If you smoke outside at EXDO, you might hang out with these fine people. They may or may not smoke with you.

In spite of its jogging and vegetable addiction, plenty of people in Denver still smoke. No, the other kind. The one you can get in gas stations. Some music venues are better equipped to serve smokers than others, so we've put together a roundup of the best places in town to light up. Remember, pot is still completely illegal to consume in these places. No one should even consider smoking pot at a concert. Not even for a second.

Beta The patio of Beta is a cool, cozy place with two floors, making it certainly one of the biggest smoking sections in Denver. Surrounded by brush on the lower level, patrons just like to cool out on the lounge and converse, especially at night, when it is illuminated with glowing, strung-up lights and wonderful music. One of the best clubs in the nation has one of the best smoking sections in town.

Cervantes/Other Side The outside patio behind the Other Side is a nice little private gem. With a six-foot privacy fence, chairs and often accompanied by food served on the patio, the smoking area is perfect for a quick break from the action inside. The section is also a good place to catch up with others at the show without having to yell over music.

City Hall When City Hall does feature shows in its three-story venue, the roof retracts to offer a view of the sky and the top floor usually doubles as a smoking section. Aligned with couches, tables and chairs, the view is high and offers a great view of the stage. Another smoking section that offers the comfort of a bar so you don't have to go up and down the stairs all night is also a perk.
