Cape Town hot spot Saint Lounge has taken to social media to name and shame patrons over their non-payment.

Cape Town hot spot Saint Lounge has taken to social media to name and shame patrons over their non-payment.

The club had social media users reeling after posting pictures of “regulars” who recently ran up high tabs.

On Saturday, Saint issued a “warning” on their social media accounts to patrons who had not settled their bills.

It added: “Should you not pay your balance within the stipulated time, we will have no choice but to make your identities public on social media with your outstanding amounts”.

However, it seemed the friendly warning was ignored, and the popular lounge decided to drop some bombshells on Sunday.

Saint then published pics of those who dodged their drinks bills, hailing them as “most wanted”.

Tagging them in the posts, they shared: “We have reached out to you numerous times. In the form of phone calls, emails, and text messages yet we have not received a response.

“Please pay what you owe Saint Lounge with immediate effect.

“We have many expenses and responsibilities and your failure to make payment has affected our business and many families. We have a duty to pay suppliers, staff, artists, talents, agents, attorneys, the city of Cape Town, government, and contractors, they too have expenses and responsibilities, same with the people they need to pay to.

Saint then appealed to the public to make the posts go viral – which they did.

It added: “Failure to pay will result in extreme measures, we will continue to post you every week until you have cleared your bill”
