As restaurants and bars across the nation shutter temporarily in the face of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Dennis McKinley is taking precautions with his businesses as well. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Porsha Williams' fiancé heads up Cru Hookah Lounge. The Atlanta-based business currently has two local outposts and four additional locations are set to open soon. But for the time being, the lounges are indefinitely closed. 

In a March 17 Instagram post, The Real Housewives of Atlanta beau encouraged his followers to: "Say no to [hookah] during the Corona! Both [Cru Midtown] & [Cru Peters Street] will be back soon!" The announcement accompanied a graphic that explained: "Due to heath concerns we are temporarily closed." 

Dennis still seems optimistic about the future of his business after the temporary closures. In his caption, he made a point of adding that the four in-the-works Cru locations will be coming soon, opening in Charlotte, Denver, Austin, and Houston. 

Meanwhile, Dennis' hot dog business, The Original Hot Dog Factory, remains open for delivery.
