In a pub/bar people come together to drink and socialise. For many visitors the experience wouldn’t be complete without a cigarette. Sending the visitor outside is not an option. It is not only unfriendly towards the customer but also gives them the opportunity to head over to a competitor’s establishment. In recent years, laws regulating the hospitality industry have become stricter, and smoking in a café is now only permitted in a designated, separate smoking room. However, no drinks may be served in this room. If a café owner opts for a smoking room, it is important to look carefully at the available space as well as the overall monitoring and safety. A smoking room that can be monitored completely (through a camera or windows, for example) is preferable for safety reasons. Attention must be paid to the interests of the non-smoker too. He or she may not experience any inconvenience from tobacco smoke or odour hanging in the air of the smoking room that could ‘leak’ out. Therefore it must be sealed effectively and be equipped with adequate smoke extraction.
