Chicago Hookahs

Iím not a smoker (although I have) but I heard some people talking about a hookah lounge/restaurant in Chicago. It sounds like this would be a fun thing to do with some friends as well as to see some belly dancing.

Has anyone done this? Any recommendations?

the last time I smoked from a hookah, I spent the night watching tom and Jerry, and safe it to say, I thought i was watching the greatest crime drama EVER.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

sorry if this sounds stupid (not into smoking anything besides cigarettes) but what are you actually smoking in the hookah?

Only two types of people go to hookahs, steers and queers. I don't see any steers.

Go down Clark, it's 1 block to the left of the old Twisted Spoke (Closed down). I think it's 3 stores to the right after the viaduct. They have pieces for cheap. Bongs, bowls, hookahs, spider bongs, 1-ee's, cleaners, pouches, everything pretty much. My friend told me about it.

When I was in Tech School in Texas I went to this hookah bar/ Mediterranean restaurant daily. I loved it, and prior to that i only smoked weed out of those and though smoking tobacco was stupid. Not even close to the same as smoking cigs or cigars. If it's a decent hookah bar, you'll be amazed at how enjoyable a hookah can be.

The smoking was done outside though, I'm not to keen on beeing in a room filled with smoke...

P.S. Ask for five star flavor, if they got it you gotta try it.

Theres a pretty trendy restaurant / lounge right on Clark between addison and belmont by wrigleyfield. They have private sections which are draped off and it has a real 'middleeastern' feel to it. We went there for a birfday party and I had a great time. Sorry i don't remember what it was called.

There is a Hookah bar opening up near UIC on Taylor. I don't smoke Hookah myself, but I saw the sign when I was walking around campus.

Bring your credit card. This place can get expensive. There are lots of hot girls and not much competition.

There's a store called Secrets up north right off of Belmont, I want to say on Clark (not for sure). They have everything in there. I will look on their card when I get home and let you know the exact location. Some friends of mine was smoking from a hookah last time I went over there. They were smoking something that smelled like peach tea. I didn't partake but was wondering was that like a bong?

That's the place right next to Killer Margaritas. Pretty much the same but the other place i mentioned sells stuff for way cheaper, and you can bargain. Plus i believe that the other place has pieces that are double blown, whatever that means...

Not going to remain legal for long, they are trying to change that as we speak. At every "head shop" you can haggle a bit.. just try. Use the "All I got is..."
