BRENTWOOD -- The night life in downtown Brentwood is picking up for the summer with the opening of a hookah lounge last week and a pub in August.

What a Grind Coffee is expanding its coffee shop business to incorporate a hookah lounge and Middle Eastern menu at night. Located at 761 Second St. near Brentwood City Hall and Liberty High School, What a Grind will feature hookahs on its patio from 5 p.m. until midnight daily.

Middle Eastern fare served at the cafe will include kebabs, sausage, falafel, hummus and various salads. Its patio seats 40 to 45 people, and customers must show an ID and be at least 18 years old for the hookahs.

From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., What a Grind will still operate as a cafe and coffee house, according to co-owner Sam Seibaa. During the day, it serves specialty coffee drinks, sandwiches, snacks and some Middle Eastern food.

Additionally, Oak Street Pub will open in early August at 311 Oak St. in downtown Brentwood. It will feature live music, light food, a full bar, pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and a jukebox with outdoor patio seating from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
