Shawn Mendes Gets Rejected from Dublin Bar and Goes to McDonald's Instead

Sorry, Shawn Mendes -- no Guinness for you.

The 20-year-old singer was turned away from a bar in Dublin, Ireland earlier this week, even though the legal drinking age there is 18.

In a fan-captured video of the incident,one of the bouncers at Bruxelles [brew-ZELLE] pub explains to a dejected Shawn that many bar managers have their own age restrictions after certain hours.

“OK, thank you. Wow,” Shawn said before walking away. “All right, bye. I tried.”

Shawn, who had just finished a concert at Dublin’s 3Arena, then did the next best thing: He went to McDonald’s. He reportedly ordered a Happy Meal and posed for a bunch of selfies with fans there just after 3 a.m.

The Canadian singer told last year that he typically only drinks in his home country.

“I just don’t drink in America. I get it all out when I go home,” he said. “I don’t find it frustrating because I care about alcohol. I care about time with friends in bars.”

He added, “I’m being denied a social experience, not an alcoholic beverage. I wish I was allowed to just go in the bar and drink a pop, because then I would at least be there with everyone and I wouldn’t have to be in my hotel while everyone else is at the bar.”

Shawn officially turns 21 in August.

The pop singer is coming to town July 25th. Sign up here for your chance to win tickets!
