you can smoke here! the chalkboard screams, and it doesn’t mean just hookahs. That’s right. You can savor a Black & Mild with your Black Cat (Absolut, Kahlua and crème de cacao). But wait, there’s more: an intriguing mix of bar snacks (tikka masala, panini, potpies); deep house and hip-hop in the revamped downstairs lounge; and cozy, secluded booths. You’ll delight in seeing those relics of a bygone era ashtrays littering the bar. And you won’t be alone. Everyone from NYU kids to retirees regards this bar as a refuge from the Bloomberg-era blues.

Nice lowkey hookah lounge and bar located in the Lower East Side. I come here from time to time with friends who are just looking to get a drink and smoke some hookah. This area has quite a few spots for hookah, but the environment here is comfy and cozy. The drinks are well priced and the staff is amazing. I really recommend this spot if your in this area.
