Time Out says
This one’s a favorite among Forest Hills residents for its spacious accommodations and relaxed atmosphere. Outfitted with plush booths that easily accommodate groups, Desert Rain is especially appealing in the warmer months, when a breezy back patio opens up for al fresco smoking. The lounge offers a number of fun, unusual shisha blends that are a treat when you tire of plain old peach or pineapple: Try the blackberry-laced Black Widow or minty Mojito Scandal. Stocked with games such as Uno, Connect 4 and Jenga, this Queens spot is a lovely place to waste an afternoon.
