We had some delicious cocktails at the Black Parrot and some were the bartenders own and they were fabulous! Really recommend, nice atmosphere, chilled and attentive service!
We booked for the two of us to visit the Black Parrot a week in advance for some birthday drinks. After making plans around this confirmation, we received an automated email telling us it was cancelled 2 days before. How this was then handled by David Brady the ‘general manager’ was terrible.
Firstly, David was incredibly rude on the phone blaming us and group on for his mix up with the booking system. Then, telling us in frustration ‘come but you must be quiet because I’m teaching’.
When we arrived at the bar, we hoped David would have calmed down enough to be at least civil and say hello- just to be clear we were neither expecting nor wanting an audience with David, no more than a standard hello or welcome would have been enough. Instead, he was again rude, ignored us and pointed to a table. He created a uncomfortable atmosphere for all.
We then had the misfortune to be forced to watch and listen to David continuously embarrass himself while holding what he refers to as his ‘master class’. This consisted of him taking the pi** out of, belittling and insulting those attending his ‘master class’, as well as a couple who innocently walked in for a drink- saying they could ‘fu*k off’ after they had left. After cheap laughs at others expense.
What proceeded was David shaming himself for an hour with boring self-indulgent anecdotes. He also thought it somehow made him interesting to swear throughout and refer to colleagues as ‘fu**ing d*cks’. The whole sad show was cringe worthy to watch and listen too- attendees laughed nervously so not to be picked on and become the butt of David’s belittling snipes.
His ‘master class’ is nothing more than an opportunity for David to stroke his own fragile ego by insulting, offending and belittling others. David would do well to attend a class on how to treat others with respect.
David in so wrapped up in himself he actually thought the reason why we were disappointed was because he couldn’t ‘spend time with us’ when in fact we were relieved David was distracted with his ‘master class’ so we didn’t have to suffer his overbearing verbal diarrhoea.
The man is a rude, insufferable joke. Save your money and time for somewhere that David Brady isn’t.
