The 15-strong group, a mixture of middle-aged women and their daughters, had enjoyed a meal together before wandering over to the Crown Bar in Leeds.
As soon as they reached the doorway they were told they could only go inside if they were 35 or younger.
To add insult to injury, one member of the door staff allegedly told them: "Daughters can come in, but not the Scrotum Faces!"
Carol Worthwick, 62, a civil servant, whose group included teachers, bankers and a police officer, said today: "When they asked us our ages we thought they were joking and so, smiling, we made to go in.
"But then we realised that, far from joking, they were in deadly earnest and told the mums in the group that we were too old to come in."
One of the teachers added, "They just stood there shoulder to shoulder and let us stand out in the cold. They actually thought it was funny. I mean, where's that WalMart crowd in American when you really need them?"
