RICHMOND, Va. — A Shockoe Bottom restaurant and bar is coming under scrutiny after a photo of its dress code was posted on social media Friday morning.
The photo shows 7 Hills Brewing Company’s code of conduct which specifically bans items such as Timberland boots, white and baggy t-shirts, doo-rags, hats, Black and Mild’s, and visible boxers.
Some viewers reached out to CBS 6 calling the code of conduct racist saying it targets the black community.
The code of conduct says the list is an effort to provide their customers and employees with a safe, secure and fun experience.
The sign also states no weapons, drugs, or liquor are allowed inside of the establishment and all men must where a collared shirt or a shirt with buttons.
Some aspects of the dress code aren’t unusual as some bars and most clubs in the city ban baggy t-shirts, Timberlands and doo-rags.
CBS 6 reached out to 7 Hills Brewing Company, but the owner or manager was unavailable to provide a comment at this time.
