St. Charles passes tougher bar law
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- Bars in the St. Louis suburb of St. Charles now face stricter regulations.
The city council on Tuesday approved an ordinance aimed at cutting down on binge drinking at bars. The law prohibits drinking establishments from selling alcohol below cost. It also prohibits dancing on tables. And, bars must serve food.
City leaders believe the ordinance will eliminate some of the rowdiness on historic North Main Street, where many bars are popular hangouts for young people.
While the new law targets bars on North Main, it applies to all taverns in the city.
