Default Florida smoking Laws

My Bother and I are sailing on a cruise from Fort Lauderdale-sails Jan 16th- and staying in Hollywood for a couple of days pre-cruise. We both enjoy smoking cigars and enjoy smoking when we are drinking. It has been a couple of years since I was in Florida and I am trying to find out what if any smoking laws such as smoking in bars or ft restrictions that Florida currently has and what laws/restrictions would be in effect after the first of the year.

I'm not a smoker anymore, (quit a long time ago) but I regret to inform you that there is no smoking in bars and restaurants (or almost anywhere else indoors) in Florida anymore. You might find a restaurant (there are quite a few) with an outdoor patio where you can smoke, and drink at the same time without getting up and going outdoors to enjoy your cigars. Sorry, but I hope you enjoy your cruise anyway.

Most establishments and hotels in the Ft. Lauderdale area are non-smoking. However, the Comfort Inn Airport/Cruiseport on Stirling Rd in Hollywood still has smoking rooms. They also have a nice pool area with a bar, for your drinking and smoking pleasure (some of it is undercover, in case of inclement weather). We just stayed there 11/7, that is why I know this.

Hope this helps.

Default Thank you

Thank you all for your help. I had a feeling that Florida had started to go the way of the rest of the country. I am glad to hear that it has not gone as extreme as Washington has by outlawing smoking bars including any patio areas. I will still be able to enjoy my cruise. It is nice that Carnival still has a Cigar Bar. If anyone knows of any Cigar Bars in Hollywood Florida please let me know.
