Cheap charlies is smoking as its open air but no bf. Best advice would be to ask when there and follow the lead of other smokers.
Perhaps have a few drinks n smokes at Charlie's then off to a bar to barfine n bring your wife for the night back there to charlies to socialise.
Shouldn't take longer than one beer to barfine, you should be able to last 15-20 minutes without a puff.
But I'm a lifelong non smoker so don't understand the addiction.
Things are ever changing and its a new rule settling in, I'm sure some compromise will emerge.

Voodoo is actually building an enclosed smoking area.   It will be located at the back area where nobody hardly ever sat anyway.  You are not supposed to be within 10 meters(33 feet) from the entrance.   That rule makes it  illegal to even smoke in the middle of the street on Angeles Walking Street, because the distance between one bar and the bar across the street would have to be more than 20 meters.    From my few trips to Subic though, the setup there should allow you to get 10 meters from the entrance without being 10 meters from the front of another establishment.

Agreed just go get a Puta from one of the bars and only stay 15 minutes in fact you would not even have to buy a drink if you just walk up to the stage and talk to one of the above average looking women which might be a 6 or even a 7 if you are really lucky then just take her back to Cheap Charlies and they even have food and they allow you to order in food from anywhere at no extra charge.  Problem solved and Hot Zone is close by and has some cute ones in the photos.

That works for me, because I am a guy who doesn't go to bars to "hang out" or to drink.    For guys who go to drink and hang out, finding a smoking establishment will be more important to them.   Hell, even for me and the way I barhop, I will still choose a bar with a smoking area over one that doesn't have one.

The 'open air' needs clairification. The ordinance reads...'all public places...' and it included "outdoor spaces".

Agreed and I'm neither a lawyer or a smoker, it was just my understanding that (maybe just for the moment) smoking is permitted in that sort of establishment.
If Charlie's is not a smoking establishment I'm sure someone will comment.
If you take the wording literally, it limits smoking to your own home.

The wording is not ambiguous. It clearly states that smoking is not permitted in any place where the public gathers. This includes open air establishments. If places wish to interpret it to mean that smoking is permitted and if they get cited, it's a risk they have to take.

Where does it say that? Are you talking about the EO or the Local ordinance. Neither say that under "prohibted acts".

 

EO prohibits - ... smoking within enclosed public places and public conveyances.... 

Local ordinance prohibits - smoking in enclosed or partially enclosed public places... etc

Lawyers make their living arguing the wording of laws, its what they do and who they are.
If laws were truly unambiguous there would probably be a 50% reduction in the legal workforce lol with cases decided by an arbitrator rather than a judge and jury.
I do understand your interest in a level playing field in a competitive environment though.

Not ambiguous but open to interpretation:

"It also includes outdoor spaces where facilities are available for the public or where a crowd of people would gather, such as, but not limited to, playgrounds, sports ground or centers, church grounds, health/hospital compounds, transportation terminals, market, parks, resorts, walkways/sideways, entrance ways, waiting areas, and the line."

 

What is open to interpretation would be the phrase "available for the public".   The bars can restrict access to anyone they want, without having to give a reason.    So would a bar really be considered a facility "available to the public"?   It could be argued that any non-government establishment that can restrict access for any reason can not be considered as "public".  

 

On related note.   Since this EO applies only to "public" places, if they really wanted to get around the order, they could change the bars to private clubs and require membership.   It sounds far fetched, but I once lived somewhere in the states where restaurants, clubs, discos, etc., could not sell alcohol.    This prohibition only applied to establishments open to the public.   Their solution was to become private clubs.   At the entrance, you paid a membership fee of $5 which allowed you access to the "private club" for one night.   They even gave you a little membership card to show you were a member.    They could definitely do something similar in the bars here in the PI.   Hell, they could even make the "membership fee" consumable, to be used toward the purchase of beverages.

As that retired dude said make it a private club and sell membership on entry, I remember way back in my mid-20's on trip in Freeport, Texas that was the case. This related to alcohol and the club sold you the mixers and ice on top of the membership fee, wasn't really pleasant to tole you the truth.

Unless I misread, you copied the definition of Public area, not the specified prohibited acts?

My experience was from Texas also.   I was around the same age too, which was around 30 years ago.   Texas had a lot more dry and semi-dry counties back then as compared to now.   However, the location I was at, the places were allowed to sell alcohol, as long as it was a private establishment.  

 

Unless I misread, you copied the definition of Public area, not the specified prohibited acts? 

 

I stand corrected.  You are 100% correct.   The only place where it is prohibited to smoke is enclosed public places and conveyances.    It lists outdoor public places in the definition section of the EO, but doesn't include outdoor public places in the prohibited section of the EO.   Although their intent might have been to make all public gathering places(both indoor and outdoor) as non-smoking, that is NOT what the EO says.   

So the open air bars are probably good to go.   The definition for enclosed would be having a roof AND one or more walls that take up half the wall space.

And then the question is; would that be half the wall space of the entire bar or half the space where the wall is located?

Half the space where the wall is located? ...I'm going to guess no on that one. 'Wall space' meaning the sum total seems more likely.

I am a smoker, and when I go out I like to smoke with my beer drinking. I accept the new law and respect it. I usually go to the Dryden Maze complex because I have always liked the bars and staff there. However, I was there just a little over a week ago and was very surprised that I saw no effort to accommodate the smoker. I asked where to smoke and they tell me go outside.i did, then the doorman tell me to go way back beside the building like I'm hiding. I don't know, I guess the bars are satisfied with the business the non smokers give them. Does anyone know if all the bars are like this?

There was some confusion about smoking outside. Right after the ban was announced, the Barangy was patrolling and telling folks they could not smoke in front. I reminded Capt. Baloy that at the City Hall meeting on the subject, I had specifically asked the Task Force Chairman if smoking was allowed as long as it was not on the streets or sidewalks. He responded in the affirmative. There were no more 'smoking police' patrols.

 

From your message, it looks like I didn't get the word out to our security properly. That will  be taken care of now.

In compliance with EO26 and City Ordinance 19, and under specific instructions of City Health Department, the ground floor area of Cheap Charlies Bar is non-smoking, as is the restaurant area on the second floor, whilst our designated smoking area (DSA) is our open air rooftop bar on the third floor. Common sense and mutual respect prevails.

Very disappointed to hear that smoking is allowed in rooftop bar.
Cheap Charlies was my favorite bar in Subic.
