Default Re: Hookah Bars/Lounges

The following is from the only known local hookah bar in my area:

1) How many different brands do they have?
Starbuzz, Havana, Taniger, Al Amir, and Hookah-Hookah

2) How many different flavors from each brand?
between 10-15

3) Quick lites or Naturals?
quicklites, but don't know which brand

4) Egyptians or Myas?
egyptians unless they bought new ones. many rotators.

5) Short or Tall?
tall

6) Sofas, Booths, couches or more like tables and chairs?
Sofas, tables, chairs (living room type). As well as 1-2 big screen TV's.


As to what I look for, it would be:

1) How many different brands do they have?
Starbuzz, Layalina, Al Fakher, Nakhla, Al Waha... minuim

2) How many different flavors from each brand?
to start (first opening) atleast 5-10 per brand, then narrow it down after seeing what does/doesn't sell

3) Quick lites or Naturals?
Naturals perfered, but GOOD quaility QL (Goldens) would be fine as well

4) Egyptians or Myas?
Egyptians hands down

5) Short or Tall?
A decent mix of both, allow the customer to request a size would be nice as well

6) Sofas, Booths, couches or more like tables and chairs?
Sofas would be the most comfortable, but standard table & chairs would work better long run. Stay away from booths - i can see trouble that way.
