"The irony is there are many non-smoking places now than there use to be ", says Alsop.
The owner of peephole in Downtown Evansville is a staunch supporter of the right to choose.
"We did what private business is supposed to do. We listen to the market instead of the government", he added.
For the last two weeks since Indiana struck down the smoking ban; he's allowed his patrons to smoke but, now the owner has had a change of heart.
"It became obious to me that the smoking crowds were tolerant of going outside than the non-smoking crowd is with being inside. I was looking at some infiltration systems and you know it just wasn't going to be enough".
So the bar that once was non-smoking due to the law, then went to smoking when the ban was overturned, will once again return to non- smoking. Alsop says he's simply exercising his freedom to choose.
"We private business were not publicly owned. I understand why the civic center and the post office all those should be and children should be protected. But, adult only bars; the adult can make that decision and vote with their dollar. We don't need government intervention" he said.
