As we wrap up the year, we are happy that millions of people can celebrate the New Year in smokefree environments—from Indianapolis to New Orleans. But for residents in many communities, secondhand smoke is still a major health hazard for a night out or for live music. Many performers we’ve talked to say that smokefree venues help them perform at the top of their game. Read testimonials from musicians and more at our Smokefree Music Cities Project.
Here are just some of the places where bars and other nightlife venues are not yet smokefree by law:
- Las Vegas, NV
- Atlanta,GA Atlanta is going smokefree Jan 2, 2020!
- Memphis, TN
- Tulsa, OK
