While cigarette smokers are forced to light up outside, water-pipe devotees can puff all they want at this hookah lounge in Gravesend, Brooklyn. Named after a swanky beach in Egypt, the 90-seat haven resembles a well-decorated desert encampment, covered with ornate carpets and flowing canopies. Tobacco tokers can savor 40 flavors, such as apple, strawberry, lemon, pineapple and even cola, as they sit at a table or on a floor pillow. Thickly brewed Turkish coffee, espresso and cappuccino provide a caffeine buzz. And If that doesn’t get your heart racing, the weekend belly dancers will.
