Wow, where do I start?
Turned up with a group of 8, 4 guys & 4 girls, and paid extortionate amounts beforehand for the 'VIP Room' to celebrate our friends' birthday.
We were ushered into the VIP room where we were issued black wristbands which supposedly assured us free drinks all night.
A member of staff then approached our group and told us all the men would have to move to another table in the VIP room so that more girls could get in. So we stupidly agreed and left our girlfriends sitting alone at the table and moved to the other side of the room.
Not 10 minutes later and the same staff member approaches and makes us move AGAIN onto another table, this time near the entrance.
More and more women have started entering by this point when our favourite member of staff returns and says that we need to leave the VIP room for 15 minutes so it can fill up, then we can come back.
We are ushered away from the room, still containing our girlfriends, into the main 'non-VIP' room and told there would be a large table waiting for us.
We are left with no table, and told at the bar that the wristbands could only be used at the bar in the VIP room, and a single vodka &red bull was £14, I politely declined.
When we returned to the VIP room, they refused us entry because a football team I've never heard of has hired the room (Nottingham Forest?), and that they don't want any other guys in there.
We protest due to paying extra for VIP, but are told to come back in another 15 minutes.
We spent two and a half hours trying to get back into the VIP room, until we eventually gave up and left the club, having not had a single drink the whole time.
We felt completely ripped off, treated as second class citizens, and humiliated.
I've never been treated worse in a venue before in my life, and I most certainly will never be returning again.
