Smoking ban? What smoking ban?

We recently got an up-to-date list of bars that have received exemptions from the city's nine-month-old smoking ban from gadfly Bill Hannegan, who advocates for the freedom to light up. Turns out there are 115 places in St. Louis City where you can get your gin with a side of nicotine -- and that's not even counting the bars that have gotten exemptions in St. Louis County.

Both city and county exempt bars where food provides 25 percent or less of the total revenue. The city also requires that exempted bars be less than 2,000 square feet.

But, as you can see from the giant list below, there are plenty of little saloons in this town where a) the food isn't the main attraction, and b) the footprint is tiny.

The complete list follows. Don't blame us if addresses are wrong or places have closed; this is the official city roster, and we take no responsibility for their record-keeping.
