‘Sexist’ restaurant’s urges female guests to wear ‘sexy heels and fitted tops’

A restaurant has been branded "sexist" for its dress code, which urges females customers to wear "sexy heels and fitted tops."

Beluga Bar in Leatherhead, Surrey, hasn't even opened yet and it has been criticised.

The establishment, which has banned people wearing hoodies and tracksuits, has official guidlines on what women should wear.

It reads: "Dress code is smart casuals with jackets for men, no tracksuits, no t-shirt and women can wear skinny jeans with sexy black ankle-strap heels and with a form-fitting top.

"Alternatively, there are many different types of dresses that would look good at a bar in the summer or winter, namely a midi or bodycon dresses."

Commenting on one of Beluga's posts on social media, one user said: "Your dress code is disgusting and sexist! Should be ashamed… a lot of people will be boycotting."

One woman said that the terms and conditions are "absolutely ridiculous." She added: "I can only hope for the sake of womankind that this is some deliberate campaign by Beluga Surrey to highlight the appalling misogynism and sexism we still deal with on a daily basis. If not – shame on them."

Ahead of its official opening tomorrow (Friday, February 11) the establishment promises "good vibes."

But people have taken over their Facebook page, commenting on every post, with one woman saying: "I hope no one comes."

"Your dress code is appallingly misogynistic. If this is how you treat your customers, I pity your employees," added another person.

Beluga, which boasts a "Japanese inspired menu" and £16 cocktails, had also promised to "take the city by storm."

Reports suggest the contorversial section of their dress code has now been removed. Daily Star has contacted Beluga for comment.

In a post on Instagram the restaurant offered its "sincere apologies".

It said: "The description was inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and does not reflect the image we're seeking to promote.

"We wish to clarify that our policy is a smart dress code for men and women."
