    Most bars in America will let you use a photo id card as long as it is issued from the government. So if your ID card is official and states your date of birth I would say it should work. Otherwise, most places will accept a passport as well. cheers!

    Alot of places I’ve been to in North America will only accept passports as valid ID for international people as they dont know what international ID’s or drivers licences look like. I have forgotten to take my passport out some nights and had been denied entry into bars & clubs. Take your passport but keep it safe.

    Bring your passport. I live in the US and I have heard of many people getting turned away from bars with foreign driver’s licenses in my city, at least.
