A Local Nightclub Made Heels Mandatory and Twitter Had This to Say:

A tweet from the popular Sandton Nightclub, Taboo, this weekend outraged people who have responded against the club’s dress code standards.

The tweet explicitly denied entrance to women wearing anything other than heels- a statement that left many shocked and surprised.

ROAR or sexism?

Establishments have long held strict dress codes to attract a certain crowd, but Taboo leaves us wondering about the equality of this situation.
Since then, the tweet has been deleted, but opinions online were rife with discourse.


Tweeters called out the club on the double standard between men and women’s dress codes, with one user asking:
This particular thread asked how far ROAR is entitled to go and questioned whether dress codes were really a matter of equality or generally problematic:
What do you think: Would you spend the night at a club denying you your comfortable pumps? Or do heel standards and dress codes need to be lowered back to earth? Tweet us your thoughts at @ApeironOnline.
