Many clubs discriminate against people due to looks but a club in Montreal let it be known that they discriminate against overweight people.
MONTREAL – Although a Montreal nightclub is distancing itself from an invitation on its Facebook page that specified “NO FAT GIRLS ALLOWED!!!!!!!!!!” people familiar with the local party scene say clubs regularly -if not so overtly -discriminate based on looks.
“Everybody knows. (Clubs) are selective,” said Stefano Apostolakos, owner of SMAN Productions, a Montreal promotions company.
A nightclub that wants to attract a certain kind of crowd will never openly turn people away based on weight, he said, but if people don’t fit in with the club’s look, a bouncer can still find some excuse to turn them away -whether it’s a long wait time, an expensive bottle service fee or claiming the club is at capacity.
