Smoking will be gradually phased out in the cafes. The government’s five year strategy for tobacco control includes the gradual introduction of a smoking ban in public places, such as cafes and bars. There are already cafes in Georgia where smoking has been banned since they were opened. A spokesman for Red Cafe – owned by Lasha Papashvili’s Redix Group – has told TV3 that such restrictions have not caused any problems for their customers. In contrast, the Italian pizzeria Pizza di Roma does not currently operate a smoking ban, although it has sections for non-smokers as well. The establishment plans to fully comply with any anti-smoking laws that are to be introduced. The government’s five year strategy will come into effect from October this year.
