It usually costs me about 10-12 dollars per hookah at a hookah cafe, and depending on mixes it might be a dollar extra, and maybe around 8 dollars for a refill.

$8 per person, $4 refill. Unless it's happy hour. Then it's $6 for the first one.

Wow, that is a lot of disparity between prices. Guess there isn't a "standard" for the lounge business at all. I would have thought that around $15 would be the norm but I was wrong. We don't have lounges up here where I live. I'd like to start one here myself. No hookah retailers, really, either. Just a bookstore that sells tobacco (Rosetta only) and coals (Sinbad QL's only). Smoke happy.

Start your own place, charge 1/3 that, and blow their business up!

serious man, i mean hookahs and entire buckets of shisha pay for them selves within the first few customers every night, I'd say that's the ideal environment to open a new bar in.

There may be more than meets the eye here.

When I was running a lounge down in Tempe, a LOT of our income went to pay taxes and insurance.

Running a tobacco-based business, these lounges may be paying some kind of exorbitant taxes or fees that require them to charge such high prices.

Be very thorough when checking your local tax codes and laws.
