H-Wood Hotspot Mood Busted for Underage Patrons

12/8/2006 4:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Note to Lindsay Lohan and other underage celebs: Don't go to Mood to get your (illegal) drink on.

TMZ has learned that Mood, the Hollywood club where TMZ spotted 18-year-old Jesse McCartney in violation of drinking-age laws earlier this year, was cited for allowing two under-21-year-olds to enter the premises "without lawful business." Law enforcement sources tell us that the pair, who were not named, used fake IDs to enter the club on April 6th, whereupon undercover agents for the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control were there and caught them.

Jesse McCartneyThe two people under 21 were cited for "being minors in a public place." The hearing on the alleged violation was completed last month, and the ABC is recommending a 15-day suspension of their liquor license, a decision that will be made by an administrative law judge. Mood owner David Judaken tells TMZ that he is "cooperating" with the ABC and its proceedings.

Back in February, TMZ shot video of then-19-year-old Mary-Kate Olsen and then-19 Lindsay Lohan, among others, entering Mood. As of last year, Mood had never been cited even though the City of Los Angeles had issued 207 citations in 2005. Judaken told TMZ in February, "We are diligent about ID'ing people ... Certain celebrities ultimately enter lots of clubs who are not entitled to enter."

Underage celebs need a slap in the face. Young stars in general need a slap in the face. These young stars think they can do anything. Look at the retard from Prison Break. Most of them will be complete nobodies in 5 years. They are a dime a dozen and I can't wait to see them on Celebrity Fit Club!!! Jesse McCartney, hopefully you like Danny Bonaduce cause you'll be getting drunk with him at a filthy strip club in 5 years!!!

By the way Enough, you are pathetic, who takes the time to right a comment on a site they hate. Get a life!

Too little, too late. Too bad cops just couldn't sit outside & bust these UNDER-AGED celebs as they walk out the door as they climb into their fancy cars. I'd almost bet that with all the fender-benders LL has had, in some of those she was probably intoxicated! Hey, she claims to be in AA now & getting help from Al Gore & the Clintons! Whatever...she can't act her way out of wet paperbag.

In other words, 'everyone does it, why shouldn't we?'

I'm happy it finally happened. More of these Hollywood clubs need to get smacked for allowing underage drinking.
It won't stop kids from drinking, but it will at least limited the places they can drink.
If Hyde truly does have a "No one under 21" limit, they should automatically boot Lohan and any other starlet out as soon as they walk through the back door.
And if they're getting past the guy at the front door, than he needs to be fired.

Post #2, kathryn: Couldn't agree with you more, Hyde is the worst repeat + consistent violator of ANY club in L.A.! How many times has Lohan been seen going in and out of that place plastered out of her mind and then driving away smashed in full view of photogs, management + patrons? The A.B.C. needs, not to simply suspend their liquor license, but to shut that public menace down permanently before someone actually ends up getting killed by one of of those totally irresponsible juvenile celebrities who frequent that overrated joint! Better yet, that place is so small inside that I doubt they are even following city fire code regulations that limits maximum occupancy if they are allowing minors inside. It looks like it's time to call the Fire Marshal (every night) on a regular basis so that they will raid the place and fine Hyde for their obvious violations. Maybe this will get the management's attention so they will start to clean up their act which might just put and end to the underage drinking problem proliferating over there.
