This place offers the worst customer service ever thanks to their lovely bouncer staff. On 6/5/10 My brother and I decided to take our 18 yr old little bro on his 1st venture to this club. Our little brother wore a nice button up collar shirt, jeans, and docker shoes which one would assume is proper attire based on what others are seen wearing in that particular club. As my little bro. was sitting down enjoying the scene of people dancing, 3 very rude bouncers escorted my bro out of the club because "" He was out of dress code...his shirt was out."" I then demanded an explanation to their unfair action because all the men present were wearing similar polo shirts un-tucked from their pants. In response another bouncer explained "" Ma'am it's up to the manager's digression on who he feels is out of dress code and he tells us to remove them."" After pointing out a number of men, which were more than I can count on my fingers and toes, wearing the exact style clothing, and demanding they all be escorted out, the bouncer then went outside to let my bother back in, and later apologized. I am deeply saddened my little bro had a horrible and embarrassing experience his 1st time at Dixie's. The bouncers there are rude and unfair.
Great club for young first-timers.... They play country for 5 songs straight (hmm it's called the DIXIE club) then they mix the Hip-Hop in... It's funny to see a dance floor empty then when the hip-hop comes on the floor gets packed. Wednesday nights is free for ladies, so lots of college grils go that night..hahaha
I personally will never go back again.... They do this "Black" dress-code thing that is really disturbing....but like some clubs in the South, it is accepted.... So if your Black please come with extra clothing so you can atleast ask what is appropriate and change in the car.
Then when you get in wait awhile to buy a drink because they may kick you out and say the "Manager" said so... I've personally seen them say no shorts to Blacks and 10-15 White boys walk in and out without questioning.... It's disgusting to be a grown man and have security guards hound you to tuck in your shirt as you look around at the white boys with shirts out...
Sound's like I've a bad experience?? Count three different times... not including the times I was just on crockett street and witnessed it. Ask anybody from Beaumont and they will tell you, "That must have happened at Dixie's." So, I personally stay a way and will actively encourage others black and white to do so also... institutionalized racism is what it's called
No use in making a fuss because the owner's are a group of lawyers..... This is Beaumont's prime club area and they want to keep a clean enviroment so there logic is to keep some of the "Dirty and unruly" blacks out while monitoring the rest.... Classic southern behavior....
This my honest assertion and I have tried to give Dixie's a chance but will no longer after the last time I went in a blazer, collared shirt, slacks and black sole shoes and was asked to leave after ten minutes... Mind you, I had to change clothes because the first time I went "my pants were too baggy".... If your Black, you know that's southern code for institutionalized racism.
