The owner of the Asador Guadalmina in San Pedro de Alcántara which was closed down for a period for ignoring Spain’s new smoking legislation, says he may allow smoking on the premises again.

José Eugenio Arias-Camison told La Opinión de Málaga on Thursday that he will allow his customers to smoke from September 30 if his business continues to suffer losses. He said his clientele has dropped by between 30 and 40% since he reopened the restaurant as a smoke-free zone.

Sources at the Junta de Andalucía’s health department told the newspaper that if the owner fails to observe the law he will be closed down again. He’s already been fined 145,000 €, for his 39-day ‘mutiny’ after the new legislation came into force, although it’s understood that the health department has now been reduced the amount to 90,000 €.

The paper indicates that Arias-Camisón is hopeful that the Partido Popular will overturn the legislation if they win the next general election.
