According to Zimbabwean law, underage individuals are not allowed to enter or consume alcohol in bars, nightclubs, or any other licensed premises that serve alcohol. The legal drinking age in Zimbabwe is 18 years old, and anyone found serving alcohol or allowing underage individuals to consume it can be prosecuted and fined. The law is in place to protect minors from the harmful effects of alcohol and to promote responsible drinking among the general public. It is the responsibility of the bar owners and staff to ensure that they do not serve alcohol to underage individuals and to comply with the law. 

While some underage individuals may lie about their age and may have developed physical features that make them appear older than they actually are, it is still the responsibility of bar owners and staff to ensure that they do not serve alcohol to underage individuals.
