Hookahs are designed with hanging out in mind: the slowly-burning patty encourages users to sit and chat for a while as they draw slow breaths. Wicked Mirage's comfortable atmosphere, therefore, is the perfect complement to its ornate water pipes. With weekly poetry readings and frequent game-watching sessions, the lounge's calendar seems to have something for everyone?though many just opt for a simple night with friends or a complicated night with enemies. When it's time to inhale, patrons consult a 70-flavor shisha menu. Its varieties include classic smoke flavors, like jasmine and lemon-mint, as well as more inventive blends, like Wicked Candy's sorbet melon and "Pirate's Cove."
Fragrant smoke flows through hoses as customers relax on cushy sofas and armchairs inside Voodoo Hookah Lounge. Staff members refresh the hookahs' glowing charcoals and fill hookahs from their stock of 40 flavors of fresh shisha—including such popular offerings as lemon mint, double apple, and spiced chai—for patrons to puff or mix and match into custom blends. Patrons can also shop for at-home smoking supplies—including shisha, hookahs, and e-hookahs—or they can purchase energy drinks, Coca-Cola products, and snacks to enjoy as they lounge.

Staff remains on duty at all times, and extended weeknight and weekend hours cater to owners with busy schedules.
