26 Apr Clubs In NYC 21 And Over

Just how old do you have to be to enter a nightclub in NYC?  That is a question that is asked by many visitors to New York City.  NYC is famous for a lively nightlife and visitors want to see and be seen at the best clubs and lounges that NYC has to offer.

In NYC, a person under 21 is prohibited from purchasing alcohol or possessing alcohol with the intent to consume, unless the alcohol was given to that person by their parent or legal guardian. In simpler terms, you must be 21+ to enter a club or lounge and drink alcohol in NYC.

The exception is any location that has a restaurant on the premises.  If food is served, anyone under 21 years old can be allowed to enter but, they cannot purchase any alcohol.  Some clubs and lounges allow under 21 year old patrons to enter earlier in the day to eat, dance, or attend an event, but not later at night.  Here are 3 clubs in NYC that you must be 21 and over:

Cellar Bar – Cellar Bar NYC is decorated with white-tiled, vaulted ceilings and tapioca loveseats. Fashionable couples and sly singles go to be discreetly naughty and listen to DJs spinning a mix of sounds and sample the special, innovative drinks.
