‘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.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
