The Alley Bar
A year or two ago the Lincoln City Council outlawed smoking in
public establishments - including bars. Many bar owners figured
that if the smokers could not light up at their establishments they
would go out of business. However, owners (and their architects)
have been very creative in designing outdoor smoking areas that meet
the law as regards to percentage of open exterior wall, air exchanges, etc.
One enterprising bar owner even provided a bus complete with tables
and chairs in the parking lot to accomodate the smokers. The Alley has
a very nice oudoor deck/verandah that provides a nice ambient area for
their patrons - smokers and non-smokers.
