Re: “Mother

My friend was turned away at the door by security for wearing a white v neck t shirt. I ended up going in with my other friends and someone else inside is wearing a white v neck t shirt as well. I asked the four security guards outside why some pearingople we a v neck tee were allowed in and others weren't. One of the security guards then asked me to show them the person inside who was wearing the same thing as my friend. I did so and they responded that that the individual insidd was there before they arrived for duty. I told them that regardless of whether they were working earlier that didn't matter and businesses must be consistent with their dress code policy. I was then told "don't worry about what other people are wearing". I pushed the matter further and said that letting some people and not other is discrimination and was the told to "have a good time or get out". Not only is this bad service, it's illegal to have inconsistent dress code policies. It gets better (or worse depending on your sense of humor). When my friend was turned away for wearing the white v neck t shirt he was told by security to get another shirt and they told him to try the clothing store next door which is called God is Dope. Mind you this occurred around 12:30am on Saturday (I.e. late on a Friday night). The clothing store God is Dope was open past midnight which is very strange. After getting into the argument with security and leaving Mother's around 1am I reconnected with my friend. He told me that when he went into the next-door clothing store he was solicited to buy cocaine. I don't know if there's a connection between the four security guards outside of mothers who recommended my friend go into the store next door or not but it seems extremely fishy, and regardless my friend was turned away based on an inconsistently enforced dress code. I'd love to talk to management about this (as I'm also talking to police about the matter) and I have pictures, albeit blurry, of all 4 security guards who were outside of Mother's last night.

Ohh and I have one more thing to mention. On a previous visit during spring 2015 I was over charged here at Mother's. I was charged an extra $10 dollars on my bill. Luckily i had a copy of the receipt so fraud protection at my bank removed the charge. I posted a negative review on fb and the manager told me they would fix it but I had already had the charge reversed. If you look on Mother's Facebook page there are 64 reviews and around 10 reviewers all say they were overcharged. The majority of reviewers who claim they were overcharged all say they were overcharged the same $10. No, this is not a holding fee as multie people said after waiting a few days to see if the charge would disappear they were charged an additional time. I'm calling visa and Mastercard tommorow to discuss the consistent complaints about Mother's.

Re: “Park Bench

Not sure how they got 3.3 stars when there is only a single one star review up. KLR777 is right. Absolutley the rudest bartenders in ATL with no bartending skills whatsoever. Piano music was good. There was a live band that came up for 2 or 3 songs that was really good, but then they left. Word was the bar sent them packing in favor of awful house music. The only way this bar manages to drive in patrons is because it is in a bar district, otherwise it would fail miserably.

Re: “Boutique Guitar Exchange

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These guys sold me a lemon of a guitar and refused to refund my money. Absolutely appalling that they would treat a customer like this. It had much more damage than I was led to believe. Seriously, take your business elsewhere.

Re: “Cabana Lounge

2 words, Bad Experience. I booked vip for my birthday may 13, 2016. I was told by lida that I only have to pay 50 deposit and the 50 dollars will go towards my tab. No other fees included and she will throw in a bottle. I thought to myself that this was an unreal deal but I also knew that Cabana Lounge is a farely new club and I thought maybe their just trying to bring business in. I heard about Cabana Lounge on V103 radio station and I heard that Jerrod J will host it, so that by itself set the tone for me and led me to believe that the club would be nice. After arriving that night, security at the door looked very ratchet. I wasn't sure if they were just hanging out like bumbs or who they were. Not professional at all. After that, I had to make music suggestions to the dj because none of the music that he was playing was dance music. It was hood music. I like a little hood music but in a lounge they have a dance floor for a reason. There suppose to have been a dress code but there was a crew there with masks on and riding around on a hoover board. At the end of the night I received a bill for almost 300.00 with fees that I was never told about. Lida signed me up for a package that I didn't know about or concent to. I was furious. It was my words against hers. I do not recommend anyone to go to Cabana Lounge.

Re: “Warby Parker

Come on, no more Warbyparker glasses. I’ve used GlassesShop.com before and have been very pleased with them. It is also one of the popular glasses stores for four-eyes that i strongly recommended.

Re: “The IRIS aka Rush Lounge

This has to be a joke...sketchy, drug infested, underage rat hole. The couches in VIP look like post Katrina throwaways. For EDM in Atlanta it's Opera. No one over 21 goes to this place expect parents looking for their kids.

