    Can a minor go into a bar with a parent?

    18-year-old minor going to hear a band with his parent.

    Situation A) they have the same last name.

    Situation B) they don't have the same last name.

    Bar's discretion.

    No, they can't if the establishment is classified as a bar. This only works with ordering a drink for a minor at an eatery.

    I have done this numerous times at many clubs. Never been turned down.

    1) call ahead and ask to speak to the manager. Tell them what you want to do. Get his name and ask if he is going to be there.
    2) get there early before it gets too crowded and ask to speak to the manager. Introduce yourself and the kid to make sure he knows who the kid is.
    3) also a good idea to talk to the head bartender/bar manager and tip them.

    Some will have a rule that the minor can only drink bottled water...nothing from a cup, especially if said minor is close to drinking age.

    As someone pointed out, it's at the discretion of the bar.

    While there is law that says a bar MAY serve a minor in the presence of their legal guardian, there is no law that says the bar HAS to serve them.

    The ones that do serve it, are required to take all drinks off of the table at any point that the guardian is away from the table (ie bathroom). For this reason, the vast majority of bars have quit doing it at all.

    So a parent can legally serve their minor child alcohol at home? I presume they can't serve other minors, though? Always wondered about those "safe drinking" parties.

    The kids whose parents let us drink at their houses were really, really popular.

    Legally yes you can, however if he has a different last name they might make you show proof. But just because its legal for bars to serve/let him in doesn't mean the bars will. They can refuse service to anyone.

    Yes, parents/guardians can serve their own child alcohol at home, but it is illegal for them to serve other minors.

    Yes

    I have much experience with this. Bars can, but don't have to, let you in with your minor child and can, but don't have to, let you serve your child booze in their bar. It depends on the server and management. I've been to some places that wouldn't even allow a minor to enter. I've been to some that would serve my minor son as long as we both showed our ID's. I've had some not serve my son even though we showed our ID's. Totally up to the bar.
