#vypesocial#vypesocial is the UK's first dedicated e-cigarette bar, where smoking-breaks no longer disrupt nights out. #vypesocial wants to reunite smokers and non-smokers and redefine social rules. It will run a series of special e-cigarette-friendly events at the bar including Rebel Dining Society, Future Shorts and Vintage Games Night. LondonTown.com spoke to Shay Ola, founder of the Rebel Dining Society which is working with #vypesocial for the launch of the bar, as well as running a two-night pop-up event Insect Dim Sum there. Ola explained that, while he's not a smoker, he believes e-cigarettes can help people to transition from traditional cigarettes and that the bar will help broaden the debate on the new technology. "You'll always come up against opposition with new stuff," he said. "We know passive smoking [from traditional cigarettes] isn't healthy, but people don't quite get the new technology. But that's the point of the bar; to open up the debate, not to cause controversy.
"No medical association has come forward to say that e-cigarettes can passively damage your health. So, if it's odourless and won't make anyone's clothes smell funny, then I just don't see what the problem is. If it smelt like a cigar or something I could understand, but I think people are just being a little bit anal, for want of a better word."
In reaction to the disgruntled restaurant clientele who complain that e-cigarettes are off-putting and anti-social, he suggests that the reverse is in fact true.
"[Traditional] smoking can be quite anti-social, especially since the smoking ban came in, when everyone leaves the table to have a cigarette and you're left waiting for all the fun people to come back.
"My friends who use e-cigarettes use them discretely, it's not like they're just puffing away and blowing the vapour in your face. It's quite funny actually, they tend to do it secretly with their hands over their mouths so you can't see what they're doing. I think they worry that they look a bit silly smoking plastic cigarettes and feel a bit naughty [smoking inside], but it could pave the way to the future and so I think bars and restaurants should welcome them."
