In 2009, a proposal was made by Minneapolis City Councilwoman Lisa Goodman to ban Minneapolis bars and clubs from allowing those under the age of 21 from being allowed inside of the bars for fear of underage drinking, according to the Minneapolis' Twin Cities “Daily Planet” newspaper. While many of the clubs allotted wrist bands and other ways of determining who was allowed to drink and who wasn't, underage club goers still found ways to break the rules. The ban has not come to fruition, so there are still clubs that do allow underage persons to have a fun nightlife.
Every Tuesday night at Myth is "Club Nitro," which is for anyone ages 16 and older. The club is modern and has a trendy Hollywood nightclub feel to it. Non-alcoholic drinks are available. The lounge area is perfect for hanging out and drinking, while the dance floor area is where you can get your groove on. The club closes at midnight for the underage day.
