One restaurant in Florida is doing its part to help women escape bad dates. A discreet sign in the restroom of Iberian Rooster in St. Petersburg gives instructions on how women who feel unsafe on a date can discreetly ask a bartender for help.

"Are you on a date that isn't going well?" the sign reads. "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 sign continues. It then instructs them to order an angel shot.


If customers order an angel shot neat, a bartender will escort them to their car. If they order it with ice, the bartender will call an Uber or Taxi for them. And if they order it with a lime, the restaurant will call the police.

"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."


Iberian Rooster isn't the first establishment to come up with a code like this. A bar in London posted a similar sign in its restroom, and Andrade and his staff were inspired by this one at another bar in the UK, which went viral on social media.

Andrade said that, thankfully, no customers have had to order the angel shot yet.

"I'm surprised to hear people are just talking about this," he said. "We didn't put the sign up for any attention. That sort of goes against the point."
