    Default Has anyone ever gotten their E-Cig taken away by a Night Club?

    Or turned down at the door for having one?

    A lot of clubs around here have strict searches and pat downs and some are really relentless (throwing away unopened packs of gum, for example)

    I'm a producer/DJ and visit a lot of nightclubs. Recently I quit smoking and switched to an Ego style ecig. It's obvious to see how it may look like some sort of drug paraphernalia to the uninformed. I'm a little worried about the risk of losing an expensive piece of equipment (and my sanity for the night)

    At the risk of relapsing, I'm really trying to avoid ever having to go back to analogs for anything and really hate the less conspicuous cig-a-likes (although something tells me those could be a target as well) so I'm just curious to see if any forum members have ever gotten their gear confiscated by confused bouncers.

    That is the norm for Private property. It is just that Private and they can make their own rules. You are an invited guest not a right to enter public area. Unless their rules conflict with local or federal laws you do not have to comply but you can be refused admission or if inside be asked to leave. Besides smuggling and stealth vaping is fun! Stock up on disposable Cig-A-Likes.

    Yeah I guess that's what I'll have to start doing. At least until I'm the super-star headliner :P

    Buy some cheap mini egos (350mah or 450 mah) and/or get some disposables like White Clouds

    I was thinking about staying loyal to Halo and picking up a G6 for more stealthy vaping. I hear as far as cigalikes that one is top of the line.

    It sounds like you're hanging out in the same bars that gang thugs like to hang out in.

    Regardless, a bar has every right to ask you not to vape, or to not let you enter. They can't just steal your belongings. If a club took anything I owned, I'd call the cops and raise hell.

    But honestly, I think you are worried for nothing. Bars and clubs are pretty familiar with these.

    30 years of smoking, over 3 packs a day before I started vaping. Then I bought my first PV. Cigarettes have lost their power over me. I've been free since 10/06/2011. Thanks ECF!

    I'm in SLC, I'm a dj and I play at various raves and clubs and every venue I've been to recently has really accepted e-cigs with open arms, as far as I can tell, as long as you vape in the smokers section.

    Most clubs don't care about them that i have been to. Once even in vancouver, where ecigarettes or are not as readily available they patted me down, felt the ego and simply asked if it was an e cig and then let me in.

    Why on earth would anyone submit to a pat down search to enter a club?
