Any clubs / pubs / bars that are non smoking around Patong??

Hi Guys!

Ive visited once before, and wanted to know, are there any bars etc that are specifically non-smoking?

Im a severe asthmatic and in certain venues (The White Room, Scruffy Murphys etc) the smoking + aircon + everything else made me quite sick, and was unable to even experience a night out on Bangla Road.

Thankyou in advance everyone :")

None that I know of, you may need to stick to open air bars and try and avoid smokers around.

That's a big ask in Asia, even in restaurants people smoke. I agree with Brio2, stick to the open air bars where you can. We're in Bali at the moment and it's even worse here than Thailand.

Open air restaurant/bar will serve your purpose.

ooh not nice sport, smoking is everywhere in thailand & asia.

with your problem about all you can do is ask if a restaurant/bar can seat you where no smokers sit, but then again if they have customers who smoke could be bad for their business to ask them to stop smoking.

I cannot stand the smell of smoke & i look around first before going in any where to eat.bars i don't use so no problems there,but just walking past a bar it stinks.

I cannot think of anything that might help you.

Thanks for all your replies everyone. Bit disappointing though that there's not even one bar that is designated to be non smoking, but what can you do

Thanks again.

When i was younger everyone smoked everywhere in Canada. But since new laws were passed ,that has all stopped. Now when we go to Asia we really notice the smoke more. Horrible isn't it ?. The only smoke i like is in Jamaica :)....And that little bar in Ko racha.

There is no smoking inside the Absolute Ceylon Pub at Jungceylon shopping centre, same as the Irish Times Pub. Have also heard that the Banana Disco is non smoking.
