PLUNGE LOUNGE AT GANSEVORT ARE RACISTS
Let me just start off by saying that if you are a person of color, then dont bother coming to Plunge at the Gansevort Hotel.
The Story: My friends and I were coming to celebrate the birthday of two dear friends. Once we finally made it to the front of the line, we were told that in order to enter as a group of 10 that we would need to purchase 3 bottles. After a few brief moments of utter confusion, we stepped off the line to figure out how to continue enjoying the evening. Looking over at the front of the line, a young lady in a red dress began pulling people in the line to come in with no questions about bottle service, reservation etc. Once she noticed I was looking, she and her other ""helpers"" began calling for couples. The majority of my group were females with the exception of 3 males. My friends decided to break up and come in one by one instead however I decided to stay off the line to observe this ""selection process."" I watched as the lady in red step behind my friend and her husband to grab a white couple to come in. Of course my friends respond by saying ""are you just going to ignore us""? Apparently two black people standing in front of the line did not appear ready with ID's when two white people behind them were.... I decided that I wanted to test this selection process for myself and hopped back on the line. My boyfriend and I were finally at the front of the line ID in hand and the lady in red points to two white patrons behind us to come in. Like us ""they did not have a reservation, they did not buy a bottle, and we were both following the dress code."" I have 0 tolerance for disrespect so I decided to walk in as she pulled back the tape. She then says to me ""not you."" My boyfriend and I walked in despite her protest with no other issue for the rest of the evening.
Walking into this establishment, I quickly realized that the ONLY people of color that the Plunge lounge at the Gansevort hotel want are the one working hourly wages as bouncers and the help.
Also as an establishment, their presentation is a major fail. The music is terrible (and I found it surprising that they played Beyonce, Rhianna and music from other artist of color) The drinks are weak and they dont sell their tables which leads me to believe that their whole attempt at being ""exclusive"" is a complete farce. Their is no cover charge because they are trying to make money at the bar. they are trying to make money at the bar because no one is dumb enough to buy a table for $600-$1,000 and even more so there is no cover charge because the entire Plunge experience is a FAIL and they know it.
