Julu 4th, @011 – BlackFinn,
Here, I am placing a complaint about an establishment and understanding that little will be done unless someone speaks out.
Will I am speaking out, I just had a conversation with the General Manager, James Feller , I listen to what He says his employee said happen on the 4th of July. Why do people lie? This guy is such a BIG LIAR . If what he says occurred there that night, charges would have been filed upon the person arrested. Who wants to go on with the particulars. Just know that Blackfinn is full of bull-crap. Just look up all the complaints on the internet about Blackfinn. Why doesn't Addison do something about it?
HEY GUYS CHECK YOUR BANK STATMENTS AFTER YOU LEAVE BLACKFINN – Hey guys please check your back and credit card statments if you ever go to Blackfinn which I do not recommend it.
I went thier with my firends, and after few weeks when I got my credit card statment; I saw that blackfinn charged me twice for the same ticket. I am now in the process of disputing those charges.
They think, I was drank and I do not remember. But the funny part is that I do not drink, and the drinks I bought where for the girl who went with me.
never been there, never will – WOW!! I am a white male and after reading about the racial events that sounds like take place often, I can tell you I will not support. I was directed to this site through the Margarita Ball, do they know about this? This is one of the most prolific charitable organizations in Texas. Being very involved with Charities I can tell you most charities have a ZERO tolerance for racism. Shame on Blackfinn. This is 2011 (not that is was right 50 years ago) How can a business survive with such a archaic attitude. Not only is this ethically unacceptable but illegal. Blackfinn: Is this is how you really feel, pack your hoods and get the hell out of the great state of Texas.
Racist, Racist, Racist (Must be stopped) – OK! Clearly there is a problem!!! A major one! On 4/11/2011 I decided to go to BLACKFINN with some family and friends to hang out. When I got to the door the manager and the door guy told me I couldent get in. I asked why not? They told me that my jeans were to long and to wide. (WTF). Thats right, to long and to wide!!! Not only have I been there before and there were no problems with my jeans, the jeans I had on were 40 in the waist, on my but with a belt, and the length was 30. I am 5'11 so they were short. These were some strink to fit jeans, which were tight. Besides me I watch them turn away almost every black male that walked up to the line for silly reasons. They let all the white folks in no matter what they were wearing. I sat at the front door for about 10 mins and watch them do this. People were getting in with shorts, hats, jeans that were hanging to the floor, but I couldent get in because I was out of dress code. I had on a nice fitted button down shirt that fit, some fitted jeans and some boots! WOWZERS!!! REALLY!!!!! Because I didnt live that far I decided to go home and change to come back and prove a point. (By the way did I mention that I am a teacher)? They didnt know this all they saw was a black man with a beard they didnt want in their club. I came back to the club in a SUIT!!!! with a bow tie. Paid to park my car and went to the front door. Once at the the door they said to me now thats what I'm talking about. I aske them so is this what yal want? He said yes, mind you I am the only person that look like their going to church in the club. I looked and told them well these dress paints are bigger than my jeans I had on. They look at me with the DUMB FACE! Lost of words for them, had no response for that. Once in the club a member of the staff that watched the entire thing for beggining to end walked up to me and said just to let you know they was hateing on you the first time you came, and nothing was wrong with what you had on. BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!! I will follow up on this with the Better Business Bureau of Texas, the news, and the City of Addison. Its not right. Not only am I a black male I am one with a education so therefore, I know what I need to do to help stop this madness!
Loved it until the racisim started :( – If there was a zero...I would put it.
