Many of the popular bars in Tuscaloosa are not true bars, but are instead restaurants that serve more alcohol and less food as the night goes on. Since they are not classified as bars, people under 21 may be allowed in, though they typically will be turned away after 10:00pm (when it becomes too crowded for the staff to keep track of who is underage). They may also ask people under 21 who are already present to leave at 10:00.


Stay safe

The Tuscaloosa Metro is relatively safe. The southern, as well as eastern/Alberta City areas of Tuscaloosa are some of the most crime ridden.
