Re: locals only admitted at Talacker bar in Zurich!!!

Maybe it was just a private event and the OP got the wrong end of the stick?

Not sure where the OP is from, but any person claiming to have been treated unfairly would have reported to authorities.

EDIT: OP claims to be an Italian national

Re: locals only admitted at Talacker bar in Zurich!!!

Find this interesting.....went there a week or so ago, bought a drink, ordered in English as I'm not confident with my German abilities or accent (i should try harder) but then didn't get served again. I put it down to looking young (I know it's a hard life) or the bar staff just having an off day????

As in, they flat-out refused to serve you?

Re: locals only admitted at Talacker bar in Zurich!!!

No not at all. Which is why I didn't think anything of it until reading this. As in using my best getting served eye contact skills and actually going to order and being ignored.

It was probably nothing, I was a barmaid for years and sometimes you just miss people or don't like the look of them so try and avoid serving them, which is why I put it down to the age thing.

We're planning an 'youngsters' event there on Fri so will report back.

because it makes no logical sense whatsoever.
I would tend to agree with you my friend but then racial discrimination does not subscribe to logic.
To be honest, I cant think of a single instance where discrimination of any sort makes logical sense


having said that, I also find it hard to believe that in a country like Switzerland and Cosmopolitan city like Zurich, people would be able to get away with explicit discrimination as mentioned by the OP

(subtle under the cover situations exist every where in the world where you have more than one race)

I was just about to post that. I bet the OP is sitting back, laughing that deep, menacing troll-laugh that only trollio-trolleroos can laugh.

But I could be wrong. For once.

Re: locals only admitted at Talacker bar in Zurich!!!

I guess we should remove the whole thread if we know the OP is looking at it and not responding. The burden of proof lies with the accuser.

Re: locals only admitted at Talacker bar in Zurich!!!

As said, no point discussing this any further until it has been checked out as true, which I very much doubt.
