Default hookah lounge + restaurant

Don't worry, i'm not trying to post ANOTHER "i'm opening a hookah lounge and i need tips" thread. I've read them all and i've got the idea...

but i had a question to people who know more about business/law of hookah lounges and what not..

Many states have a law roughly stating "for an establishment to allow indoor smoking, 80%(or whatever it may be) of the sales must be tobacco related"...

well i was wondering:

If in the same building, could you have one business that was SOLELY the smoking portion and then have another business name for all of the food/alcohol part... but STILL keep it in the same building?

I was just curious if anyone on the forums knew about this at all, before i ask a lawyer/commercial broker about it.
