Re: So iam looking to open a hookah lounge?
Location matters, unless...
you fly dmc over from the UK and get him to do ALL of his crazy experiments.
It's almost guranteed that you will get good business. LOL
First of all, make sure you are nice. Make sure there isn't bad music that can taint the hookah smoking experience, or taint the image of hookah. I'm not good with numbers, so you're not gonna get a "how much should i charge" number from me. make sure you use natural coals. I wouldn't include alcohol, too much of a hassle. Also, getting windcovers for all your hookahs is a must; it cuts down on all the coals you'll have to use.
You could also have a VIP club where people could get discounts if they join and are frequent smokers. There's a bunch of stuff that the HP community has talked about, i'm sure you can find it all with the search.
