Racially profiled at my own prepaid prebooked birthday night out
Jan 2017
Right so here it goes RACISM AT ITS FINEST IN NOTTINGHAM VOLT NIGHTCLUB. Here's the group photo 20mins before we left, as you can see the boys are wearing shirts.. my brother butttoned up his shirt, & the other guy put his shirt on as we was leaving okay. So it's my birthday I'm a young mum who rarely goes out so we planned this big do for me, paid £300 to a promoter for our VIP table we had bottles waiting queue jump and so on.. so we arrive at the club to be told.. "We do not fit the criteria" when we was what criteria.. there was no answer the Facebook page shows dress code as "dressy". Like I say I never go out so I've made a big effort hair did make up did dress and heels! For them to embarrass me like that in front of my guests & the rest of volt and propaganda customers.. Again as you can see, 10girls 4boys a big group which we did confirm with them when booking.. we are all dressed up to the nines. (As a black person we always have to go the extra mile anyway to make sure we can get in especially the guys) They made us wait on the other side of the queue while they let every white person in *in trainers, caps, green bombers & tshirts* we were stood there like yes I will say it.. MONKEYS. Bouncers deliberately provoking the boys in our group. So I asked who did I need to cut from the group to get in.. No one NONE of you are coming in.. Why? NO answer again. It became apparent it wasn't us who didn't fit the criteria, it was our skin colour!!! When we mentioned this the bouncer was in complete DENIAL! We kept asking for the manager as it was "at the managers discretion" well he was on the door with his ear piece on telling me "the manager isn't gonna come down for this" POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!! We waited approx 20mins before someone came to us, no introduction jus ready to throw our money back at us, no apologies, no explanation. We asked to find out what the problem was.. the bouncers and the lady spoke amongst themselves and still couldn't give us a reason why.. "they're just saying no" At this point we are about to leave, we see 3 other black males in the queue.. sounds selfish but it's my birthday but I prayed they didn't get in.. so we could confirm our thoughts.. & infront of our eyes they was also turned away! It then became clear.. The criteria was White skin.. Something none but 2 in my group had. You cannot take money from someone, prebooked them in and decide they don't fit the criteria upon arrival.. I fitted the criteria when you took my money this time & the 3 previous bookings before.. so what changed?

I booked a booth here for my birthday and they tried to totally rip me off but didn't work as we took them to court and we won :) We had no refund and they are
racist as they are very known to not let big groups of black people in.. Deffinatley would never go again.. pryzm or ink are the best clubs to go to if you are in Nottingham! :)

booked a private booth upstairs for my daughter 21ST BIRTHDAY...£250 ..in march 2016..
ON ARRIVAL TOLD NO BOOTH AVAILABLE, and got seated in a horrible area downstairs...which we did not want, too small area for 16 people..
so after complaining for 30 mins, we got a few complimentary free drinks to calm us all down, at this point demanded a refund WHICH WAS PROMISED BY ASSISTANT MGR AND THE FLOOR MGR...WITHIN 10 WORKING DAYS....we all left after about 30 mins and went to a descent club nearby....
after two months and roughly about 45 phone calls, still no refund....AND ALL MESSAGES GO STRAIGHT TO ANSWERPHONE......
horrible place with low life management run by children who don't care about anything...
SO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU BOOK, AND MAKE SURE YOU GET CONFIRMATION EITHER IN WRITING OR BY EMAIL...

Nice venue. Drinks were reasonably priced. However, the dance floor was quite congested as doormen continuously let people in all night even though the venue had reached its capacity.
