‘Heavy’ Jewelry Barred From Exclusive Sydney Restaurant

Visible tattoos and clothing with designer labels are also prohibited.




An Australian restaurant is barring entry to anyone wearing “heavy” jewelry, as well as those with visible tattoos or wearing clothing with designer labels.

Bedouin, located in the Sydney suburb of Double Bay, posted the policy on its front window, the Daily Mail reports.

The goal is to discourage “intimidating appearances,” said Poata Okeroa, co-licensee of the business.

At least one local politician, Woollahra councilor Richard Shields, derided the rules.

“The listed restrictions would preclude a big chunk of the eastern suburbs,” he said, according to the Mail.

But Mary-Lou Jarvis, Woollahra councilor , defending the policy, saying “proprietors of businesses can choose the type of patronage they want.”


Bedouin, which is popular among celebrities, is described as a “Middle Eastern eatery and nightclub.”

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
