Default Re: Opening a hookah bar HELP

Also I know that New York has some pretty stringent laws regarding smoking in bars, but since you're thinking of making it an outdoor bar, check the laws regarding smoking near the entrance of a bar. Some places such as Portland, ME have laws that forbid smoking within 50 feet of the entrance of a bar. I'm farily sure there are similar laws in Mass and it seems to be sweeping through more liberal states without a second's thought. Just consider that opening a hookah bar might be a short lived endeavor if you don't commit to being a smoking bar/lounge. This is not the most conducive time for tobacconists so just be wary and know what you're getting into. Last thing you want to do is invest in a great set of rigs and tobacco to find that your outdoor smoking area which worked fine for cigarettes is now in violation because of the addition of hookahs.
