Two restaurants under one roof. Could it work?

I was driving home the other day and I noticed a bunch of restaurants closed at 4pm. Now, that got me to thinking, in these hard economic times if two restaurants could share the same spot. Restaurant B opens from 5pm-2am. Both could share the expenses and keep inventory separate.
restaurant A is already closed, so it wouldn't cut into their business at all.

Of course, there would have to be a way to swap signs. I know it sounds crazy, but could it work?

How confusing do you think this would be?
What potential problems could arise?

If someone showed up at restaurant A looking for restaurant B they could simply say it was closed and come back after 5pm.
