This Bar Just Introduced Raised The Drinking Age To 25 To Keep Out Young People

We All Remember When...

We All Remember When...

In the United States it's 21. In parts of Canada, it's 19. In the United Kingdom,Australia, other parts of Canada, and a host of other places around the globe, it's 18. Assuming you live in a country where alcohol is legal, you'll remember the time you became legal and you were able to walk in to a bar and buy a drink (without using fake ID).

Then again, perhaps you don't remember. Maybe it's a little hazy for obvious reasons....

When The Novelty Is Fresh

When The Novelty Is Fresh

Either way, you have to admit that drinking is a little more rowdy when the novelty that you're actually allowed to do it is still relatively fresh, as opposed to a few years later when you've gotten used to the idea and it's no longer a big deal.

There's a bar in New York that no longer wants its patrons who fit the latter, to have to put up with those who fall in to the former category.



Age Raised To 25

Age Raised To 25

According to Press Union, Phil's Crummy Corner bar in Brooklyn, raised the minimum drinking age in its establishment to 25 years. As far as we know, outside of certain states in India, there is no official law which prevents anybody from drinking until they are 25, certainly not in New York.

However, is it up to the individual bar themselves to decide who they let drink or is it an act of discrimination?

In fact, the change comes in the wake of a meeting of locals recently, who vented frustration at the noise levels and complained of other things such as bottles being left in the street.

"You will be shocked about the number of conversations you can hear from my bed," said on resident. "They're animals. Friday and Saturday night, it's like animal town."

Press Union also reports that there have been noise complaints numbering in to the hundreds over the past few years concerning the Phil's Crummy Corner, with partying often carrying on until 4am.

So, it would seem in an effort to appease locals and prevent any further action which could potentially ruin business completely, Phil's has hired a bouncer to check ID's and ensure that nobody of a disruptive and noisy age be allowed in!
