Research conducted on behalf of Scotch whisky brand Monkey Shoulder has revealed that two thirds (66%) of UK adults have been put off from a night out by a number of issues including lack of toilet roll, queuing for the bar and intimidating door stewards.
The Monkey Shoulder top 10 list of “things Brits hate about nights out” was topped by ‘music so loud you can’t hold a conversation’, which 38% of respondents disapproved of, while respondents also highlighted ‘expensive food’ (23%), queue jumpers (16%) and rude or aggressive bouncers (16%) as things they hate on a night out.
The survey found that 37% of all respondents have had a disagreement with door stewards in the past – rising to 42% of men.
Rude or aggressive behaviour from security staff was cited as the most common source of disagreement.
London was found to be the region where consumers had the most grievances with door staff (44%) and the east of England reported the least (24%).
Cat Spencer, brand manager for Monkey Shoulder UK, said the research shows “how much Brits dislike the standard issue night out problems”.
