Hookahs are native to warmer lands, but hookah dens bring their sensual winding smoke to northern climes. Hookah bars in Berlin, sometimes referred to as shisha cafés, let club-goers and arty types lounge on plush cushions and pass around the hookah.
Berlin hookah bars often serve Middle Eastern food as well. One such place, Alarabi, offers lamb and other kebab dishes to accompany a vast menu of tobacco varieties. During happy hour, laid-back crowds relax in corners piled with pillows and on a communal bed. After dinner, Alarabi becomes a trendy, relaxing lounge where hip young Berliners gather to drink and smoke before hitting the nearby late-night hotspots.
Late-night hookah bars such as Marrakesch and Shahrazad give club-hoppers a refueling option devoid of junk food and bright lights. Lazing about on intricate fabrics in moody lighting mellows out supercharged nights out. Unlike some Middle Eastern restaurants, these hookah bars also have cocktails, for those who want to give their smoking a bit of a kick. These laid-back, sexy spots give Berliners a chance to escape into the exotic for a nightlife respite.
