partyyy! – On friday and saturday nights this is the best place to hang out! They have great hip hop music, and if you're in the mood for a good time this is the place to be. You can either lounge around on couches and smoke hookah or you can get up and dance! It's a really fun place to be! I stopped going for a couple months and I came back and they were closed. The sign was still up and everything but some guy said they closed it. Does anybody know if it opened back up? I wanna go back there and party! It was definitely a great past time of mine. Every friday my friends and I would go to the hookah bar and it was just a lot of fun. I'm seriousss.
fav hangout – i love this place! i always end up hangin out with cool people. so much fun everytime i go. fun music and good hookah!
high school kids hangout – we went to hookah bar on saturday night expecting to spend a relaxing few hours smoking hookahs, drinking wine and listening to middle eastern music. Instead, what we got was a dive filled with adolescents, grinding to hip-hop and latino music. Certainly not my idea of a hookah bar- the saving grace is the decent quality of the hookahs. I don't know how the place is on other days but certainly not recommended on saturday night.
Great Place! Please give it a chance! – I just went to this place for the first time recently. It was actually a great place. Sure, it isn't an up-scale fancy place, but it's very relaxed.
Another reveiw said that is place is "over priced" when that is not true. It was only 10 dollars for the hookah, and 2 dollars per refil. They are happy to come change your coals and make sure you get your monies worth, too! They are quick to serve and it is honestly a nice place to just sit down on the couch, and relax. No one in the place judges you or watches you like a hawk. The workers move around just like any customer, and trust you with the merchandise.
Wednesday Night was almost empty . . .good music and nice black lights. The bathrooms are also just as nice as any other bathroom you will find in downtown Houston.
the management is great. i've never been waited on anywhere like i am in there, very generous and friendly. the have the best flavors of shisha
Awful – I don't know WHAT that reviewer was talking about; the Hookah Bar is the most over-priced, disgusting dive in all of Houston. The bathrooms are atrocious, the "hookah" is sub-par and VERY expensive, and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a high school hang out. Avoid at all costs.
A Middle Eastern tradition takes root on the Richmond Strip right next to an oxygenated oasis. – The Scene
Arabic entrepreneur Ayman Jarra transformed a nondescript office space into side-by-side clubs. Hookah is his interpretation of the Egyptian sheesha, while Oxygen is a cozy space with blue and pink neon cannulas (oxygen tubes). The former features 40 hookahs, an antique Maynard piano and big-screen TV. The latter features wall topiaries, abstract paintings and trance music to complement eight aroma-infuser stations ($10 for a 25-minute session).
A hookah is packed with tobacco and a fruit like a lemon is wrapped in foil, then hot coals are placed on top of the lemon. When you inhale, the smoke is pulled through a water chamber connected to a long tube, past the lemon and hot coals and into your lungs ($5.99 for the first fruit, $3 for refills). Oxygen's air is, not surprisingly, mostly oxygen. The other 5-percent is comprised of aromatherapy solutions like Sublime (lime juice concentrate) and Clarity (eucalyptus and ginkgo) which are mixed with the odorless gas to purify and invigorate.
