Beer bust favorite Joe's on Juniper says it's banning smoking inside and corralling smokers into a designated area on its popular patio.

The Midtown favorite announced the changes on Monday.

Joe's On Junipers management and staff would like to thank everyone for their stance on our smoking policy.

The public has overwhelmingly spoken and we would like to formally announce that the inside of our restaurant will be non smoking starting Monday March 24.

We will be designating a smoking area on the patio as well.

Thanks,

Joe's On Juniper

The move comes as some gay Atlanta non-smokers push for a city-wide smoking ban in public places. Several LGBT bars have curtailed smoking indoors, but a patchwork of policies remain in place.
