Dating Site to Open Bar That Bans Ugly People
Beauty is indeed only skin deep.
Dating website BeautifulPeople.com is opening a bar in Los Angeles in which only, well, beautiful people will be allowed to enter. That’s right: only people deemed good looking enough can step inside, which kind of goes against the whole “drink until the person you’re talking to is good looking” thing that bars thrive on.
So, who makes the attractive cut? The bar will have a panel of judges who determines whether you can be let in or turned away.
Those who already belong to the site will get in, while those who don’t belong must pass muster with the judges, like a beauty pageant contestant, except you can bet there won’t be any questions about how you’d achieve world peace.
Beautiful People’s managing director, Greg Hodge, justifies the move. “We listen to our members and they are fed up of going out to expensive bars, hoping to meet similarly beautiful people, only to spend the night wishing that the lighting was lower,” he said.
Looks aren’t the only way to get in, though. If you’ve got beaucoup bucks, but are a 5, you may still find yourself schmoozing with a 10 inside the club. Hodge said, “The way we see it, money can be attractive too, so on a discretionary basis we may make exceptions for certain high net-worth individuals. “
So, yeah, it’s not a vapid, totally perfect place for L.A. at all.
The bar is scheduled to open early next year, giving you only a few short months to get to a plastic surgeon and become attractive.
