Hi Shanice Jordan, there are 3 things you need to do to help you start and manage a successful cafe/smoke lounge. I understand that you have the funding but you need to be wise so you don't lose your capital. Statistics show that 90% of entrepreneurs failed at their first business and loss their entire capital.
I believe you won't lose your capital because you are on the right track, the first thing you need is to learn and ask questions.
Learn about the business and the best place to learn is from someone who is doing the same business and he/she is successful at it. That's the best guide you can get.
1) Learn from people who are doing the same business, become their friend, patronize them, spend most your time at their lounge, by doing that you won't just be told but see for yourself how the business works.
2) Read about the business so that you can learn new techniques to make your lounge better than that of your competitors.
3) Get a mentor that will motivate you.
I hope you find this helpful, I wish you all the best.

In this type of business location is everything, find someone local who has started this business, that can be very easy, go to an existing shisha bar and ask for the owner, buy him/her a drink, and s/he will start talking, if you get a good location, try and negotiate a good price, pay for 1 year, but before you pay work out all the costs that you will need including salaries. Make sure you can pay for at least 6 months. If your available funds can't last 6 months, then you are going to the casino with this money. Do a simple market survey, don't target your inner circle of friends and family, talk to strangers. Identify the items you will need, and make an inventory, price margins etc, it's a tough business but not impossible, combine it with good food, and people will start flocking it, research on good designs that can make the place attractive and eye catching, it should be on a busy street not in some dump. If it's close to a University, even better, good luck, once it's started don't forget to invite us.
