What are the rules about kids in bars?

Jump to last reply

I'm a little shakey on what's allowed and what isn't in the US.

We once took my daughter, then 10, to see Ahmad Jamahl at the Iridium (she fell asleep in the middle of it.) I think we had dinner there though.

The same trip we went into a bar at the Roger Smith Hotel, and they would let her sit at a table, but not at the counter.

I have a bevy of eighteen year-olds who want to do eighteen-year-old things in the US. In New Zealand, they can go into a bar from eighteen and drink. Whether that's a sensible law or not, my kids are stunned that they have to curtail this stuff when we're on holiday.

Will the only concerts they see be in stadiums, or can they get into some clubs and not others?

We'll be in LA, SF, Vegas, NYC.

What can they do, and what can't they do? What can they do if we accompany them?

Regards

Bradford
