about spike report

Introducing Spike Report, a spiking database to protect you and your mates on a night out. After recent incidents, we realised there was no viewable database on spikings in the UK. You can report an incident to the police, but you can’t view what others have reported.

With Spike Report, you can report a spiking incident but also view what others have submitted. Search by venue, city, or method of spiking. We’re all about giving you the info you need to have the safest night possible - including the date of the spiking so you know when it happened, where and how.

I was sitting in a booth and only had two drinks, both of these drinks were ordered to the table. Somehow from the bar to the table I had been spiked. The security guard was absolutely appalling she was swearing at me and was treating me like i was a drunk.

I went out with a group of friends and can't remember anything past queuing at the bar for a drink as soon as I got in. I assume I got spiked through a drink as I had no needle marks but I don't know who would have done it as I didn't put the drink down and none of my friends would have done it. I woke up the next day remembering nothing but my boyfriend told me about how he had to carry me home cause I was losing consciousness and how I could barely get words out. The next day I couldn't even stomach water and was vomiting for a whole 24 hours. I know it's not just cause I was drunk cause I hadn't had much to drink and I completely blacked out, I was also more ill than I've ever been before.

Me and my friend were both spiked and might possibly have been from a “special” drink the bartender made my friend to sober up. We joined 2 American girls on the club cause they were looking at us. We only had 3 tequila shots and one vodka cranberry drink which for us doesn’t seem a lot. We both felt very weird and my friend seemed like she was “out of it” and couldn’t remember anything which is very unusual for her. She eventually got kicked out of the club and I had to follow her out and had to beg the security to get our coats from the cloakroom. When we were out she started vomiting on the streets and was unable to stand up for at least an hour and even though I was not doing well, I had to pull myself together and help her. We eventually went to one of my friend’s house and that’s when she pointed out that me and my friend were possibly spiked.

It was terrible, I woke up in the security room. Baring in mind I had only had 2 very light drinks and I am usually very good with alcohol and had eaten and drank plenty of water before hand. I was treated appallingly by the security. They were so harsh and non empathetic towards me and then just sent me out. Telling me I was asleep in the bathrooms. I was very scared and as a result of this occurrence I would never come to this club again and would also never recommend it to anyone! I was unsure of what I had been spiked by but I know my body and this was a horrible experience. I didn’t report the incident as I believe these kinds of incidents get brushed under the rug and therefore I believe lots of women/men go through this kind of thing and don’t feel brave enough to speak about due to it not being a major issue in the limelight of society. During the time when people were injecting people in clubs I didn’t go to a club for a whole year out of fear.

He was insisting I do these very strong Mexican tequila shots. I didn’t want to. I had planned on having one alcoholic drink I didn’t know him & I was getting weird vibes. I went to the loo mid way through dinner. It took a while there was a queue & it was a long way from the table. When I came back I swallowed the rest of my drink as I was keen to leave quickly. My throat started burning my head felt hot. I just stared in disbelief I said “ did you spike my drink” he tried to shush me. I said it again. Then said he just wanted me to try it. He’d ordered two shots & poured them in my drink. I was just shocked & scared I didn’t know if there was anything else in there.

I can't recall the events entirely but I remember blacking out not long after buying a cocktail from the bar. I didn't see who did it or what happened exactly, so I can't be sure of every detail. From what I can remember, we picked a song to play on karaoke, then moments later I blacked out and woke up in the hospital at one in the morning.

I remember everything very clearly during my night out, up until going to the bar for a second time paying for drinks, as my friends card declined. The next thing I remember is lying on a bathroom floor seeing my bag, trying to reach for it but unable to move. Second thing I remember is a bouncer telling me that I needed to contact someone (I checked my call history the next day and could see I’d been struggling to contact the person I wanted to, having called names with a similar starting letter to his). I then remember my friend coming and telling my other friend ‘why weren’t you with her’ (I must have ran to the bathroom to spew, to have not been with her). Fortunately the next thing I remember is waking up safe but in a panic from having not been able to remember anything other than these snippets. I had to travel back home to my town the next day and also did not stop being sick all day. Two days after, I decided to go to A&E where they checked my oxygen levels etc and had me speak to a safe guarding officer, however they could not test my blood for drugs which I would have liked for clarification. Although, I have been told it is unlikely that 4 double vodkas (which is what I had drank) would cause blackouts. I also had black tar/ coal looking stuff in my sick. I did tell the police however they would be unable to report it without evidence of drugs in my system which would have to be done by a medical professional within 12 hours so I am still a little disappointed I hadn’t gone sooner or on the evening to a hospital. This will probably play on my mind for a while bc I obviously could have died or picked up outside by someone pretending they knew who I was.

