A statewide smoking ban in tn starting July 1, 2007 will affect all enclosed public areas, which means restaurants will no longer allow people to smoke inside. Some of the exceptions are:
- Private Clubs
- Bars that only allow 21 and over at all times
- Accomodations (there will still be smoking rooms that you can stay in)
- Tobacco stores
- Businesses with less than 3 employees
Another exception is possibly any open-aired patios at restaurants. If you’re a smoker and plan on visiting Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, or any other city in Tennessee then you may want to find restaurants with outdoor seating. If it’s winter time…well, I guess you have to figure out how bad you need a puff!
