I have been to Cliff Dive many times in the last few years, it's often a regular place to end the night dancing and always good drinks and music. Unfortunately in the recent year or so I have only ever had the worst experiences here with the door staff.
Without going into great detail and ranting, recently I have had sober friends kicked out for no reason by security guards refusing to explain their reason. Door staff being incredibly rude to myself and seeing her rude to other groups.
The last time I went my friend and I were treated so rudely. I politely requested my money back from the entry free. After walking up the stairs up to Oxford St (alone) a security guard literally chased after me yelling and demanding I come back (presumably) so that he could have a go at me. I said no and kept walking faster. He continued to follow me until I turned around and said no I'm on a public road. I felt so unsafe and so violated.
At no point in the night was I rude or non-cooperative. All I did was leave when friends were treated badly.
The security guards and door staff are clearly on a power trip. Please avoid if you actually want to end your night on a happy note. I'm hearing similar experiences as this so so often from people.
It's such a shame - this place used to be a personal fave!
