Keeping this in mind, the First Brew House, Corinthians Club, NIBM, has tied up with Party Hard Drivers (PHD), a Mumbai-based driver service company, to ensure the safety of their patrons.
"As we are basically a brewery, we focus on the issue of our patrons being too drunk to go home alone. We trust PHD employees and are sure that they will ensure our guests reach home safely. Even if a girl needs to be dropped home, she can book a driver to take her home safely. It's always better to be safe than sorry," said Suketu Talekar, co-founder, Doolally Brewing Company. The place also has four bouncers to make sure that no rowdy crowd is allowed into the pub.
The bouncers at KueBar, Koregaon Park, are given special training and they keep an eye out for anyone misbehaving inside the club. There are staff supervisers to see that the bouncers are attentive and that everything in the club stays calm and smooth. "The management at KueBar is very trained. If we feel that a certain group of people might be trouble for our guests and have the potential to cause some problems, we do not let them in. The bouncers even move around the dance floor and if they spot someone out of their senses or trying to misbehave, they are escorted out of the premises," said Piyush Deshmukh, KueBar manager.
"We help our patrons with a valet service or make required arrangements to ensure that they reach home safely if they are not in a position to take responsibility for themselves. We also make sure that the ladies have a nice time when they come to party here, and are not victims of any kind," he added.
The number of security personnel at Oakwood Lounge has been increased. The lounge has also hired a female guest relation executive who can be approached by any of the female guests in case they have a problem.
"We are very strict about bookings. We do not over book the place and give bookings to guests after going through their profile. Preference is given to regular members because we know them. Any behavioral misdemeanor will not be tolerated and we also have a policy of barring service to a guest if they are over drunk and uncontrollable," said Gaurav Magoo, director of Food and Beverages, Oakwood Premier Pune.
"The staff has also been given instructions to go out of their way to provide help to any female guests in case of genuine problem," he added.
