A local hookah bar has become a fixture in Charlotte’s dining scene.
“We had people come in who didn’t know we had hookah bars,” said Jake Goudreau, owner of the Ekoostik Hookah Bar.
Goudreau said people would come to the restaurant and leave a tip, which he said was much appreciated.
“They would always say thank you for the tip, it was great,” he said.
The owner said the restaurant has a huge following and is an important part of his business.
“It’s a very positive impact on the local community.
We’re just trying to do it in a way that’s respectful to the local communities and the business community,” he added.
The Ekoastik Hookahs are located at 707 S. Main St., Charlotte, North Carolina 27203.
