38 N. French Broad under Club Hairspray in our old spot…21+
Tony Kiss at the Asheville Citizen-Times reports:
The new Hookah Joe’s will be located in its former home at the downtown Club Hairspray complex, 38B N. French Broad Ave., McHugh said. The venue began in 2005 in the lower level of what is now the Thirsty Monk bar at the corner of of Coxe and Patton Avenues.
McHugh shuttered Hookah Joe’s in 2010 in the wake of anti-smoking regulations in Asheville. He remained in contact with Hairspray owner Loredana Hovard and has numerous conversations with the Buncombe County Health Department about how to reopen and be compliant with smoking regulations.
In the end, McHugh said he “decided to put my fighting the law on hold” and will serve complaint tobacco-free “teasha” inside the bar, and traditional “shisha” in the outdoor courtyard.
The new Hookah Joe’s will be open at 7 p.m. nightly and feature “chillout” tunes except on Tuesdays, when an open mic will be held and Thursdays when reggae is played.
