and do what? the problem isn't the bar, it's the young kids with high testosterone. the kids end up near the bars geared towards the "kids" bars like geisha house. when you have groups of young adults you are bound to have altercations. other than closing the bars earlier there isn't much you can do IMHO. If you look at the problems in the keeaumoku area a lot of it can be attributed to the increase in bars that caters to the young crowd. a number of bars were there for decades without the stabbings and violence, a lot of the problems started in the past few years when they created new bars catering to the young crowd.

A bar is supposed to be a place for socializing, not fighting, especially with knives or other weapons. Guess, the alcohol tends influence the male libido falsely and turns the individual into a gladiator of yore.
