Red Door says sorry over incident
Proprietor of Red Door Lounge, Dominic Seale, has described the incident which oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr Adrian Richards experienced last weekend as unfortunate.
Richards took to social media last Saturday night after a racial experience by the doormen at Red Door Lounge on Saturday, when he was denied entry and immediately after three white men wearing shorts were given access, left a more than undesirable taste in his mouth.
His many status updates on social media have since attracted the public’s support, with many people commenting that they too have suffered the same fate at the popular West Coast spot.
Seale, in a statement, said Red Door tried its best to accommodate its patrons.
“For safety reasons we have limitations on how many people we can have inside at any time. On some nights, if we are short-staffed, we might even have to slow the intake of people so that customers can get the service they’ve come to expect,” he explained.
He added that on occasion there could be some measure of confusion regarding entry and re-entry into the club, and regretted that Red Door may have compounded the problem by not communicating this properly. (RA)
