tables would be waiting for them. Little did they know, that all the information the event planner was given a couple weeks prior was incorrect…all to be blamed on a employee who is “new and doesn’t know.” Money paid for cover charge, reservation/tables, initial drink, and to ensure the involvement of the bachelorette with the live act fizzled as the realization finally hit that there was no place to sit, let alone stand and enjoy the live show. We were informed the staff “had no idea we were coming.” • Nowhere on their reservation page is the information which our party was given this fateful evening; TABLES WILL NOT BE HELD PAST 9PM. This would have been a key factor in our strategic planning as we were not even slated to leave on the party bus from Vancouver until 9pm. • 20 of the 27 females got their “free drink” and that was only after mentioning that we were told our financing included this amenity. • We attempted to enter the actual live music area of the establishment, only to be yelled at by staff that we were “blocking the way” and to “move.” All partygoers had to head outside to the less-than-favorable uneven blacktop scattered with picnic tables to listen to a dj spin 80’s tunes. As an attendee of this party, as well as a holder of a Business Administration Management bachelor degree along with a degree in Human Resource Management, I would venture to think that a party of 27 females looking for entertainment would provide fairly secure and hefty revenue for the venue as well as good PR. All partygoers wanted it to work…badly (that is why we hung around to even get the 20 drinks)! Unfortunately it was not in the cards for the evening. Lost revenue as well as rude, ill-mannered, unknowledgeable staff has led me to post a review of this establishment, and sadly, after this experience I would goad others to boycott this club, well, at least in groups over four.
