WE ARE A 21 AND OVER ONLY ESTABLISHMENT
We restrict access to legends to patrons 21-and-over at all times due to that silly thing called “that’s the law”. This means you cannot bring your kids with you until after they turn twenty-one, even if they are already drinking all your booze at home.
All patrons are required to present proper identification. If there is no security personnel at the entrance, and you seat yourself, your bartender or server will check your ID at the table (or bar) – so, please have it available. No ID = No service. So, if you didn’t bring your ID with you, and are denied access at Legends. Sorry, but’s its that thing called “It’s the law again” and it’s your own damned fault for being a dumb-ass. Who doesn’t carry ID?
When checking identification, Legends will only accept IDs that are acceptable under Tennessee state law. Proper identification means any document issued by a governmental agency containing a description of the person, such person’s photograph, or both, and giving such person’s date of birth and includes, without being limited to, a passport, military identification card, driver’s license, or an identification card authorized.”
PLEASE DO NOT BE OFFENDED when asked for your ID or if you are told your ID is not valid. That is a requirement to work here and if they do not ask or if they let you come into Legends without a proper ID, it will cost them their job. Their livelihood is more important than your beer. Again, you should have had your ducks in a row before coming out to play!
For clarification purposes, the following specific items constitute acceptable forms of identification under Tennessee state law.
Valid driver’s license, instruction permit, or ID card issued by any U.S. state, U.S. territory or the District of Columbia.
Valid Tennessee temporary driver’s license
Valid driver’s license or ID card of any nation
Valid passport of any nation
Valid U.S. armed forces ID card
Valid Merchant Marine/Coast Guard ID card
Valid state-issued concealed carry permit that contains a photograph and DOB of the bearer.
Any identification document that does not meet the requirements for “Acceptable Forms of Identification” noted above will not be acceptable. For clarification purposes, the following specific items also constitute unacceptable forms of identification under Tennessee state law.
Any form of ID that has expired
Photocopied, falsified or otherwise altered ID
Digital images of ID on a camera or cellphone
Library cards, membership cards or credit cards
Student ID cards, foreign or domestic
DUI paperwork or other traffic citations
Notes from your mom
IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE AN IDIOT
Our goal is to foster an atmosphere of fun and mutual respect. We declared Legends an Idiot-Free Zone. Simply stated, it means “you be nice, and we’ll be nice.” Anyone who acts like an entitled jerk will be asked to leave. People who behave badly always seem surprised when we toss their silly asses out the door. Probably because they’re idiots.
Legends allows smoking. However, the smoking of stinky stuff like cigars, pipes, clove cigarettes, and some vapes (the ones that create enough smoke to upset smoky the Bear), are subject to the on-site management’s decision. PS, don’t blow in anyone’s face. And no smoking cigars at the bar (No Exceptions).
RESERVATIONS AND INCOMPLETE PARTIES
Legends is a casual joint, so we seat on a first-come, first-served basis. We ONLY take a FEW reservations and they must be for large special occasion such as Birthdays, Retirements, Reunions, etc. These reservations are at the discretion of the management. What is not acceptable: a party for cousin Ted getting out of prison, you and your sweethearts one-month anniversary (you won’t last two months anyways), or for your boy band reunion.
Also be advised, all reservations must be at or prior to 8pm. After that, it’s open seating. We also do not seat incomplete parties during any peak business period or allow 3 people to sit at a table for 8. Be prepared to share your table and meet some new friends.
We know all your little tricks and lies too, you tricky, lying little bastards, so don’t even try them. Just enjoy a tasty drink from the bar while you wait on your slack-assed friends. When we are not in the middle of a peak period (or about to enter a peak period), this policy should not be an issue, but we will always decide what constitutes a peak period – at our discretion.
NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS
In case you hadn’t noticed, we sell food and drinks at Legends. It’s is not a picnic ground. If you are foolish enough to sit your butt down and whip out a sack lunch, or bring in an outside beverage, it will be confiscated and dumped in the trash. Sorry! Not really…
NO FREE SAMPLES
Food that has been prepared correctly may NOT be returned because you “just don’t like it.” Same goes for mixed drinks. Read the descriptions. Talk to your server. Act like a grown-up. If you order a beer, wine or spirit that you’re not crazy about, that’s a damn shame too. We don’t brew, ferment, distill or bottle any of it. We just sell it. So, when your food or booze order is delivered to you “error-free,” the transaction is officially complete. If you have a particularly delicate palate, or are just a chronic complainer, be prepared to share what you’ve ordered with the less finicky members of your party. You know – the adults.
We’re sorry if you don’t like what we do, or how we do it. Maybe you think our bar is too crowded, or you think the music is too loud, or the foul-mouthed strippers sitting beside you are just too offensive. Hey, on occasion Legends might get a little rowdy. If you insist on having total control over your environment at all times, then maybe you should consider the public library. Nobody likes a whiner. Especially in a bar.
THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC AREA
Our premises and our restrooms are reserved for paying customers only. By making purchases, our patrons are temporarily “renting” the right to enjoy our facilities. These business transactions allow us to pay for a veritable plethora of overhead, including (but not limited to) the cost of licenses and permits, taxes, rent, utilities, insurance, equipment, supplies, maintenance, repairs, food, booze and a very large payroll. We simply can’t afford to allow random people to use our private property as public space. IN other words, you need to purchase something to hang out and watch our TV’s, Bands, Play our Games, and engage in flirting with others.
Keeping Legends operating smoothly for our loyal fans is a full-time, 24/7 kind of commitment. That’s why we will not waste our time dealing with stupidity, idiocy or any other nonsense. It’s time to put on your big-boy or big-girl panties, because Legends is a place for ADULTS.
Don’t barf in here. And don’t make us cut you off. We will if you get sloppy. So do everyone a favor and cut yourself off before you start acting like a damned fool. If you’re going to be drinking, we suggest you designate a driver or use a ride sharing service like Uber or Lyft. Impaired driving is dangerous, and DUI’s suck. Waking up at home is always better than waking up in county jail and seeing yourself looking your best on Scoop Wilson. So, have fun, be safe and be smart. Never drive impaired.
Legends is required to obey a variety of Liquor Laws to maintain our Liquor License in good standing. The livelihood of a whole bunch of really nice people depends on it.
Legends is prohibited by law from selling alcoholic beverages to anyone that is visibly intoxicated. Therefore, we reserve the right to refuse the service of alcohol to anyone, at any time – at our sole discretion. Do everyone a favor and cut yourself off, before you start acting like an idiot.
If our security personnel or manager believes you might be under the influence of alcohol or drugs before you have entered the premises, we reserve the right to refuse admittance – at our sole discretion.
If you walk up to the door with an alcoholic drink in your hand, or the uber drops you off and beer cans fall out when you open the door, you will not be allowed to enter (and yes this happens, so I have to write it). If you sneak out to your car for a drink or smoke and we see or suspect that, we will not allow you to re-enter legends for the night other than to pay your tab. This is for the safety of you and everyone else.
If you sneak any drinks into Legends and you are caught, please do not try to justify it. It’s just wrong and it’s that simple. You will be kicked out and it’s just that simple too.
FINAL CLOSING TIMES
Local government dictates the final closing times that must be adhered to by all Liquor License holders. Additionally, Legends can close earlier, and we do. When we call last call, it’s last call. From that point, you will have 30 minutes to finish that last drink or whatever you have in your hand and call it a night. That means customers must be off our premises after that 30 mins. You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.
