terrible place , will never go again
I have been witnessed to an extremely traumatic experience at 1015 Folsom and that is the reason just joined citysearch to post my concern.
Yesterday with a group of friends, were in guest list line to get in for Deep Dish right at the door, but there was a huge line at either side of the door and also many people on the sidewalk and street toward the front door. A young guy tried to sneak in form the front, a bouncer yelled at him with the loudest voice and then like it wasn’t enough to send the guy to back off, he put both his hands on this guy’s neck and started choking him to the point that his eyes started rolling back in his skull, he started moving the guy with his hands still around his neck to the middle of street and then throw him to the ground!
I have been in many small and large and mega clubs in Toronto, different cities in US and Europe, never witnessed such a disturbing scene! The bouncer literally assaulted the poor guy which he was only guilty of being sneaky and trying to get in! The young guy about 5’6” and the bouncer massive body and 6’2” probably? (When he yelled at the guy, he immediately started going back, no choking was required) I just hope that this young guy is OK, and I also hope that he realizes that what happened to him was not right and he should press charges against the club.
At that same moment my group moved in the club, no one checked our ID and we just went in.
A little bit about music experience, which is far away from any club that I have ever been, very poor quality, over compensated by massive base that I assume people should be high enough to enjoy, since there was nothing pleasant about sound system. Although I was so traumatized by witnessing the assault done by bouncer that I could not stay and experience the bad music and decided I would just leave. So after less than 10 minutes in the club, I just left. Will never ever go to this club ever again! And advise everyone to not go until the management change the way they treat people at the door.
