Re: Layout/Atmosphere for Hookah Bar?
The main thing is get decent seats, don't cheap out on them, they have to be nice and relaxing
And don't get a pool table its a waste of space and people only do one or the other, play pool or smoke, the place i go to, the shisha is crap but they have great atmospehere and we play pol.
V.I.P area is a good idea, maybe if you have enough space have enclosed rooms, so people who want to smoke privatly can, and people that like socialising can do that as well, but it all depends on the floor layout and how much space you have.
Also i have been to some shisha bars where they are massive pillows on the floor and you sit on the floor and relax, like shisha bars in india
You might also need to think about, is the only reason people gonna come is for the shisha, lets face it most shisha in shisha cafes are crap, not saying your's will be, but you might need another attraction for people to come, like good food, or even a little game's area when big games are on, people can come chill smoke drink etc and watch the game
