This Bar Offers ‘Angel Shots’ To Help Women Stay Safe
Here's a shot we wish every bar would start serving.
First date? Blind date? Bad date? All of them can be pretty scary and you might know the feeling of simply wanting to get out of there as soon as possible.
Thankfully, an English bar’s clever idea to help women seems to be spreading across the globe.
We wrote about the “Ask for Angela” policy that one bar in the U.K. gained attention for back in November, and now a similar idea has popped up at a bar in Florida.

A sign in the women’s restroom at Iberian Rooster restaurant in St. Petersburg reads simply, “Are you on a date that isn’t going well?”
The sign continues, “Is your Tinder or Plenty of Fish date not who they said they were on their profile? Do you feel unsafe, or even just a tad bit weird?”
The suggestion? Order an “Angel Shot.”
Ordering the shot tells the bartender or server that you’re feeling unsafe or need help.
“The goal for this place was to be a safe place where people can go on a romantic date,” owner Russell Andrade told The Tampa Bay Times. “We don’t want someone else to ruin a good a time.”
Here’s what happens if you order the special shot:
– If the shot is ordered neat, the bartender will escort you to your vehicle.
– Ordered with ice means the bartender will call a ride for you, like Uber or a Taxi.
– With lime, the restaurant will call the police.
