Bar Rules in New York You Must Know

Well, it’s a bit unfair if you compare the bars of New York to that of any other place in the world. And I say this with so much of confidence because no bar, and let me emphasize, no bar in New York knows the meaning of the word drab. Head to any bar and you are just going to have a whale of a time. Music, appetizers and some of the finest beverages up for grabs is just what you need to get life rolling zippy. But, as chill as the atmosphere may be at any bar in New York, there are some bar rules which exist. And, I guess, it won’t cost you a dime to know them. It’s good to know the rules and flaunt your knowledge at times while you sit down with your friends chugging down beer. So, before you hop-on a last minute flight to New York City, glance through the article to know some of the bar rules.       

Take home bottled and canned beer

Yes, you can take that after party to your house by grabbing bottled and canned beer right from the bar. Isn’t it cool? But then only beer is what you can take away from the bar. And that too if they are sealed. Any other alcohol is not up for sale. It may not please you but then beer is just perfect for an after party. So, sneak out that smile, mate!

Beer taps got to be labelled

Those beer taps at the bar are just so cool. I wish, I had some at home too. But, then going to a bar is hip any day. Thus, a trivia for you to know. The beer taps need to be labelled with the name of the beer and its brewery. This helps the consumer know if the beer being served is the one they asked for. If taps are not marked, then the bar can get in to some real trouble when an inspection takes place. Yes, it’s a real deal in New York. So, next time when you book airplane tickets to any of the cities in New York, make sure you take a note of it while visiting a bar.

Beer bar or brewery? The choice is yours

Ok, this doesn’t concern you if you’re just visiting a bar, but what’s the harm in knowing things, right?! When it comes to distribution channels, New York follows the three-tier system. And as per that rule, you cannot be both— a bar and a brewery owner— at the same time. You can either choose to open a beer bar or you can opt for having a brewery. The choice can be real tough, given that you are in the position to own both. But, you can only have one. So, make a wise decision there. Although, there are a few exceptions to the rule.

Drinking in public is a big NO

If you’re in New York City, and the hip ethos and the easy breezy attitude of the city takes over you, don’t go overboard and think of checking off drinking in public from the list of things to do in New York City. Because, that’d be a grave mistake. Steer clear of doing such gimmicks if you do not want to get on the wrong side of the law. Sip those chilled beer while sitting at the comfort of your home/hotel, a restaurant or while grooving at the bar.

Now that you know the teeny-tiny bits about the bar rules that envelop the state of New York, make sure to learn some more on your next trip. Because, rules are endless.
