Would more people come here if the smoking area was enlarged?
Asked at Red Lyon Tavern, 944 Mass. on October 23, 2004
“I think more people would come. Smokers and nonsmokers want to hang out in the same social areas.”
“If they make it a patio area with seating, then yes, it would bring in more business. It needs to be a nice area, though, not just an extension of the sidewalk.”
“Absolutely. I think that they should let them make it bigger. It’s more comfortable if you can smoke and drink at the same time.”
“Yes. A lot of people have changed what bar they go to because of the ban. Beer and cigarettes go hand in hand.”