This happened during my first year at uni, I was so scared to share as my friends kept telling me that I just got too drunk and hadn't eaten but I drink quite often and know how my body responds to different alcohols. Q Bar changes ownership every couple of months and I swear it goes from one dodgy owner to another. I see creepy dudes in there all the time and the bouncers are so scary and intimidating. It puts you off going to tell them. There was a guy who wouldn't leave me alone and kept trying to pull me away from my friends and wouldn't get the hint, the bouncers didn't care, and neither did the bar staff. I told him I would let him buy me a drink if he left me alone. I haven't let a guy buy a drink since. I started to pass out and my friends took me home, they put me in the bath and I woke up in 2 inches of vomit. I have never felt such pain, like I've been poisoned. I haven't met a lot of people who have been spiked since I moved away from Plymouth, but this happened so often in Plymouth that it became a normal part of daily conversation. That needs to change.

strange male trying to join our group, offered to buy several of us drinks and we all declined. Continued to linger around the edge of the group, shortly after going to the toilet and him following me I began to act completely out of character, became volatile, had been isolated by a male during this time and from that point was shouting “he tried to touch me” (unsure if this was same male). Ended the night in hospital after being kicked in the head by a passing man (asked him to leave me alone and got a kick to the temple for my trouble) but then friends had to take me home without treatment because police threatened to arrest me despite them being told several times that I had been spiked and physically assaulted on the street.

I was celebrating my friends 21st when I got spiked. 1 minute I was dancing and having a great night. The next minute I'd collapsed in the toilets. My friend found me and took me outside with a glass of water. I then sat nort really lucid and shaking. I got home and was shaking and sweating. My mum kept me sat up the entire night and slept by my side to make sure i was fine. I can't imagine what could have happened. I was one of the lucky ones

My family and I went to Kennedys to celebrate the new year. My cousin witnessed a man spike one of our drinks we had at our table. This man was also trying to talk to us throughout the night and made comments that made us feel uncomfortable. For example, he randomly came up to me and said “looks like I’m spending my new year with you then, doesn’t it?” But in a sinister, chilling way. There was two of them. One, who was within the dance floor area (where we were having a dance) and leaving weird comments. And his friend who continued to linger around our table. My cousin reported this to a FEMALE door member who took my cousin outside to the other (male) door staff. After a few minutes, we noticed my cousin hadn’t returned, so went to see where she was. The door staff then told us they had banned her from the bar. They had shown pictures they took of her on WhatsApp and threatened to send these to other bars so she couldn’t get access anywhere else if we caused any confrontation. I tried to talk to the bouncers, I didn’t raise my voice or try to cause an argument, I just wanted to understand why they had done what they had done. They had no reason, he said “I don’t need to give you a reason, like I said, I will send pictures of your cousin to all the other bouncers in york so they refuse to let you in”. Let me put that bluntly- WE WERE KICKED OUT BECAUSE WE REPORTED THAT SOMEONE HAD SPIKED OUR DRINK. We went elsewhere to spend the rest of our night but my cousin was in tears, she felt so unsafe.

I don't remember anything but from what I've been told there was a guy that was following me and trying to dance with me all night, he was buying me drinks and I started to act like I was really drunk, he was asking me to take me home for 20 mins and then bring me back, I then was becoming more and more unsteady on my feet, my friends had to hold me up, then they said I started to struggle to get my words out so they look me to sit down, then I became even worse and more worrying so they alerted the bouncers, they then contacted my sister to come and collect me and ended up having to put me in a wheelchair to take me into my sisters car so I could go home. It took 3 people to get me out the car and up stairs and when I woke up in the morning I had absolutely no idea what had happened. I then had the worst hangover ever, I was freezing cold, shaking, headache, body aches and nauseous all the next day, it took me over 24hrs to feel well enough to even be able to take a shower.

Man stood in close proximity to myself for a good 10 minutes without moving. All of a sudden I seen him throw something at me and it went into my drink and was clearly a pill. I confronted the guy and he laughed and walked off. 3 members of staff and security were told on the night and nothing was done we had to leave because of this. This was reported to the manager over instagram the following day and I gave very detailed timelines and descriptions of who I spoke to and where I was. Staff denied this was reported and doorman lied and said the individual left the building. This isn't true as we saw the person head in the smoking area. As we left the doorman was just stood outside the front. I was told by manager that they would review the CCTV and get back to me. Over a week later I was chasing up as I was being ignored. I then started leaving reviews and then they replied to say no CCTV footage to show this happened and doorman told them the bloke had left which was not true.

Male went from being a typical jolly drunk to almost unconscious and paralysed from waist down during a brief car ride home. He ended up in A&E being treated for hypothermia and dehydration. He would have collapsed if walking home and most likely would have passed away from choking and/or hypothermia.

I had only 3 drinks all night. The bar was extremely crowded. After my third drink, I began to be very confused, time was warped etc. I woke up with big memory black outs and 2 of my friends have also suspected that they were spiked.
