    do you know how long a group of 15 very large women would have to wait to get in unless they bought a table at hakkasan , they might be slepping overnite just to get in, thats how they run that place

    it's really bs article.. they are framing it to make it seem they are requesting girls send pics just to book a table, but really they want pics to give them free stuff. if you want to mooch, you have to offer something.. if you are not comfortable sending pics then don't expect anything free!

    If they were offering guys a comp table, they don't require pix. I have no problem on them being called out for that.

    Right, it seemed to me that he didn't want to give away a table that normally costs 850 bucks unless he got that value in 'room appearance' or 'vibe' or whatever they call it. I'm not saying the guy isn't a ******, just that the title is misleading. People whose looks are less than his view of '9s-10s' (myself being included) gotta pay. It's why I avoid those places to begin with. The article seems to be playing around with 'reserve' and 'comp' as interchangeable, which furthers the confusion caused by the title.

    About time. Around EDC the lists were posted of admission ratios for that weekend. Both Hakkasan and Wet Republic were the only ones who stated "pics required." Just bullshit, I understand the clubs don't want ugly and fat people but you shouldn't put it out there so blatantly. With that said, me and my girlfriend are mid twenties, both skinny, and have no issues getting into clubs for free, but the atmosphere, the pushiness and the sardine packing makes it not enjoyable. Only one night is worth it AT most.

    tables at hakkasan cost more than 850$ , 850 might have been a ladies discount price , usualy they run 2000$ and up depending where they are unless it was a dead nite and then i dont think they would have cared who they let in but i think it was calvin harris so i assume tables where starting around 3 grand for him .

    I think it's not smart to do it through text messaging, so people have proof of these things and put it on the net.. If it was a Phone call it would be a ''your word against mine'' thing and papers wouldn't pick it up in the first place..

    Now that would have been sweet. A reported slight to a potential customer. A denial of a conversation as the client said there was only a conversation on the phone and what happened happened.

    And the club assumes vocal exchange when in fact texting.....so the text exchange is presented and WHOOLA! THAT would have been an interesting denial / retraction of the club's position to witness.

    It is what it is and we all were aware of what it was for clubs to comp females into their property. As was said earlier, this just takes the lipstick off the pig and shows it for what it is. Which we all knew; I think.
