A popular New York City bar may lose its license to sell alcohol after falling victim to a cunning police sting Thursday night.

Amsterdam Avenue’s 1020 will be fined $1,500 for serving alcohol to a 19-year-old undercover police recruit.

Gene Steinhart, co-owner of 1020, said that he reminded the bartender to card those who appeared underage as usual just 20 minutes before the incident.

The recruit, however, appeared to be far older than the legal drinking age.

The man was 6’6″, had a beard, and looked like he was 30, according to management.

Steinhart believes the sting was influenced by a Columbia University opinion column published on Monday entitled “Why we go to 1020.” The bar is apparently known to be easy get into for underage students.

“For 18 years of business, we’ve scrutinized these IDs,” Steinhart said. “We try very hard to make sure that everyone who comes through that door is proofed.”

We don’t want to know what’s going to happen to the author of that column for getting the freshmen’s favorite bar shut down.
