Respond to Review of Georgetown Liquor Company
by kissme926

Review: We were trying out different vegetarian restaurants and stopped at GLC for some early dinner... I had not seen anything on Happycow saying this was an adult-only place, and besides, maybe "liquor company" was just a cute name and kids were still allowed. Further, I had called previously to ask what was on the kid's menu, and a guy on the phone very sleepily said that you just order off the main menu. So, when we got there, I went in first with everyone waiting in the car to see if this was a cool place, good for families, clean, etc. etc. The place looked mostly like a bar and the waitress very abruptly told me "no kids. we're a bar!" And so I was like, uh, ok!! And turned and left. She could have been nicer and said, "oh I'm sorry (with a smile) I wish we could but due to the fact that we're just a bar that's just not allowed..." It was onward to find another classier, family-friendly veg restaurant. Sometimes my husband and I do get a sitter and go out, just he and I. But because of that unpleasant experience, I doubt I'd want to come here with kids or without! Maybe one day when they have nicer people working there I can come back and write about the food and more pleasant experiences.

Cascadia, you know better than to bring your kids to a place called liquor company, or yourself if you don't drink for that matter. It is not uncalled for to challenge her notion that the cafe is at fault. They are a bar. The people here are really nice. Don't know any BARS that are kid-friendly, they aren't allowed in!!!

I could totally see how a place named "Georgetown LIQUOR Company" could be confused as someplace Kid Friendly.

If you do not care for a persons review, fine. That said, the comments above were uncalled for to say the least. As a vegan parent of vegan kids and as someone who generally does not drink, I still like the option of going to establishments that do serve alcohol, including with my kids. I appreciate the original review and I do NOT assume that because a place is a bar or similar that it is automatically NOT kid/family friendly - many ARE!

kid friendly?! i think it raises more questions about your parenting and judgment rather the establishment. why would you bring kids to a dark bar, veg or not?
