TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - People in Tupelo have a new spot to hang out.
Last month, Kwanza Smith opened the first Black-owned cigar and hookah lounge in Tupelo.
The lounge Blue Majik is located in the downtown area.
“If you want to get out, relax, and be in an adult atmosphere, this is it,” he said.
Smith is happy his lounge can provide people some normalcy during this time.
Business has been good, Smith said. He believes part of it is because he and his partner didn’t open the lounge at the beginning of the pandemic.
“Now that the pandemic has happened, we’re kinda in the area where we know how to deal with it.”
Blue Majik is open every day except Tuesdays.
