LA Bar Not Letting 'Ugly People' Inside Will Open Soon


If you’re not a 10, better hit the dive bar down the block.

The man who started BeautifulPeople, Greg Hodge, is opening a Los Angeles bar for beautiful people only. Yes, that’s right. Isn’t that every bar in L.A. anyway, you ask? Yes, but this is the “VIP room” for beautiful people. Like the kind of people who burn your retinas when you stare too long. Think Leonardo DiCaprio girlfriend-type.

What madness is this?

Greg Hodge says that they are just following the site’s users’ wishes, as they are apparently tired of going on nights out surrounded by people they don’t consider pretty enough.

And who decides that?

Here is Greg. He looks like he sells rotten tomatoes out the back of a Hummer by the side of a highway. What does he have to say for himself?

“The idea for the bar springs from the website,” he told, saying that in an ideal world, we “would look across the bar and see a person’s spirit or soul,” but that’s simply not the case.

“The fundamental principle of human nature is that we all initially at least want to be with someone we’re attracted to,” he continues. “I certainly believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the biggest problem with the online market is people being disingenuous in their profiles. We give an accurate representation of what it is we have.”

In perhaps the greatest excuse ever as to why the bar exists for BP’s only, Greg says: “Being ugly is not a protected characteristic.” Like under discrimination laws? Yes, you can marginalize them (us) all you want. No rights for the uglies.

What will the bar look like?

Here’s some concept art for this extremely discriminatory bar.

It may seem like a classy bar when you fist take a look.

To get into this exclusive bar (if you are not ugly, do not forget!) you have to be a member of the online club.

Applicants must submit head shots, body shots, and a profile.

Greg says “It’s like a microcosm of society.”

But Greg argues, even though the concept “ruffles some feathers,” his bar and online club are open to every culture and religion—you can worship who or what you want, you just have to be super hot while you do it.

“People want to be attracted to each other, everyone in there will be attractive,” the former club owner from London assures us. “It’s like a microcosm of society.” 

The photo belongs to a member by the way.

“We get backlash that it’s discriminatory,” he admits, “but we’re simply owning it.”

Yep, Greg just says that, nothing more. 

To join the site, applicants have to pass a rating process where existing members vote on applicants over a 48-hour period based on photographs and a brief profile.

Since the site’s launch in 2002, over 11 million people have been rejected. The site currently boasts a global total of around 800,000 members.

Beautiful People is set to open in February 2017. Your facial surgery should be healed by then. Let us know if you get in!
