      “If there are only tables on the street, then you may smoke”- Nemeryuk noted. The first open-air cafes in the capital will start working on April 1. The city authorities have approved the new requirements for open-air cafes on March, 6. Now such cafes cannot be opened on the roofs of houses, at a distance of 5 meters from underground passages and 10 meters from public transport stops. You cannot put tents and garden furniture in seasonal cafes, as well as place tables around a tree. Umbrellas should not rise above the first floor of the building adjoined by the cafe. The anti-smoking law came into full force on June 1, 2014. Smoking has been banned in all restaurants and cafes. The restriction did not affect electronic cigarettes and tobacco-free hookahs. The revenue of Moscow cafes has reportedly dropped by 15-20 percent due to the ban on smoking.
