New Hampshire Bill Would Allow Drinks in Cigar Bars

Andrew Nagy
Posted: February 23, 2009

A bipartisan bill introduced in the New Hampshire House would, if passed, grant cigar bars the right to sell alcohol to its patrons so they could socialize and enjoy a smoke and cigar indoors.

Rep. John Hunt, R-Cheshire, and Rep. Edward Butler, D-Carroll, cosponsored the bill, which was referred last Wednesday to the Ways and Means Committee.

The bill would allow businesses deriving "60 percent of total business income" from cigar-related products to apply for the beverage and liquor license.

It has been over two years since the "Live Free or Die" state banned smoking from bars and restaurants.

The next hearing for the bill has not yet been set.
