Brooklyn Bar Makes Drinking Age 25 Because Young People Are Too Loud and Sloppy

Only 21-year-olds do things like this.

If you plan on drinking at Phil’s Crummy Corner in Brooklyn this weekend, you’ll need to be 25 or older. Basically, the bar’s usual patrons are apparently drunken revelers of the worst degree, as they disturb nearby residents with their late-night howling and hooting and carrying on. And so, to pacify neighbors, the bar has instated a new policy that after 10 p.m. on weekends, no one under 25 will be served alcohol. And there, problem solved.

The bar’s manager, Isabel Santiago, told DNAinfo that the primary concern here is neighbors’ “quality of life” and that the bar is working to become more of a “quiet family place.” But it seems that may be tough, as apparently Phil’s has a party-hardy reputation.

“You will be shocked about the number of conversations you can hear from my bed,” one resident said at a local meeting about the problematic venue. “They’re animals. Friday and Saturday night, it’s like animal town.”

It’s great that the bar is taking action and trying to be a good neighbor and everything, but like, have they ever met any 26-year-olds? Talk about animals.
