Tiki Ti making a big change: you'll no longer be able to light up a cigarette inside. Though the smoking ban went into effect in California in 1995, Tiki Ti has always said they don't have to comply because it's an owner-operated bar with no employees. However, the Los Feliz watering hole announced yesterday via their Facebook page that they're going non-smoking starting June 1.

Do Y'all remember the April fools joke we had a couple of years ago about no more smoking at the Tiki Ti? Yeah, well as of June 1, the Tiki Ti will be a non smoking bar, just like everyone else. No joke. You can still smoke outside, but this will be our last "indoor smoking" week at the Ti. Peace. Out. ::Drops mic::

This news comes after Tiki Ti's 'indefinite' closure for "restructuring and stuff" that turned out to only be for two weeks.
