Default Hookah Lounge Licenses...?

Hey guys, sorry if this isn't in the right place, you can move it if not, but i think it is lol. anyway...

Long story short, me and my friend are thinking of opening a small hookah lounge in our town. It is a smallish college town. So constant flux of new students etc. We have been doing a lot of reading/thinking and want to do it. We have most of it figured out except two things:

1) What kind of licenses would we need? I know there are different ways of doing it such as making it a private club, with food, with drinks, etc. Which option would be the best and how would we go about getting them? We don't really want to deal with food, probably just drinks, like a small fountain or something. btw we live in Pennsylvania.

2) Where can I find supplies? Are there any vendors who sell wholesale? I am not looking for one who only sells huge amounts though. Probably around 20-30 to get started (unless you have a better suggestion). Anyone who could direct me would be great. Also which brands/models would be best suited for a lounge setting?

Any help would be greatly appreciated and i thank you in advanced. If I think of anything else Ill post it up here later.

I don't know about PA but I know in California the "private club" label helps make zoning ordinances and indoor smoking statutes slightly less of a pain in the ass. Of course then u have to deal with the fact that, as a private club, you are not supposed to let just anyone in off the street but restrict it to "members", which would probably work against you if you plan to capitalize of the flow of college students.

as for brands/models the KM Kafae is purpose built for hookah bars so there ya go...

^I had read about the private club license. And I agree with it working against me. And I will check out that KM. Thanks for the input!


Does anyone know of any members on here that own/owned a lounge that could maybe help me out?

Wonderland wrote up an excellent thread here: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10836 Don't just read the first post though, it develops through both pages.
