When his popular hookah lounge on Orchard Street grew too crowded, owner Mark Osborne found a bigger room: a cavernous, sprawling space on Chrystie Street. Moorish arches, Moroccan tile work and a sunken lounge provide the right ambience for sipping exotic cocktails—like the namesake martini made with citrus vodka, OJ and pomegranate molasses—or puffing on a hookah filled with one of 12 fruity tobaccos.
