Pssssst, come closer. Do you like cigarettes… or cigars? Are you tired of having to go outside in the cold to smoke? I’ve got a place for you. Follow me to the Tina Bar, a little refuge for hedonists.
This place with its stylish red interior reminds of a speakeasy, or at least what I imagine a speakeasy was like. You have to know it to find it and you’re allowed to smoke inside – something that’s very rare around here after a legal ban. They serve all the classic cocktails, and they do them well (try the Moscow Mule).
It is associated with the Brasserie Louis, a restaurant, which you can find downstairs. So food is never far away in case you’re hungry.
Disclaimer: I’m not trying to advertise for smoking. I myself have kicked the habit. Still it makes me happy that such a place exists in my city and I gladly join my friends for drinks here. To alter a famous quote a bit: I might no longer endanger my own health by smoking but I will defend your right to do it to yourself.
