Cigar bars were once one of the most popular types of bars. People would come to hang out and share a relaxing smoke with people they called friends. However as time has passed people have turned against smokers in a number of areas. Today those who run such an establishment have a difficult situation in front of them. They could possibly even lose their entire business one day without proper care. We’ll give you some ideas on how to improve all of this as well.
So what is this landmark change that makes it practically impossible to run a bar? You can only smoke outdoors for a bar. When the weather hits record lows this becomes practically impossible to relax in. This is of course not the same in every part of the country but in many areas of the north this is true and it’s not for everyone. But for those who have run successful businesses before it is a landmark decision.
Fortunately outdoor furniture and some recent innovations give you a new option on how to handle all of this. Due to the advanced nature of seating, tents and even outdoor heating you can create a comfortable environment for your customers while still having an open-air section. Having an overhang or other area to enjoy the cigars in is now absolutely vital so you should look into this if you are not ready.
When selecting Outdoor Furniture you should make sure that it is highly durable. It also should be able to stand up to a few cinders here and there. That’s not so hard to do fortunately because you can find pieces of a high quality and resilience at an affordable price all the time pretty much. Just be wary of getting bargain items that costs you very little, which could quite literally go up in smoke if your customers are not careful.
So what happens if you break these laws? You could lose your liquor license and also be fined significantly for breaking these laws. Not everyone is happy about this turn of events but the law has spoken. Some will no doubt attempt to skirt these laws by keeping the smoke on the down low, so to speak. Whether their efforts will work is something for them to find out. Saving money isn’t always worth the full cost.
Due to the fact that a lot of public opinion has turned against smokers these changes seem to be inevitable. No one wants to reverse them so far who has enough clout to do so. Until someone with some real power decides this needs to be changed it will stay like this for some time.
Giving up on your bar is probably not an option for many of you. If you want to get into this you should make sure you understand how difficult it will be for all of this to work out. It can cost you quite a bit of additional money when you do this but it’s much better than the alternative of closing down.
