habitué (plural habitués)
- One who frequents a place; a denizen or regular
A month ago the new smoking ban turned thousands of bar-room habitués into reluctant exiles from their usual corner seat.
1892, Walter Besant, chapter III, in The Ivory Gate: A Novel, New York, N.Y.: Harper & Brothers, Franklin Square, OCLC 16832619:
- At half-past nine on this Saturday evening, the parlour of the Salutation Inn, High Holborn, contained most of its customary visitors. […] In former days every tavern of repute kept such a room for its own select circle, a club, or society, of habitués, who met every evening, for a pipe and a cheerful glass.
- A devotee.
