How to get into Bars and Clubs Underage! (without spending money on a fake ID)

Updated on June 20, 2009
Hopefully if you DO buy a classic fake ID, its better then this! :)
Hopefully if you DO buy a classic fake ID, its better then this! :)

Back From College

You’re out of college for the summer and “knowing brothers in the frat” or being friends with the bouncer isn’t going to get you into bars in the city like it does back on campus. You need something that works and you need something quick. Its time for a fake ID, but like sex, there’s not only one way to get the deed done. So before you run off to the sketchiest area of the city asking “you got fake id?” like a Chinese tourist, lets look at a couple of other ID options you can use to get you into the hottest bars and clubs back home to keep you busy till school starts again.

Scan of Passport

This one works best in busy cities, but is devilishly effective and almost cost free. Make a color scan of your passport; get your local Photoshop nerd to edit the birthday - then print! Just carry this copy in your wallet and get ready to put on your best fake accent as you explain “The hotel told me to keep my passport in the Hotel, so I only have a copy of it”. Works well, and the best part is, its bouncer proof. Oh no, you encountered a bouncer who took the paper away, or even worse, shredded it in front of you? BOO-HOO. Stop home and click print!

Siblings ID or Look-alike ID

If you have a sibling who looks like you and is of similar age, you basically have the path paved for victory. No one can stop you, and to put your ID into overdrive, get your siblings old credit card or debit card to guarantee legitimacy. This 1, 2 punch combination basically makes you 21. If you don’t have any siblings (you know of) but have a friend who looks like you, just double check and remember your name and birthday of him. If you can’t remember your ID name and Birthdate, then you probably shouldn’t be drinking to begin with.


The hardest but most rewarding. Ironically this method works best only in super sketchy low budget places (your local Chinatown) or super high end “we don’t need to card” restaurants and bars (except then your paying out the ass). The best way to role with no ID is to sneak into the bar or club, pretend you were inside already or the infamous “I forgot my sweatshirt/wallet/keys/girlfriend” inside. Worst they can say is no! You can also join in with the “just smoking a cig” club outside and walk back in with them, hoping to blend into the crowd. Even if you don’t get into any clubs I can assure you, you and the boys will have stories to talk about for days afterwards.

Hopefully with these tips, you should be getting into bars and clubs in your area while saving both $$ and time. Watch out though, you can get thrown out of the bar just as easily as getting in, so don't go screaming BEERPONG as soon as you run through the door. More College related articles to come!

      I'm going to Europe next year with a group of friends that are 18 and over but... I'll only be 15! So of course they're going to go to heaps of clubs pubs and wine tours, will a proof of age card allow me to do these things with them?

      In my quest to find a good fake id to get into nightclubs I came across Interesting website all about buying ids online. The owner even posts his fakes that he purchased from an online fake id maker to show the great replica work of some sites. Even a page showing famous entertainers fake ids. Seems even movie stars need a good fake to buy a beer.

      Go to smoke area "smoke" make conversation with fellow "adults" be friends with them (don't cling) walk in with him/her say that you want to buy them a drink order a large pitcher of beer and 2 cups. DO NOT ORDER BUSCH! And if you can play pool, more power to you.

      If he looks young, then he'll have trouble getting into clubs in England. The thing that I normally do (as I'm not 18 til March but wanna go out for my other friends birthdays) is use someone elses ID. If you take two forms of your own ID and walk in seperately you may be okay. We used to do it all the time and most bouncers only look at the DOB not the picture and they certainly don't remember who they've already let in. Hope this helps :) x

      Hey Josh,

      I grew up in Europe, and lived there for 7 years. Most countries the drinking age for beer and wine is 16 years old. If you go to bars, the majority of them will let it slide, as long as its not a super fancy/high security type situation. The ID situation is a lot more relaxed. I would use Scan of Passport method above, and say that you left your Passport in the Hotel, because you didn't want it stolen/lost as you are traveling all over Europe.

      Hey There, To update it this post a bit there is a new IPhone app that I have used called ID! This allows you to take pictures of your passport or import from camera roll. Might work better and no printing required here is the link to it.

      Good Luck!

      if only the drinking age were lowered, then we wouldn't have to desperately sneak around

      This is really funny. Cool profile pic too. These are all good ways to sneak into a bar. If I was bartending I would catch you though, but effective ways none the less
