Vile promoters send texts saying ‘do not bring big fat girls’ to top London clubs
They threaten to charge more if you have ugly mates
Seedy promoters are telling punters not to bring their fat mates to some of London’s most exclusive clubs.
Promoters who work with big name clubs like Libertine, Cirque Le Soir, DSTRKT and Cafe de Paris, also assess girls by their pictures to judge whether they’re fit enough to come in for free.
One text explicitly says “do not bring any big/fat girls” while another reveals the promoter threatened a whole group would have to pay for entry to a club because one of them “wasn’t good enough”.
The same promo worker also lashes out at older clubbers, saying: “If they are really old people they might have to pay.”
In their quest to fill VIP tables with models, they demand clubbers don’t drink before turning up – as they will be breathalysed – and stipulate there must be a one to four boy to girl ratio.
These promoters, who work for agencies to fill VIP tables in some of London’s most exclusive venues, issue a list of demands for groups booking with them.
When quizzed on exclusive club Cirque Le Soir, promoter Alex who works for London Night Guide told The Tab: “They have a very strict door policy, because it’s not a massive club, so it might be the case that the overweight girl has to wait outside.
“If you’re a model, they let you in for free, they do what they want.”
On the outrageous list of demands, along with guidelines not to bring “big/fat girls” to the club, girls are told to make sure that their “make-up is on fleek” and to “look as beautiful as I can see you are.”
Promoter Mia Mamum sent the messages to girls in the hope of filling the VIP tables at Cirque in Soho which counts Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Drake among it’s clientèle.
Mamun, who also promotes for clubs in Mayfair like Libertine and DSTRKT, was unable to be reached for comment – only to say: “I’m on holiday bro.”
Cirque, which sells bottles of Champagne priced up to £120,000, has attracted attention in the past for it’s lavish nights featuring dwarves dressed as giant babies.
The promoters aren’t in control of what you pay, and a spokesperson for Cique vehemently denied they had a door policy against fat people.
A spokesperson for the upmarket club, where entry costs £20 for boys and is free for girls, said: “This has never been the policy of the club, I can’t speak for the methods used by promoters.” Before adding she was a size 24 and “drinks in the club regularly.”
