With all the hustle and bustle of a typical Friday or Saturday night in downtown Windsor, raising the legal drinking age can mean less noise. The legal age is the age at which you are allowed to engage in a certain activity or take on a certain responsibility. It is independent of the age of majority. For example, the legal age to be licensed in Ontario is 16, while you must be 19 to buy alcohol or cannabis.

See Ontario Regulation 374/10, Supervised Alternative Learning and Other School Attendance Excuses.

A report recommending that Ontario raise the drinking age from 19 to 21 received a dismissive boost from a group of friends from Michigan who had come to Windsor on Saturday to celebrate two of them who will turn 19. Suppose you lose at the casino on the way home, they like to hear that. But Windsorite`s Emily D`Aloisio, 22, and her 19-year-old sister Ellen, who went to a downtown bar Saturday night, contradict Luttenegger`s logic. “I just feel more comfortable serving a slightly older crowd,” Anderson said, adding that most fights or other issues that happen at the bar involve diners as young as 19 or 20. “You feel more comfortable when there`s a little more maturity. These two years definitely make a difference. A few years ago, that was still the case, according to a colleague from Windsor. This was quite common years ago. Striptease bars were also better across the border. When I was 19/20 years old, I personally went to Canada all the time to drink, as did many of my peers.

I know there were bars in Detroit where we could still go, but going to Canada was quite an event and we were free to go up and down Oullette and go to Caesars. I don`t know if people are still doing it, but almost 10 years ago, I know a lot of people were doing it.

January and late August You must be at least 19 years old to enter Caesar`s Windsor with acceptable identification. If you appear to be 30 years of age or younger, you will be asked for a primary ID.

Security personnel, regardless of age, may request secondary identification at any time, which must be presented prior to entry. “I just feel more comfortable serving a slightly older crowd,” Anderson said, adding that most fights or other issues that happen at the bar involve patrons as young as 19 or 20. If you want to hang out with friends at the bar and you`re only 20 years old, take a tour of Windsor!

Border guards would even give you directions to nearby bars and car parks. “I find it really annoying when you walk into a bar and maybe someone who just graduated from high school could be there,” Luttenegger said.