Re: “Johnnie Maccracken's Celtic Pub

I was charged for drinks I did not order twice by the same bartender. I gave my information to be contacted by a manager, however, the bartender who over charged me got my information and proceeded to text to me. It was utterly unprofessional. I made several attempts to resolve the issue but it seems there is actually no manager. I urge any person who goes to this pub to review your tabs. The bartender actually ripped the itemized part of off mine thinking I would not notice or that I was intoxicated. That was definitely not the case. There are several other reviews stating similar situations so I'm quite sure she is the culprit. I have reported the company to the Better Business Bureau and I advise any person who experience similar issues to do the same. It is obviously consistent behavior. Hopefully my review will keep this from occurring to anyone else. Check out other bars in the area. I never have issues at Nick's. It's a pretty laid back dive bar as well!

Re: “Cypress Street Pint & Plate

It is sad that I have to give a rating so low. I have been here many of times and this was the first time I had ever experienced the rude personality and character of a waitress named Kelly. The food was great and I have recommended people here for the last 3 years. I brought a guest with me on my last visit and I am glad I got to see my waitress true colors. I placed a tip on my receipt that I admit wasn't the highest, the reason being, I wanted to tip her a $5 in cash in addition. Unfortunately I had cash in my car and proceeded to my car to make sure she had the rest of her tip.

Before I got a chance to make it to my car, she approached me outside at my car and address me about her tip. I let her know that I didn't have enough money on my card. Right before I can tell her I was going to pay the rest of my tip in cash, Kelly says " You don't need to be eating out at this restaurant then...." ---- She never knew I was actually getting cash out the car for her. I am glad that Kelly didn't know. It was great to see her show her true colors and inappropriate style. It definitely doesn't represent the company very well and I can't believe I had to even deal with somebody who obviously could have handled herself more professional.

Re: “Grocery on Home

I guess if by "independent musicians" you means shitty artists like Angel Snow, who have record labels and tour the UK because nobody here likes them, then sure, intimate venue.

Re: “Halo Lounge

I never knew customer service and professionalism were a thing of the past with Halo Lounge. I have been calling for a week to speak with Scott about a citation letter I received a month after an event there! This is horribly shocking! I paid $50 dollars for valet parking which it has NEVER cost that much before to valet only to receive a letter from Park Atlanta stating that the balance will be forwarded to collections and my car will be subject to a boot and tow if found in Atlanta city limits! This is absurd. I can’t ever seem to get Scott on the phone due to some girl telling me she doesn’t know who the manager is (impossible), she doesn’t have contact to the owner (flat out lie) and that he will contact me within an hour (which never happens because she is not passing the message to him). She has guarded that phone stronger than any Pitbull I know. This is absolutely horrible service. As a patron of the establishment I expect when my car is parked that its parked in the designated areas by the valet. I have never had issues with the shorter valet driver however this night was an experience from HELL. Not only was the club whack now to add insult to injury I receive a letter about a citation I never knew I had! If he parked my car illegally why did he hide the evidence? Idiot, I would eventually find out. I shouldn’t be held responsible for something I paid good money to avoid. I could have kept my $50 and parked the damn car myself. I would never recommend this place after this experience. And that is very unfortunate considering I frequented there several times before and always recommend this place as a hot staple to visit in Atlanta. My company will never do another party there again. I want to speak to the owner.

Re: “Highlands Chiropractic

He hurt me. Four months of MRI's, Physical Therapy and $5000 later I am still in pain. You get no personal attention because he is working on four to five people at a time. It's a feel good BS trip.

Re: “Smith's Olde Bar

Charged $15 each for 2 even after I showed them they were posted for $10 online. Then was told there would be a server (comedy show) only to wait so long that I had to search for her, then was told she was scared to come to the front row... Lol, I also didn't want to get up from the front row, but I don't work there. Staff just seemed to comfortable and lacked customer service skills.

Re: “Smith's Olde Bar

Came to an event posted at $10, but was charged $15 for 2 at the door; even after letting the guy know about the $10 posting. Then was seated in the front row; I was told there was drink service when I walked in (comedy show), but after a long wait I got up to check, only to find out that the girl was scared to come to the front row... But from the front row I had to get up to find her. The comedians rocked, the staff... Way too comfortable and lacking customer service skills.

Re: “Finders Keepers Furnishings

Indeed sellers beware! I recently cleared out many high end items some never used. I was encouraged to drop and go. Out of ten pieces only two were accepted. The rest of the loot was "donated". Hope the staff enjoys the winfall.

Re: “Kabob Land

The food was great , but the service horrific! Gorardan, our server, seemed to have no manners, nor care for customer satisfaction. We split our bill, and he threatened to charge a persons card (as a few of us were still be served and some were paying), if we didn't pay for something that was still being consumed by someone else. Will not return, will not suggest to anyone.

Re: “The 120 Tavern & Music Hall

Very poor service. The chunky female bartender with the tacky sleve tattoo that calls herself a manager is the worst bartender i have ever seen. My food was not cooked the way i ordered it. She actually told me i could not take my leftovers home with me because the wings were .50 each. This would be a great place if there was an entirely new staff. They're all burnouts.
