We are deeply disturbed by the act of spiking in our city. Gorilla is our home and we want anyone who comes here to feel safe.
We just want to address this issue openly and honestly so that our guests and our team feel reassured. if you have any ideas/ways we can improve please get in touch.
Here are a few things we are working on:
We have increased our security presence and have appointed additional staff members as a wellbeing team; If you need any support our staff will be there for you.
We are more than happy to cling film your drinks. we will also be discarding any drinks left unattended. If you have any concerns about your drink bring it straight to us.
We have a safe space set up in gorilla; if you need to take a minute or if something happens to you we will do everything to keep you safe.
We will also be making sure that anyone who seems highly intoxicated will not be leaving alone or with a stranger- please don’t be offended if we challenge people you are with.
We absolutely hate that we have to live in fear of this, none of us deserve to feel scared to go out and have fun.
If you have any concerns about someone, please come straight to us. we love gorilla and are so grateful to have some amazing nights. We don’t want these nights being ruined for anyone. We are absolutely committed to keeping you safe.
If you need us, we are here.
Love, Emily, Em & The Gorilla Family xx
