The Cigar-Smoker's Dilemma
People often come in, excited to get a drink and....puff on a cigar.
Unfortunately, every time, we have to burst their bubble and tell them that they are not allowed to smoke indoors.
When the Velvet Lounge first opened, smoking indoors was allowed; however, due to Health Department regulations, that is no longer true. We are working on a few options that would bring the smoking back indoors, but in the meantime, smoking is only allowed in the outdoor lounge area.
We have a heat lamp installed that does a surprisingly good job of keeping everyone toasty, so the whole experience is quite pleasant (as well it should be! We wouldn't let it be any other way!)
We will keep working to bring the smoking back, so check back for more information on any developments!
