Default actually had a good lounge experience

tonight went out for sushi with the wife, need to get out with all of the family happenings like holidays and our new edition. we finished sushi early and headed to anaheim and smoked at dreamz cafe. in anaheim there are a bunch of lounges and they're usually not my style for many reasons, mainly being that i can make i own hookah whenever i want at home the way i like it, but, sometimes you need to get out so it was a very enjoyable atmosphere, both arabic and american music, crowd was early 20's, a bit younger than me but still was really nice. i may have to do this once in awhile just to get out.

I have been wanting to hit a good lounge for a while now. Sadly most of the hookah specific lounges have been converting more to a club atmosphere rather than a smoking lounge as of late in Boston. I have my eyes et on Stanza Dei Sigari. it's a cigar focused lounge (which is beautiful for me and my buddies) but they have a hookah room too with a cool selection of hookahs and an ok selection of tobacco. Their drink list is awesome and their setting is pretty astounding. lots of cigar memorabilia. I am waiting for some friends to save up some money after the holiday season and then we are making a night of it.

ha, right now I live in kiev, ukraine , and one thing is, that hookah here is THE THING in every decnt bar and every club has hookah on theyr menu, and there are planty hookah bars that have green tea, arabic foods and spices, and all other things that go great with hooka, so for me it is no problem at all to spend an amazing hookah evening, with everything you might need thought with the world srisis, right ow its cheaper to uy yout own hookah, then to go smoke hookah 3 times in a hookah-lounge....

I normally don't go to hookah bars for the smoke, but for the atmosphere. There is a vendor who supplies all of houston that has a very small bar around the corner from me. It almost feels like going to a friend's house and hanging out in the game room. Pretty good food too, and he blends his own shisha.

It's great to hear positive stuff about shisha cafes since the news is so overwhelmingly negative or at least it seems that way. When I ran a lounge I had to play popular type music but it would be great to see a lounge that plays traditional Arabic music. Even here the local places play crap like Leila K. But in the end, if the owner knows his stuff and the customers are cool it works out.

We have a restaurant that has traditional hookahs and we like them most. Mainly because they will talk with us and let us control the heat and coals and what not. The absolute worst experience was a Cigar bar that had hookahs and it was terrible. Great atmosphere terrible experience. Best Arabic food Tarboosh no doubt. Lizzy's is the best all round food but Tarboosh has a fairly nice Arabic menu. Aladdin's is nice but basically just has bar food. Decent nachos but not the best quality just good flavor. Tarboosh and Aladdin's have bulk coals one uses mesquite the other uses Hickory I think. Both woods actually give a slight flavor to the smoke but generally it is a pleasant addition. However, the heat management as with most bulk coals sucks and they won't give you tongs or anything like that. They also both use these cheap Open chamber hookahs that purge horribly. Blow all you want and you can't clear the bad smoke out. Lizzy's is the best all around but my wife loves the others for their coals not for the heat management but for the flavor when it actually is right.

We haven't been to a hookah lounge since I got mine but I imagine at some point we will point the truck towards Nashville and hit Tarboosh for a nice lamb sandwich and some hookah with a great view of downtown.
