Hookah Hotspot:

Genie hookah lounge to open on Montgomery

Entrepreneur Alec Habli and his wife Brittany have released plans to open a new hookah bar on Montgomery Road. Genie Hookah Lounge will take the place of the vacant property, formerly X-Rays Tanning, next to Betta's Italian oven. The site is a converted two-story 1920s town house.

The owners plan on an "Arabian Nights" feel to the bar, with the upstairs intended for extra seating and a space for private parties. Brittany Habli is very enthusiastic about opening the hookah lounge and she encourages students

to check it out when it opens.

"We are very excited for the opportunity to bring the Xavier students Genie Hookah Lounge. It will be a hang-out

with a cool modern twist to an Arabian Nights theme where

students can relax with friends after a long day of studying.

We invite you all to come to smoke our featured item, hookah along with drinks and free Wifi," Habli said.

Hookah bars have become very popular in the United States as a place to smoke flavored tobacco through a tall, often elegant, smoking pipe with friends in a relaxing

environment. The Habli's have mooted Feb. 15 as a possible date for opening the "Genie Hookah Lounge,"

but there is a possibility that they will open its doors to the public earlier.
