Ohio bar sparks controversy with new policy banning patrons under 30 after reported violence: ‘No exceptions’

An Ohio bar’s new policy banning customers under 30 years old on weekends has sparked a heated debate on the business’s social media account.

“Starting this weekend! 30 & up on Friday and Saturday nights. Cover charge starts at 10PM, and the doors close at 1:15 A.M. No exceptions!” Donerick’s Pub in Groveport announced May 1 on its Facebook page. 

The business owner did not explain what the reason for the change was. However, in replies under the post, the bar said the new policy was to enforce safety after experiencing a surge in customers on weekends.

“Keeping our customers safe is our top priority!” it added.
