Best Place to Smoke in Public 

The Pub

In California, smokers are practically second-class citizens, vilified in the media, scorned in public, and outlawed almost anywhere with four walls and a roof. The last vestige for the renegade smoker is your friendly neighborhood tobacconist. The Pub takes that basic concept and trumps it by offering draft beer, coffee, and espresso drinks and the classy atmosphere of a British pub on a Sunday afternoon. The Pub is the sort of place that Sherlock Holmes might retire to after a hard day's sleuthing. Here he could engage in civilized conversation with distinguished gentlemen. They would sit around the fireplace taking pulls from their respective pipes, sipping ale or strong coffee. They would twirl their moustaches and cough as they tried to interject into the dialogue. The dogs (St. Bernards and Great Danes) would snooze on the deck in the shade of a wooden picnic table. Wooden floors and worn furniture, the smell of hops and fine tobaccos soaked into the wood. Smoking out on the back patio or the front deck. This place smells like your grandpa's study, and it's probably more fun, too.
