Default Re: hookah lounge profits?

my friend runs a hookah lounge, he was breaking even with a packed house on friday and saturdays and half empty every other day. now he is packed every night and his lunch crowd is about 10% capacity. he profits but nothing spectacular. Not that I know anything about business (i have a PhD in a directly related field). But he runs the place about as well as can be expected. His location is good but not ideal and his expenses are low because a good amount of family pitches in and helps.(on top of their regular jobs)
I dont think the margin is there unless you happen to get a liquor license as well.
So yeah you could make some money but good luck with a nice lifestyle
