The smoking balcony at GF that you refer to seems to be part of the remodel of Mizner's and is unlikely to remain a smoking area as it will be part of the extended bar.So i dont smoke ciggs, but i do enjoy a nightly cigar. Last year we went to the poly, and it wasnt too bad to grab a drink, and then walk over to a DSA bench. The only real complaint was that it limits your cigar choice to a 1 drink length. It is honestly not a big deal as i only head over after family is bedding down for the night anyway.
The real question i had was around my next stay. I am heading to GF next June for a 2 week stay. I was excited reading that there was a balcony nearby to Mizner's to grab a drink, and go sit down for a cigar. I was curious if anyone else has done this in the evening, and if there are any unforseen hassles around it?
The second part of this question is that I heard Mizner's is getting a remodel, and if the answer to the above is "yes it is a great place to enjoy a great stick to wind down the day", will it still be that after the remodel?
i know it is a long shot, but there is very little info around this out on public boards.
