Hookah lounges have existed in one form or another since the around the 16th Century in the Middle East and Persia, and in America the communal tobacco-smoking experience is continuing to grow in popularity as people look for alternatives to activities like cigarette smoking and hopping bars.
In other words, there’s never been a better time to get in on the hookah lounge and shisha bar trend. And with or without 500 years of proven popularity, if you own a hookah bar or are thinking of opening one, you’re going to need the right tools to succeed. One of those tools is a point of sale system from Clover™.

Useful Clover™ Apps for Hookah Lounges and Shisha Bars
Remember the dedicated app market we mentioned? Here are just a few of the apps Clover™ offers that would be of particular benefit to a hookah lounge or shisha bar.
Age Verification – Shisha is tobacco, after all, and you have to make sure your customers are of legal smoking age. This is especially important if your hookah bars also serves alcohol. The Age Verification Clover™ app creates system prompts when age-restricted items are sold, and supports 2D driver’s license scanning with a separately purchased scanner.
stockIt – This app makes inventory and purchasing a breeze. stockIt keeps track of inventory, automatically places orders to vendors when supplies are low, and more.
Digital Word of Mouth – There can be a lot of competition when it comes to hookah bars, especially in places like college towns. Stay ahead of the competition with automated, fully comprehensive marketing from the Digital Word of Mouth app. Customer loyalty, coupons, rewards, referrals, reviews, SMS marketing, and social media are all included in what Digital Word of Mouth can do for you.
