11:50 AM PT: We're told the California Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control has just opened an investigation into The Sayers Club over the Ludwig photos. A rep for the ABC tells TMZ, "We're looking into it."

"Hunger Games" star Alexander Ludwig blew off some steam Tuesday night by kicking back at The Sayers Club in Hollywood -- problem is, he's 19 and the club cannot legally allow anyone in who is under 21.

The pic on the left shows Alexander at an event earlier in the evening.  Then we got more pics -- shot at around 11:45 PM -- showing Alexander, wearing the same leather jacket and skinny jeans -- covering his face leaving Sayers.

The California Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control tells TMZ ... Sayers has a Type 48 license, meaning only patrons 21 and over can enter. 

Robbie McKay, Director of Communications for Sayers, tells TMZ when security spotted Ludwig inside the club he was asked to leave.

BTW, Alexander is from Canada, where you can go to bars when you're 18 or 19, depending on the province.  Welcome to America, Alex!

I really don't think it's that big of a deal. He didn't drive, there's nothing that says he was ACTUALLY drunk, and he wasn't causing trouble. Whatever. They should be more concerned about how he got into the club in the first place.

this is surprising that it made news. hohan was already clubbing it when she was 17-18.
out in l.a. if you are famous enough, you can get in those places and get served- no problem.
we are talking l.a. here people- famous can get you out of nearly anything.

This isn't new news: In '98 or '99 I saw Leann Rimes at Miyagi's on Sunset. She turned 21 in 2003!!!!!! If there was a crackdown on this, all the exclusive hollywood bars would be shut down in one fell swoop.

Leave the guy alone. Please. Dont pretend like any of you didnt drink underage at an establishment that serves alcohol at some point. You either knew someone, or they just let you in. Its a big deal now because the guy is famous. Come on, the guy even had a chaperone!

Lindsay Lohan thanks you.

I have not seen to many underage clubbing stories in the last few years. Occasionally Miley goes out, but since Lindsay, Hilary Duff, Olsen Twins, Hayden Panittere and a few other non-entities turned 21, not much on this issue.

Nothing was done by the authorities a few years ago about Lohan, etc. and nothing will be done here. However, unlike Lohan, this C-D Lister is probably getting scolded by mommy, daddy and his Manager.

Usually one earful of tough love is enough to stop the stupidity. Lohan starred in a few movies that grossed $450M. This pimple-faced teenager is just part of the supporting cast.

And nobody does anything about Miley Cyrus partying in the clubs? If I'm correct, she's underage as well, she'll be 20 this year, they're the same age in fact. Come on. I understand they shouldn't be given special treatment because they're celebrities, laws are laws, but the truth is that it happens!

No different than when he was partying at Beachers Madhouse a couple of weeks ago. We tried to go out for a fun night at the club and it was overrun by Alex and his underage bevy of girls. I was looking for more of a grownup scene!

Yes, drinking age in Canada is 19....we have no probe with it here...kids relieve it is too expensive to go out to party. We CAN live simple within our means.
