Hookah Bar Design Complications

What does the law say?

The smokefree legislation for England (1997) makes it a criminal offence to allow

smoking, which includes shisha, in virtually all enclosed public places and all

workspaces. Indoor workplace smoking is a criminal offence and anyone wanting to

smoke has to go outside in an open area to smoke.

What is ‘substantially enclosed’?

Areas you provide for use by smokers with a ceiling or roof but have an opening in the

walls, which is less than half the total area of the walls. The area of the opening does

not include doors, windows or any other fittings that can be opened or shut. Temporary

awnings, umbrellas, canopies, shutters, doors or windows are assumed closed or fully

extended when calculating the 50 per cent rule.

What is ‘enclosed’?

Areas you provide for use by smokers with a ceiling or roof and (except for doors,

windows or passageways) are wholly enclosed either on a permanent or temporary

basis. Shelters too close to other structures may be considered enclosed.
