Pop venue De Helling in Utrecht banned smoking completely starting this week. According to the bar, it is the first nightlife venue in the Netherlands to do so, RTL Nieuws reports.
"We had wanted to organize our bar more flexibly for some time", the organization said. "Because of the smoking area we were short on space. In addition, the complete ban on smoking in hospitality establishments is imminent. So 1+1=2 actually."
