DC Hookah Bars
Anyone living in/around DC have a favorite spot?
My favorite is a little Prince Cafe right near my campus, in Tenleytown. Decorations are pretty basic, with the standard M Arab music channel going in the background, but the shisha is great, the food is good, and the owner, Mikhail I believe, is a really good, loyal guy. He usually makes drinks free for regulars that don't cause too many problems.
The other one I've been too in town is in Georgetown, but I wasn't very impressed. The owner is an influential Saudi women, but she seems to have enough money that she doesn't worry about the cafe making any. Service is slow, they only have four shisha flavors, and the food is alright. Atmospherically its pretty cool though, full of Arab books and Cds for sale. Seems to tailor more to the after work, business smoker crowd.
Hit me up with your favorite spots!
