Espacio sin humo: Prohibido fumar?

Smoke-free area: Smoking Prohibited

(Is that a contented or a skeptical smirk?)

This entry is an update on the smoking ban, which I mentioned briefly in November. In short, the ban works. The were grumbles and complaints, but smokers really do move their butts to the street to light up. ┬áSure, you have to swim through a smoky haze to enter an establishment, but at least you’re not drowning in the stuff during a meal or function. I’ll be curious to hear if the ban actually dissuades people from smoking all together…

“CUSSING ALLOWED IN THIS BAR….

But smokers go to the street…That’s the way it is!”

  1. i was wary of the smoking ban back in january – would it detract from madrid’s characteristic gritty night fever? a couple months later, i’d say the answer is not in any way whatsoever. this from a nonsmoker, however.

    perhaps the only downside is that its now much more noticeable when some establishments smell a little… stale.
