I have a lot of smoker friends and business associates who come to San Francisco from out of town and want to go out to places they feel comfortable lighting up. I, on the other hand, do not smoke and hate feeling like my lungs are going to be contaminated for weeks to come. In addition, I find that lots of "smoker" bars don't offer much more of value other thant he ability to smoke.
Are there good, fun bars in San Francisco that strike a balance between appeal to smokers and non-smokers alike (and where I'll be able to see more than 5 feet through the haze)?
A friend mentioned a place over on Montgomery, but I haven't checked it out yet.
