First of all, the hanging plants at the Sky Bar are thriving more than your lungs if you care about this category, and we do, so we enjoy smoking inside/outside on the Key West-feeling second floor at Mt. Washington Tavern. The bartenders serve Mexican and other bottled beer and blended slushies from the margarita machine while handing you an ash tray without blinking. Here you can still settle in at low tables surrounded with wicker love seats or metal lawn furniture sets with umbrellas, or claim one of the stools at the tall bar tables on white-tiled floors and light up while drinking a cold one on the partly-roofed open space that offers a view of the sun shining during the day and the starry sky at night.
