Default lounge pricing

I've never been to a full blown hookah lounge and am courious about shisha pricing (per bowl, gram, hourly, cover @ door ect.) I'll be working out a hypothetical business model soon and just want to get some input.

hmm when i used to go to my local hookah bar in a downtown scene...

lets see, there was no cover charge at the door but i think it was because it was 18+

the pricing was mainly based on bowl, and per bowl it was like 8-10 dollars and thats all they ever really charged, beers were 3 for domestic and 5 for import water was 2, having a good time, priceless....lol

My local charges $7.99 a bowl. But, they have seperate pricing for groups of 3 or more, not sure what it is though. They offer food and drinks as well.

My advice would be to go to a few, since you haven't been to any.

I've been to a few, I tend to like to go to the ones that offer happy hour, $7 a hookah. There is another place that has all you can smoke $10 Wednesday! Although they only serve Soex, so I haven't been there yet.

Most other places are about $10-$12 in the evening. We have been having bad setups lately, so we prefer to just smoke at home, but we still go out now and then and smoke at a hookah bar.

I've gone to hookah bars that are $10 a person for unlimited hookah, Most in the south florida are 10-15 a bowl...which usually last about 30 minutes, one does buy one bowl get the second free but it has to be the same flavor.

Some years ago the local lounge charged like $1 per bowl and it lasted for 1-2 hours. I also knew the guy and gave us free bowls sometimes if we were like 4-5 people.

What you mean per bowl per person? Like if you go 4 ppl and smoke from the same hookah, you'd be charged 30 dollars?
Here they charge you per bowl ( about 7 dollars if my conversion is right) but doesnt make a difference how many ppl are sitting arround the hookah.

The casbah around here just jacked up their prices.
(Havana and AF)
12.00-20.00 for a bowl, (base besides water are extra as well)
1 round of extra coals.

After that you have to buy another one, or do a repack.
LAME
I was so pissed when I found out.

Seeing that the closest hookah lounge to me is 90 miles in either direction, I'll stick with home sessions. I've never been to a hookah lounge, but the closest ones to me charge $10-12 a bowl.
