I'e had many excuses:
"you need ladies with you"
"you're dressed too casual"
"you need to be on a guest list"
After a while of getting these excuses I became suspicious, ..so one time when I got turned away .. I decided to watch from a distance who they were letting in and turning away etc, and they were letting in big groups of white dude's with no ladies with them, they were letting in people dressed more casual than I [trainers] ...and people they were letting in clearly were not on a guest list because sometimes they didn't even speak to them when they were going in ...and just gave them a nod, so this means they were not ticking people off on a guest list.
tbh it's not just Tiger Tiger who does this sort of thing, quite a few of the big clubs in central discriminate like this. It's pretty widespread in Central. Once you get out of Central it happens less....
but It even happened in Tiger Tiger manchester once as well, I was just about to be let in by some staff when some women at the last second took issue with my clothing and said it was too casual.
I thought to myself, hmmm... I wonder if I really am too casual? [as I had never been to that Tiger Tiger before so didn't know the dress code] ..but later in the night I was at another bar and got talking to some white girls and told them I had been rejected from Tiger Tiger and they seem shocked, and they asked me why and then I told them they said I was too casual ....and the girls looked at my clothing and I could tell by their faces that they thought my clothing was fine ..and I could also tell by the looks they were giving each other that they thought there was something dodgy going on here with the rejection...., and they kept asking me "are you sure that's what they said?"
