Kelly's Bar & Lounge 

Dining Description:  CP REVIEW: The vintage aesthetic isn't retro at this longtime neighborhood hangout; it's the real thing. And the original 1940s fare has been updated with taste and style: Burgers and fries share space with Asian potstickers and satay. The mini mac & cheese is a classic. [July 2007]

What kind of bar makes you feel like you're underage when you aren't and have a 100% valid driver's license to prove it?

Our server refused to accept my Minnesota driver's license. I suggested they scan it, but the server said they didn't have one, which I later found out to be false. The server also refused to acknowledge that my other forms of ID (credit card, school ID, etc) matched my driver's license. It seemed as though the server was just set on not serving my party and I.

Minnesota licenses are made out of a rubber-like compound, which may arouse some suspicion, but seriously at least try to verify my ID in some objective manner. He also stated that because my party had licenses from different states (we are students), "clearly" that meant all of our IDs were fake.

My experience at Kelly's was quite upsetting.

AVOID if you have an out-of-state or international ID--they only trust Pennsylvania driver's licenses!
