Re: Creating a hookah bar
I'd stay away from the Al Amir. It has nothing to offer to hookah smokers unless you wanted to go with blackberry. All other Al Amir I've had has not left me overly impressed. Layalina, Al Fakher and Havana for mid-range and Starbuzz for Premium. I would offer Tangiers for the hardcore nico-fit smoker with the caveat of its throat tickling for most smokers if it does not smoke right.
Couches are a must, booths are nice.
I'd go wit regular lighting in the day and a red/blue hue combo for night time smoking.
I would definitely look into a full kitchen. Always look for room to grow. I'd nix the plasmas because hookah should be conversation heavy.
