There are two instances in my life when I've been tossed around like a rag doll in public (and in private), The first was January 2011 when I happened to be in the way of a guido vs guido brawl at Royale. The second was last night when I also happened to be in the way of a fight while innocently eating my rice and beans...
This was my second visit to the Back Bay Social Club. My first experience wasn't positive but I was willing to give it a second chance. I was so excited to go out last night - it had been a month and a half since I last raged. I wore my new DVF safari kaftan and felt like a jungle woman ready to paint the town red...
First, I HATE waiting in a line outside to have dinner.
Second, what an odd mix of people.
Third, GREAT hospitality... NOT. (with the exception of our server)
Most importantly... I got trampled over in a bar fight which started with 2 guys and ended with like 5. Ok, whatever I got pushed into a table by a few grown ass men. I am more upset about how management handled the situation.
A suited up young man came up to me and asked "can I get you something?" I replied, "I'm sorry, I'm a little shaken up. Where are your bouncers?" He replied, "they're around." Me, "okay well that was weird." He says, "yeah, sorry this doesn't really happen here. Can I get you another drink?" Me, "fine."
It's not what he said, it's how he said it - like way too bro-ey if ya know what I mean. I don't want to pull this card but I work in customer service too and I know that regardless of who's fault it is, you always do and say what you need to to satisfy your customer ESPECIALLY since my table was spending more money than anyone else in that restaurant.
Anyway, everything else was ok besides the fight and its aftermath but because I was so annoyed with this bro, I am giving this place a thumbs DOWN! Sorry BBSC but I'm not sorry!
PS Your lower level smells like a dirty rag.
