Hi there, I am the manager of Archangel,
I would like to respond to the points you have made.
First, in regards to the DJ, our website states that we CAN provide a DJ, as this is an extra cost, we can alternatively play music from iPods for free. We do not allow DJ's that we do not know to use our system as we have expensive equipment that could be damaged by people using it irresponsibly.
Secondly, it is true that we have a policy of no R&B, Bashment or Hip Hop nights. Whilst I can understand why you may find this offensive, if you know our bar you will know that a couple of years ago we had regular nights that played these types of music. Therefore, our current policy could not be a reflection of any offence meant by the owners or management of the bar.
As explained this policy was adopted after a series of incidents at these nights, after which restrictions were placed upon what type nights we could provide, by the Kensington Licensing Authority and Police. Which was as frustrating for us as i'm sure it is for you, due to the loss of some profitable nights.
I apologise if are policy has caused you offence, but hope you might come back and enjoy a night in our bar, even if we cannot offer you our nightclub venue.
