The Corner

A Question For Adler

You mention that the market is perfectly capable of generating smoke-free bars if people want them. I’ve always been struck by how uncommon such bars are outside of places where smokelessness is mandatory. Why do you suppose that is? Clearly there are a great many people who dislike smoke. Even assuming that smokers drink more, why aren’t there more bars that cater to them?
