Insulting bouncers
Jun 2021 • Friends
Terrible. We queued for 30 minutes and did not get let in as one of the group was wearing trainers. Will not be returning. Awful service and insulting bouncers. The guy who was told for said trainers been previously let in to go to the toilet.

Do not bother. Terrible service from terrible staff.
After complaining to the manager of this bar, he did not listen, nor did his staff.
After receiving sexist behaviour from the barstaff, the manager decided the make me feel very belittled and insignificant.
He also tried to ‘educate’ me about the law (despite the fact that I am a lawyer) and tried to explain the situation to me, despite his little involvement.

Went on a weekend away in York with some mates. Few locals said this was meant to be one of the better places for a night out, so we gave it a try.
All dressed smartly, and the bouncer tried saying one of my mates had trackies on, when he evidently didn’t. Eventually got let in, and were given 2 tables in the corner to accomodate the 7 of us.
Better than being seperated I suppose.
One of the staff came over to take a drinks order and again asked my friend about his ‘trackies’, and we had to explain the bouncer and manager had said it was okay.
Our drinks order was taken, and then a member of staff came back to say they couldn’t make a Mojito for some reason or another. No bother, just ordered a pint instead.

Waited a whole 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and 5 minutes after the drinks arriving we were told we had 20 minutes to get out, as our tables had been reserved for a party later. Kinda mad if you ask me.

Cut to finishing our drinks and finally leaving after a crap night. You’ll have a better evening just having a few bottles in your own gaff, or going the spoons 5 mins down the road.

Pretty good

Nice bar, good music and a decent choice of drinks, staff are pretty good, and seemed quite on the ball in regards to social distancing and hygiene, I would imagine it being a lot better atmosphere without the whole coronavirus issues presented to bars, but still ok.
Would visit again if in the area

Very upsetting experience!!! I was talking to a young lady in Vudo and noticed she didn’t seem right, then found out that she is diabetic and was having an hypo. I quickly went to the bar and expand this to the bar staff and asked if I could a bit of full sugar coke to bring her around. I was told I needed to pay for it or they wouldn’t pass me some. They were 2 bar staff on and both said the same. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, they wouldn’t help this young lady out. I wouldn’t step foot in that place again if you paid me

Absolutely terrible. Wanted to go clubbing with my friends for our holiday, but they didn’t let it in because I had sneakers on??
Promotes themselves to be “a world where you can equally be one with the people and the VIP” but don’t let people in because they happened to ditch the heels that particular day? Abhorrent place really, and arrogant doormen. What even is England? Damage done, never going there again..

Vudu?...Nahhhhhhh!
Jan 2020 • Couples
This has happened a few times now, including tonight. Your doormen are trash and are certainly are on a power trip. Came to Vudu last week and the last few bouncers were kind and considerate. This particular one tonight said I was 'too far' to get in despite just coming out, as I live 5 mins away. We had been 1 other place before heading to this, our favourite place. To test this theory we headed straight to revolution, a place with notoriously strict doormen, and were able to walk in with no more than a 'how you doing guys?'. Vudu, you seem to have a mixed bag of security. Some lovely and often helpful. Others abrupt and sometimes abusive.

Poor excuse for a club,Complete dump
Dec 2019
Well i havent been clubbing for a while and i can honestly say this is the worst club ive ever been to in my life, firstly how rude and arrogant are the door staff? i was with my girlfriend, my friend and his girlfriend, one of the bouncers (who i found out later was one of the owners) asked where we were from,when we replied "Leeds" he said "Well make sure you behave yourselves" like we were there to cause trouble, my girlfriend said shall we go somewhere else, but my friend said lets go in since we're here, Big Mistake! what a complete dump,it looked like the people in there were high on drugs, ordered several drinks for us all and my girlfriends glass was dirty, we stayed about 30 to 40 mins and left,they were people in there who looked well underage in my eyes, i will never ever step foot in that place again if im ever in york again, the place stinks of urine and bad BO,and the owner is so dam rude, i dont think rats would even live there, never again will i visit this place.

Ignorant, rude door staff
Dec 2019 • Friends
I’ve been in 2 minds weather or not too post this so thought I would wait and think about it but decided to. What has happened to this place. Used to go to this place a lot back in the day when Mike brown was there. After having a great night out with my work we decided to go head to yourself. Joined the queue with everyone else and when about to head in the door staff just said no. I then asked why but didn’t not give me an answer. I was not rude or drunk. Yes I had been out a long time but so had all of us and was conducting myself in a well behaved manner. I’ve worked on the doors a very long time ago in York. I was pretty appalled by some of the sights they did let in. One of my colleagues paid to get in with £20 and got let’s save more then £20 back.
