Total Communication Systems Inc / Indecent Exposure Hookah Lounge, 3400 Fernandina Road: fall 2009   5 comments

Posted at 12:17 am in Uncategorized

I have to admit that I always wondered about this place as I would see it from I-26 driving to Harbison. It seemed somewhat contradictory to me in that I always figured a hookah lounge would be a middle-eastern place with very modest dress, but the name Indecent Exposure made it sound like the front for a strip club.

Given the exterior windows, it plainly wasn't a strip club, and I guess the market for hookah smoking isn't that large in Columbia because I don't think the place was there much longer than a year before folding.

UPDATE 7 October 2009: Added "Total Communication Systems Inc" to the post title based on the comments.

  1. Wasn't this also a Nextel retail store for several years?

  3. Indecent Exposure was a "head shop". It only lasted a few months. Never understood why they didnt locate closer to USC.

  4. Indecent Exposure was owned by the same guy that owns Disorderly Conduct in 5 Points. He had a another store on Two Notch that was called Disturbing the Peace or something. He had to close those two locations when, I kid you not, the FBI investigated him for suspected trafficking and dealing. He was cleared seeing as how Disorderly Conduct is still there.

  5. So that's the secret, all you have to do is name your business after a public offense. Let's see: Obstructing Traffic, Public Drunkenness, Inciting A Riot, Tampering With A Landmark, Abusive Language, Loitering, Equity Skimming, Unreasonable Noise, Lascivious Behavior, Unlawful Restraint, Escape From Custody ... Actually, come to think of it, a couple of those would make fairly decent names for a band.
