Berkeley, CA joins the ranks of Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and San Francisco in allowing cannabis lounges where marijuana can be consumed on premises.
In October of 2019 Los Angeles was the first to permit a cannabis lounge in the state. Lowell Cafe, situated in West Hollywood is both a restaurant and lounge. And several more were not far behind with Los Angeles now home to so many cannabis lounges there is now a Top Ten on Yelp.
With the success of lounges in California other states where marijuana is legal are also considering allowing businesses to open lounges for consumption on site. Could “pot bars” become the new local bar?
