A trendy bar in Australia didn't take too kindly to one patron's flowing mullet.

David Hoogland was recently booted from Print Hall, one of Perth's newest rooftop bars, after the owners decided they didn't care for his "business in the front, party in the back" look, The Huffington Post reported.

"I'm not in a gang, I don't have tattoos all over me, I'm just an everyday person," he told the West Australian.

Wearing jeans, a T-shirt and dress shoes, Hoogland was asked to take his hairdo elsewhere after just 20 minutes in the new nightspot, according to the Herald Sun.

"I agree if you're being rowdy, out of control, drunk or abusive then you should be kicked out but if you're just sitting down having a chat and a quiet social drink, I think that's pretty rude," he told the West Australian.

Hoogland has sported the mullet for more than a decade.
