    Abstract

    In many jurisdictions around the world, the policy of banning tobacco smoking from public places has been progressively introduced. This has included the prohibition of smoking on premises licensed for the sale and consumption of alcohol, such as bars, restaurants and pubs. Of all these types of venues, the one which would appear to present the greatest challenge for operators attempting to manage the impact of this policy is nightclubs. This article examines how the introduction of a comprehensive nationwide smoking ban in Scotland was managed by city centre nightclubs and how this was viewed by their patrons.
