BarFly's Review of Greater Trumps
As most every outpost of the McMenamins empire turns non-smoking, this tiny, befogged, antique-laden cigar bar seems engineered to provide a karmic safety valve of sorts, encouraging clientele to puff through a well-tended selection of Domincans and Hondurans as well as singly-sold cigarettes alongside their estimable liquor imports.
Attached to the Bagdad Theatre, the outdoor seating just off Hawthorne's lovely come summer and, while the nineteenth century drawing room motif's as fakey as you'd imagine (an animatronic Churchill wouldn't be out of place), some patrons do come alone simply to read and smoke... like, y'know, Europeans and shit.

Or, at least it was when I last went in 2008. I can't see a reason to return now that I can't smoke inside. The times I did go were great. They were happy to see me smoking a pipe (as many folks just came in for a beer and a regular cigarette).
Sad. Makes me wishes they allow bars to CHOOSE weather or not they wanted to ban indoor smoking.
In response to the first post, I heartily disagree. The Hosts at trumps have always been amazing and nice! They are not the cuddly, huggy type by are warm and fun and inviting. Also, I have been to many trivia nights across town and they all have a team number limit. so...stop bitching about that. The fact that they dont have a theme is refreshing as other trivia nights are often boring or to far off to be fun. They also are able to include many questions about current events which is always fun. The broad range os questions of rad and fun. Its always good to have a few all stars on your team, a history buff, a sports buff, etc.

My friends and I were loooking for something fun to do on a Monday night and always enjoy a good trivia night. We headed down to Greater Trumps, which we've always enjoyed, to try their Monday night trivia for the first time. We were very disappointed. The host was NOT friendly, rude as a matter of fact. The questions were completely random (no theme, etc. as at most trivia nights). Teams were limited to 5 members, so our group had to split into two or be docked points for the extra members.
The food was good, the beer was good, but the triva portion of the evening was not good. I would urge Greater Trumps to get a new and improved trivia host.
This is a good place to go alone, sit, read, smoke, drink. There are only a few beer and wine choices, but a decent liquor selection. No jukebox, no television, just a mellow closet-sized bar.
