Delhi restaurant does not allow customers to enter because they were wearing Indian ethnic wear

While many bars and restaurants across the globe have a dress code, disallowing customers because of Indian attire is something that is unheard of.

In a shocking incident, a restaurant in Delhi refused to allow its customers as they were wearing Indian ethnic wear. The incident allegedly occurred on Tuesday at a restaurant named ‘IVY – The Island Bar’ at the Vasant Kunj area in the national capital. A Twitter user by the name Sangeeta K Nag posted the video the microblogging site on Tuesday.

In the video, the hotel staff can be seen refusing entry to the lady and another person by citing rules that they do not allow people wearing Indian ethnic wear. “A restaurant in India allows ‘smart casuals’ but not Indian wear! Whatever happened to pride in being Indian? Take a stand!,” she tweeted.

Soon, netizens called out the restaurant’s behaviour for not letting a patron enter for wearing Indian wear.

Congress leader Sharmishtha Mukherjee called it the ‘colonial mindset’ of restaurant for not letting the customer in for wearing Indian clothes.
