DENVER — There is officially no more smoking inside Denver International Airport after the last smoking lounge closed, the airport announced Thursday.

The Smokin’ Bear Lodge Smoking Lounge was located in Concourse C and closed because its lease came to an end, according to the airport.

The airport said the space will be remodeled and become the home of a new restaurant.

DIA has designated smoking areas outside the Jeppesen Terminal on levels 4, 5 and 6.

Smoking is also allowed outside the Westin hotel service doors. Outside of those areas, smoking, including e-cigarettes, is banned on airport property.

With the move, Denver joins more than 600 other airports that are 100 percent smoke-free.
