My firends father owns a hookah lounge in Saint Petersburg Florida and its amazing, he said he only spent 15k to start it up. Very traditional, lounge/cafe environment not nightclub/bar feel. I love it! he recently starting giving a free round (4 max) of beer (cheap domestic of coarse) to people of age buying. But he also gives complementary waters and arabic coffees with your hookah. He set up a pretty authentic arabic air to the place, and even the younger crowd enjoys the relaxing environment. I would say that the variety of shisha you will be offering may be a downfall, most lounges I go to serve one brand exclusively
