    looking for a dive bar recommendation with one catch: smoke free and/or smoke smell is really faint, preferably smoke free.
    not for me, i don't mind smoke at all, but my company isn't as much as a fan.
    thanks in advance guys :beer:

    Yikes! In Vegas, I believe separating those two is gonna be hard to do. My favorite dives are the Huntridge Tavern (Maryland & Charleston). Very few tourist types,solid local underbelly. And the Double Down Saloon (Naples & Paradise/Swenson)… world famous... locals and tourists. Dino's (Las Vegas Blvd & Oakey) is OK too, but since they tore down so many of the dive apartments around that neighborhood, many of the area "ner do wells" have moved on.

    Stage Door and Rusty Spur are my favorites....but probably don’t meet your smoke requirements.

    I'll give a second to Dino's, The Last Neighborhood Bar In Las Vegas—ironically, though, that neighborhood is a bit sketchy—and, of course, Stage Door where you used to get like $2 shots of Jagermeister, but doubt they're still that cheap.

    Agree about Golden Tiki. I *think* they don't allow smoking inside, but I could be wrong. It's waaaaaay less smokey than Frankie's for sure.

    Double Down. Accept no substitutes. Nothing to be done about the smoke though.
