    Let's compile a list of vape-friendly businesses in the state!

    If you've been to a restaraunt, a bar, or other business that allows vaping, please let us know! Just list the name of the establishment, the city it's located in, the type of business it is, and maybe a few words about how you were received. My favorite place to eat is vape friendly:

    Eat-A-Bite Bar and Restaraunt
    Shikellamy Ave, Sunbury

    This is our regular Thursday night haunt. The staff has always welcomed us and our PVs with open arms. We sit at the bar, have our dinners, and vape away! :toast:

    Please share your experiences!

    We really don't go out that often, but so far I haven't really had a problem anywhere because I don't blow vapor like there is no tomorrow. I feel very conspicuous if I do that. I take a hit here and there maybe that's stealth? I don't make it obvious so no one says anything, but I'm sure no where around here where I live would they like to see volumes of vapor.

    Hubby goes there several times a week for lunch. It's got a bar, so technically, smoking is allowed, but he said they're always friendly and nice about his box mod.

    I was at Hershey Park this past weekend. I figured I would check in with guest services before entering the park with my pv, they didn't outright say yes or no but rather recommended staying around the designated smoking sections in case other guests complained. The representatives I spoke with weren't really informed about pv's but appeared quite interested after I briefly explained it. I brought in a wetbox for convienance and the ability to stealth vape if needed. I used it throughout the park without bringing unwanted attention to it and didn't have any problems.

    I work there and as long as no other guests complain they won't do anything about it. I have seen people smoking analogs outside the designated smoking areas and as long as no other guests complain they won't do anything about it unless you get the security guard on a power trip. If someone does complain they won't kick you out of the park or anything but they will ask you not to do it and they will likely be very polite about it (if they are not then take note of their name and lodge a complaint with guest services). I can't really see anyone complaining about it as long as you aren't standing in line for one of the coasters or in a store blowing huge clouds of vapor in people's faces. I don't vape in public areas of the park when it is open and I am working but I don't leave my office without my pv and use it in just about all non-public areas of the park including my office, which is located it the same building as the season pass office. I work in retail and as far as my department goes I was the only smoker left in the whole building. So far everyone in my department has been supportive of my switch but I don't call a whole lot of attention to the fact that I use it in my office.

    It just occurred to me to add another vape friendly establishment:

    ROAD'S END PUB IN HAZLETON

    We had dinner there and vaped all evening and the staff never gave us a hard time. Maybe our server didn't notice, though, we were kind of stealthy.

    :p

    I was at PJ Whelihan's in Blue Bell, PA, 7/29/2010.

    I asked the manager about vaping inside and he said it was fine with him.

    12 Steps in Philadelphia's Italian Market. Of course it's a smoking bar so...but the owner used to vape so she totally isn't allowed to laugh at it.

    A smoking bar? Now that's an endangered species. I'll have to check it out, thanks! :)

    Hah! Not over in this part of South Philly. There's 12Steps, Ray's, The Dive and Triangle that are all smoke bars. It's actually kind of bumming me out now that I've quit smoking because I like all four of those places way more than other bars around here. :p

    I was at MaGerks in Fort Washington last night, talked with the manager about e-cigaretts and vaping and he was ok with it. They also do private parties.
    I ran in to him later that night and he saw me with my Gold SD and said he hadn't seen anything like that before (he he). Had only seen the cig styles before.

    The wife and I go to Blind Hartman's Tavern a lot with ours which is just outside Reading. Though it is a smoking bar. They have a separate restaurant for the non-smoking which we have not tried to vape in yet, as we are usually their for the bands and stuff anyways inside the bar area.

    I concur this place was great and the food was outstanding and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this place if we have ever have meetup central to Philli, Harrisburg, Lehigh Valley and some areas of the Poconos.

    Tell me about it. The food there is so good. That one meal that me and my wife split, (and didn't finish), became my dinner. Such huge portions for the price. About the only thing I could say bad about the place is the lighting is very dim. But, then again we were in the bar.

    Hey folks, I'm not a member of the group (I live in southwestern NY just minutes from the PA border) but spend most of my weekends playing with my band in various NW PA bars. I can attest that the following places are Vape-OK:

    Ashley's Pub in Spartansburg
    Boonie's Sports Bar in Titusville
    The Corner Bar in Bradford
    The Corner Bar in Smethport
    Fairmont Tavern in Youngsville
    Fairway 12 in Conneaut Lake
    Jose's in Lewis Run
    Oasis Pub in Erie
    Ray's Hot Spot in Marienville
    Seldom Inn in Tionesta
    Speed'eez in North East (the town in northwestern PA hehehe)
    Tamarack Tavern in Corry
    The Oasis in Oil City

    I should note that all of these locations are bars that also allow smoking, but still - I've vaped openly at them with no issues :)

    I have also vaped at the Warren Moose Lodge #109 in Warren PA (a non-smoking establishment) and didn't get any complaints, but I also was not being obvious about it, so I'm not sure what their specific policy is.

    Anyway, hope that helps!
