THIS IS THE WORST ESTABLISHMENT IN JONESBORO!! one of my buddies came in for the weekend we went to the cowboy last night to have some drinks and see if we knew anyone up there to hangout. I was dressed in some BKE jeans and an orange polo shirt and brown shoes my friend had some true religion jeans which had the bigger opening at the bottom and a black shirt with yousemite sam on it. we got to the door and were denied to get in. first the bouncer said that i had to tuck my shirt in all the way around I did so he then hassled me about my hat which i took off and was gonna throw it in the car. He then got to my buddy and said well he cant go in because his pants were to baggy....Seriously how many baggy true Religion jeans has anyone seen...Exactly none. I had a pair of cargo shorts in the car so we wentto the car and he changed to cargo shorts and i took my hat off. we than went back to the door to get in. upon returning the bouncer said well you all cant get in because you have been denied! the thing that was weird was he let a few people in front of us get in who had their shirts untucked all the way around and had baggier jeans than me and my friend combined. the bouncer said this is a private club and we can let whoever we want in. My whole qualm with that is I HAVE A DAMN MEMBERSHIP IN WHICH I PAID FOR SO IT MAKES NO SENCE FOR THEM TO DENY ME FOR A MEMBERSHIP THAT I HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR. Whiles leaving we said that if we were white there would not have been an issue at this point a cop jumped us his name on his badge was J. SHIPMAN (HES A FUxING DIK) AND TOLD us how he was gonna throw us in jail and started going off. I calmly explained my case and he told me that i had to leave the property... Cops just because you have a badge does not mean you can talk to people anyway you want. Anyways On our way out we saw a bouncer that i went to school with and asked him if there was anything wrong with our outfits and he said no they were with in the rules of the establishment he then said there is nothing he can do to get us in without ruffling any feathers which is completly understandable thsi is his job. Sorry about the rant and rave but had to get this off my chest. That Fat Cowboy at the front door is really a racist Fuk and he will get what is coming to him one Day

It's illegal to deny access to their business based on race. But as you and Electric Cowboy prove, racism and lawlessness go hand in hand; just as fear and hate and prejudice do. All of this is un-American .

The electric Cowboy is a hangout for losers and trash. It is such a shame the Jubilation or 501(Club) are no longer in business. The dumb-as-stumps and Hefty so-called bouncers just try to act tough because thats the only chance they get in life at being in charge of something. I'm sure the officer was working a 2nd job as security and thinks he's better than anyone else. Alot of the 2nd job officers let the position go to their heads.(Not all of them) Jonesboro has no good choice for night life. Just stock up on beer and entertain at your house!

yep it is really rediculous you think the way this economy is if you want to go have a drink with your friends they would not turn down buisness... Well i guess that is why the bouncer is a bouncer he has no common sence. I really do not see how they can deny 1 person and let someone get in if they are dressed alike

actually i was outside and heard all the cussing the guy was doing that was denied in. THAT is when the officer went over there and the only issue he addressed was the cussing. Next time wear clothes that fit....you may just get to walk right on in

wow someone mentions the cowboy and here come all the haters out of hiding to bad mouth it. i frequent the electric cowboy about every other weekend and i just do not see all this "racism" everyone talks about. to tell the truth i see more "white" people get turned away than "black" people. i also think its great that they have uniformed police officers working there.....makes me feel safer. why is it that when certain people are told no they automatically scream color? it boils down to the fact the electric cowboy is a private club and they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime. just like you go to mcdonalds......no shoes no shirt....no service! how long did club red last? look at the brickhouse.....wanna see a good fight or someones purse get stolen....go to the brickhouse on tuesday nights!

not to mention their karaoke sucks. really sucks. hard. they have crappy song selection and the dj is a douchebag. i stopped going months ago and so did about 10 other people i know, all for the same reason. if they'd get a different dj i'd start going back.

I stopped going to the EC last year because a bouncer hasseled me about my clothes and hat. I was dressed according to the dress code printed up front by the door and the bouncer who told me to take off my hat was wearing a cowboy hat. Seems to me they have one dress code put out front and another one not printed for inside and neither apply to women because I never saw one have to tuck in a shirt or remove a hat or anything else.

Well. Those guys in there are all racist. If you are black please donít go there because you will not have fun. The only reason they are still in business is because there is no other club since they are sabotaging any new club. That police man is retarded. Most of the guys that works there are racist. There is even a fat black guy who works there and he thinks he is white. He is probably color blind. I know there is red/ green color blind but not black. Save you money and stay home. People wondered why the south is like 50 years behind. They donít know itís all comes down to this kind of prejudice

First of all the funny thing is that the people who post things on here about the Electric Cowboy have no sense on how to compose a sentence, or how to use proper grammer. It is so funny to sit here and read the postings about how people bash the place, and call it a redneck dive, look at the way you type and talk. Do you really sit and read the crap that you type or just type and then send it off. If you dress accordingly to the dress code that is posted at the front door then you will have no problems getting in. If you are just going to have a good time and see people you know, then leave the B.S. at home, cut the childish act, and be a mature adult and go by the rules. Most of the people who do work there this is a second job to them, extra income, as well as the uniformed Police Officers who work there.

I've never been to the Cowboy and don't plan on it but have been told by friends that it is a racist place. They just let a small quota of black in per night.

The issue at hand is that correct it is a privat club which everyone has to pay their membership dues to get in. however when they post a set of rules on a big board and people come to the place and get denied entry even though they are dressed according to code that is an issue. Unless you deliberately do not dress up to code they should let you in. but they let 1 person decifer what is appropriate and yes everyone has prejudices to a certain extent. i have been denied entry because of a sports jacket....Really a sports jacket however they let a few people go in who had on sports jackets as well. Thats my biggest issue. If people want to go to a club and dress to code there should be no issues but of course we see it all the time where there is an issue.

I'll still trying to figure out why anyone with the slightest amount of class would go there anyway. The second hand smoke is enough to run me off. I won't even get into the type of people I've met up there.

I've had afew problems with the bouncers in the past. But I can't say anything bad about any of them

Here are some dress code hints

#1- When they ask you to tuck your shirt in all the way just tell them "Ok. But may I do it in the restroom?". They always say yes. Whether you do it or not is your choice

#2- A easy solution for anyone that wears their pants alittl baggy is to pull them up shortly before reaching the door.

The rules are pretty simple to bend

hey seriously, you that started this thread

is it true that ontime was able to hear you being ugly in the parking lot after you couldn't get in?

do you think that was the best way to handle your rejection?

the bouncer/door guy is there to make sure the trouble makers stay out, if you're the kind of person that throws a screaming cusing fit in a parking lot, maybe it had nothing to do with the way you were dressed, sounds like they made the right call not to let you in

I've never been to Electric Cowboy because they only have suck ass bands all the time. No class at all !!!!!!! The only time I considered going was Black Oak played there ONE time. Black people should stay away from all the KKK members and bigoted red neck christians that frequent that dive. Nothing like a psycho christian spewing his racist bigotry while praising his child raping christian jesus !
