Brooklyn Now Has A Bar That Won’t Serve Booze To Anyone Under 25

Supposedly, the idea here is to placate angry neighbors, but Phil’s Crummy Corner (where just last April someone was arrested with a full 18 bags of marijuana) may be onto something bigger here.

“You will be shocked about the number of conversations you can hear from my bed,” a neighbor of the Columbia Street Waterfront District bar told DNAinfo, echoing what seems to be a community-wide frustration with PCC’s noise level on weekends. “They’re animals. Friday and Saturday night, it’s like animal town.” But then, couldn’t most New York neighborhoods on Friday and Saturday nights be described as such? Would it be so bad if everyone followed this place’s lead, and stopped serving booze to anyone under 25 after 10pm, other than the most trusted of regulars?

Economically speaking, I guess it could be, but otherwise, not seeing a whole lot to oppose here. And if we can raise the smoking age to 21, we can do anything.
