Re: hookah lounge + restaurant
When I was in that business I ran the private club angle and I had 2 legally separate businesses (shisha cafe & book/record shop) with adjoining property. In order to make it work the two businesses needed to be legally separate and have different store fronts. It worked out just fine but in the end I sold it because the hassle and time consumed didn't justify the profits. The guys that bought it from from me ran in into the ground in about a year.
