Aberystwyth pubs are one of the main attractions for party revilers. Aberystwyth has been well known for its pubs for many years, it has been said that the town contains more pubs within one square mile than anywhere else in the UK! Whether that's true today I'm not sure, but for a small seaside town it does support a large number for it's size.
The large student population together with the summer tourists make for a lively and vibrant combination, the weekends are the busiest period with stag and hen parties, fancy dress and clubbers coming to enjoy a drink and the nightlife.
Since the introduction of the no smoking ban, a couple of pubs have introduced a designated area for smokers, those pubs that don't tend to find the entrance to the pub the main focal point, for those who enjoy a smoke. Personally I think it's great, as I'm not smelling of cigarette smoke after a night out.
Whether the smoking ban has made any significant effect on trade for local pubs, I'm not sure, but undoutably it has changed the behavior of many smokers, either smoking less or giving up altogether, which can't be a bad thing.
