I was out clubbing last night and had a bit of a disappointing experience.
The club in question would not serve free drinking water, and when pushed were quite rude about it. When I first asked for water I was told "sorry, we don't have tap water"! I was offered Perrier instead.
I eventually got my ice water, but could not get one for the friend I was with (was told "One water for one person"). I mean, please! Give me a break! I can buy four drinks, but only get one water?
This was the case even though there was a cover charge of thirty odd bucks (which included two drinks) and I was drinking a fair amount of alcohol as well. It's not even like I went there, paid my entry fee and just drank water all night, but even then that should not be an issue. That's why you pay a cover, right? Has anyone else had this problem?
In other countries, like Australia and the UK it's against the law to withhold water in licensed establishments (e.g., http://www.dgr.nsw.gov.au/HTML/LEGISLAT ... water.html
). I had a search but couldn't find anything legislated in Singapore to that extent. Does anyone know if it's illegal to do so in Singapore?
Is this common to the Singapore clubbing scene? I find the practice totally irresponsible.