I'm very disappointed in Blackfinn....that breaks my heart to say that because I loved the place before last night =(. If you google reviews on Blackfinn you'll see quite a few bad reviews regarding racist and people being singled out regarding dress code when there is many, many people wearing the same kind of stuff. I knew that before I booked the party, but thought maybe a couple people just had a bad experience or were truly "ghetto" and trying to say they were singled out. But WOW!!!! We had a friend show up that had some jean shorts on and they told him he needed a belt on...well...he had a belt on. He was also wearing a flat bill hat faced forward and they told him "you better not turn that hat sideways"...he hadn't planned to turn it sideways??? Really? So while we're on the dance floor they came and pulled him out and kicked him out. Why let him in if you're going to completely embarrass him in front of everybody? Why make a scene like that? If there is a dresscode, you should enforce it at the door. Don't pull him off the dance floor while we're having a good time and freaking kick him out in front of all his friends. So if that wasn't enough, he drove all the way to Arlington, put jeans on and drove all the way back for them to say he couldn't come back in. SERIOUSLY??? We talked to the manager at the end of the night and enforced we will never come back and I will personally tell everybody I know to not step foot in there. I'm truly disappointed. And the great party I was looking for to celebrate my best friends 29th birthday was a bust. The SADDEST part is, when we were talking to the staff and the manager about being racist and I even talked about the reviews they said "I know, I know...I'm sorry." Really, you know and it should be ok??? WOW...
RACISTS: WHITES ONLY – THIS BUSINESS AND IT"S Managers promote Racism and would prefer WHITES ONLY!!!
DO NOT Spend your money here.
After horrible service and watching minorites be turned away for minor things like saying a man's real eye glasses were too tinted and even a guy in a blazer's pants were too urban fit. I must say this buisness uses dresscode to enforce a WHITES ONLY operation in 2010.
After spending money in the bar for 2 hours I went to get my cellphone and was denied re-entry because I was wearing a dogtag. A small Tiffany and CO. dogtag with a Marc-Style Blazer jacket and nice gray pants. I was so-called out of dress-code. I am a successful stylist, and designer and was denied entry for dress. LOL!!! It was not my dress but yet the color of my skin and the skin of the 12-15 other minorities whom were turned away for so-called strict dress rules; all of which who were professional in dress and very-well groomed.
They refused to let me even go in to get my wife and went in and asked her to leave and caused a scence inside with her. They even added extra charges and tips and refused to remove them and threatened her with taunts. The manager used profanity and said we don't have to let "you people" in here if we dont want to.
The general manager James Faller even went as far as to say, " We can do whatever the hell we want, cause we reserve the right to keep you and your Hip-hop stuff out if we don't want the in under dress code."
It was so disturbing becuase as a couture designer I dont even have a hip-hop style. But according to Faller all Blacks do and necklaces are a trademark of this style which their business does not support.
Faller also refused to give names of any higher or corporate contacts sighting that he was the only person I was allowed to talk to cause company policy is to stop complaints at the local level...WOW!!!
So according to Mr. Faller, Corporate compliants stop at him.
THIS IS THE MOST RACIST Business I have ever encountered and I advice anyone. NOT TO WASTE YOUR TIME at the PLACE..
SERVICE: Horrible DRINKS AND FOOD: Below Average
THE ARE RACIST AT THIS LOCATION:
Prejudice at BlackFinn – To whom it may concern, on many occassions i have visited Black Finn in addison, tx on every encounter i get a hard time about getting in stating my clothes arent fitting me right or i cant wear a hat and when i observe white american guys around me dressed the same as i am and i feel and i am VERY discriminated on as an african american man. Friday 05/29/10 their was an discrepancy where i was told to leave due to management stating i stiffed a cover. I am a business owner and feel very OFFENDED by this action. Ive been coming to this establishment over 4 years and all i receive is problems after problem. AS QOUTED BY EMPLOYEES OF BLACK FINN "MANAGEMENT DOES NOT WANT AFRICAN AMERICAN GUYS AT BLACKFINN." Never have i had any other trouble with any other bars in addison always BLACKFINN. I understand keeping a liitle order but its
become unbearing. THE POINT OF THIS IS TO TREAT EVERYONE FAIRLY REGARDLESS OF RACE. This issue needs to be addressed, i will contact a civil rights attorney regarding my legal rights. Please have the owner contact me regarding this issue. Many african americans are stating the same issues with blackfinn.

They have an awesome pation, great food and it looked like Happy Hour Specials daily! If you're in Addison I would highly suggest BlackFinn!!!
