I own a lounge in New Mexico. The only advice I would give is to make sure that you pre-check all of the laws that are directly relevant to the location you are thinking about. Figure out the zoning laws, city laws, and state laws. Indoor smoking is the main issue; usually meaning no food allowed inside with smoke and the building has to have proper ventilation. Also, make sure you have enough money to pay for the business while you're opening. Plan on the preparation taking a year if you are a first-time business owner. That means 20k or more saved or in a business loan.
