Interesting question. I was 6'6" at 17 and never had a problem getting a drink.Ran around with a guy who played sax in the Jimmy Dorsey band. He seemed to know every bartender in Manhattan including the Copa, the Latin Quarter etc.
After the War several of us hit a new bar and the bartender refused to serve one of us.Eddie was short and had a baby face. I explained to him Eddie had been in the Marines,was at Iwo,had aship blown out from under neath him. We were served.
