Sounds like a good policy to us:
Though Williamsburg beer halls welcome kids — and parents in need of a drink after a hard day of calming tantrums and navigating city streets with strollers — they’re setting strict curfews on the way-underage set. The no-kids-after-8 p.m. policies are designed to help keep evening drinking sane for adults who don’t want to feel they’re imbibing in a preschool.
“Radegast and Spritzenhaus have curfews for the babies,” said neighborhood mom Courtney Brett. “It’s great for all of us, because what baby is going to stay up past 8 p.m.?” [...]
Yael Eisele, who often takes her 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter to Spritzenhaus on afternoons because “it’s pretty empty, there are big benches and there are always kids there,” said she’d faced resistance from some single bar-goers who claimed her kids were out of place.
“Someone at Spritzenhaus once said to me, ‘I don’t drink my beer in the playground,’” recalled Eisele.
“People go out and relax, and I get it, not everybody wants to have kids around, especially if [the kids] are going crazy.”
