Re: what do you think?
1)First and foremost, GOOD SERVICE!!! Keep those hot coals coming, have enough employees
2)Good enviroment - meaning decoration, chairs etc; hookah is fromthe middle east, decor should revolve around that theme in my opinion
3)Good hookah - this is a given, if your hookahs are cheaps and your tobacco is cheap your destined to fail; wide variety of flavors; can't go wrong w/ Al Fakher
4)Good Music - I have to say, stay away from rap. it might sound wrong what I am about to say, but even though half the world listens to rap, it doesn't always attract the desired crowd, you want to steer clear of troublemakers; what kind of a hookah lounge doesn't play some arabic music, get yourself some Ehab Tawfik cd's and you'll be straight, live music on aoccasion won't hurt either
5)Good Drinks - tea, coffee, & sodas, I don't think hookah and alcohol mixes very well, could be a little dangerous as well, just imagine a bunch of drunk peopl tripping over a hookah with fresh coals on it
