Pams not as bad as you make out u think shes only there to do a job not be your best friend!

lmao about all the comments about 'pam' who is she? who ever she is she seems very unpopular. I dont like queer what so ever, been dragged in there a few times with mates and hated it every time, that downstairs bit was a bit more tolerable but the well expensive drink prices just made me leave. Its s*it, i'd never go back in there. and that morning glory s*it what ever it is what goes on downstairs, is the worse place appart from essential i have EVER been to in the village, i paid through my arse to get in walked around and walked straight back out. its wank.

Pam is the silly cow who stands on the door n gets paid 4 checkin out the girls or guys which ever she fancy's that night! She's f*cking sh*t at her job n even worse in bed. She's a massive coke head, and can't believe she's lasted so long, must be all those blow jobs she's givin N.M.S.

cheers for who ever it was who let me know who 'pam' is, i will have a look at her next time am in the village.


I like it during the day to have a drink or bite to eat, but night it's s*ite, full of pill/coke head, pam is horrid and very rude to everyone. Makes me laugh though how so many gay guys, alot of friends say they hate it and we should boycott, but they're the first the queue for the fitlads party or bender etc

The doorstaff are appauling the way I have seen them treat some of the people, when they haven't done anything wrong, Pam has a disgraceful attitude and feels like she always has a constant chip on her shoulder to take out on others, very unprofessional and makes life hard for the people who want to just have a good time... A Bully who should be taken off those doors.

i dont like queer im suprised there isnt a lot of accidents cause all the people in there have there heads up there own arsepossers of the village just cause you love your self guys dosent mean everyone else dose!As for Pam i think everyone should back off shes not that bad if everyone knew how much stress you get while you work a door and how annoying people are when there off there faces maybe the comments wouldnt be that bad...

Awful place. There are much better bars on the strip - and not many that are worse than Queer.

Anonymous says...

i love morning glory! what everyone says about pam is spot on tho! bad attitude and gives customers evils when they walk in...horrible

Personally i dont like the bar... Its pretencious and disgusting. Why would you want to spend your night in a bar thats full of attitude... Your doorstaff need to work on the people skills, there attitudes are a disgrace...

i think that it is great and that there is a good chance of copping off up there becouse ther is somany diffent types of lads

I definately agree with one of the comments above. It is and can be a very hard job to do working as a door supervisor, i think people tend to take doorstaff the wrong way. Its hard to keep a smile on you face whilst working through the night, everyone being drunk and rowdy and the doorstaff have to deal with them. From my point of view you dont go to a bar to get smiles off the doorstaff, i think some people need to back off from the doorstaff and leave them to do there jobs. If you are going to keep attending the venue then quit complaining about it.

The music is very satisfying and good on the ears in the Queer Bar.

pams sound just cos u cant get in cos u got no id!!!!!!!!!!

came from dublin last week and spent 4 days in manchester and visited queer, have to say we went back every day, bar staff were lovely, food was great but i have to agree wit some of the comments on the female door staff (presume its pam) the night i was there she stood at the top of the steps wit her back to the dance floor and had her head stook in her mobile phone the whole night while anything could have been happening behind her, as a door man in belfast u would be sacked for that !

I was there last night and was shocked by an incident down stairs , where a stright girl and lad beat up on a black guy. This happend on the dance floor infrint of rhe DJ box and the door staff took ages to arrive ... Later on the same girl " who cut here foot and boyfriend .. Beat up the same poor lad again whilst door staff looked on ! Are we safe in your club!

Anonymous says...

I seen this same incident and the doorstaff did take too long to arrive where is the communication between the dj and the doorstaff but to b fair the doorstaff did try and stop the incident outside but was way out numbered by the people involved

Yes I have been a regular satnight visitor to Queer 5years
and have seen it go down hill.I also have seen a major incident that started just by a pushing of two lads,it took ages for staff to deal with considering they have cctv down stairs.The main thing i dont like is glass collectors pushing you about on the dance floor and always trying to
clear your unfinished drink.AXM on a sunday night when they have a turn on the stage is best night i have had in the village.

Queer was fine when we visited during the day, bar staff fine but sounds like they have a huge problem with door staff - 1 person can ruin a reputation easily it seems. I would be doing something about this if it was my place. Sorry.

Anonymous says...

Full of queens but its a good night the doorstaff aint there to be your mate they dont drink on the job they have to stand on a door all night around drunk people and pill heads to 10 oclock in the morning
