Senses come alive when sitting on the plush red couches at Kasbah Hookah Lounge. The sounds of DJs spinning tracks sync with the rhythmic movements of exotically clad belly dancers roaming from table to table, weaving through clouds of aromatic hookah smoke. Customers can puff on more than 85 flavor combinations of the house’s 24 Starbuzz shishas, including classic options such as mango, or pairings such as honey, vanilla, and mint. The house also crafts their own signature blends for the five VIP flavors, including cinnamon toast crunch, which pairs apple, cinnamon, and banana. Bottles of wine and pints of beer accompany hookahs on the table, providing all of the fillers for a comfortable night out without having to lug around childhood teddy bears.
The dramatically draped ceilings inside Zacharys glow with blue, green, and pink lights, adding luxe atmosphere to the nightclub's popular Saturday night dance party. The dance floor thumps as special guest DJs spin a mix of current dance hits and classics, which pulsate from a state-of-the-art sound system while a light show on the dance floor dazzles eyes. In between songs, partygoers can hit the bar for a top-shelf cocktail or order bottle service complete with mix-ins and garnishes.?The energetic atmosphere promises to make everything from a night out with friends to a birthday party memorable.
In an effort to help recapture the elegant feel of nightclubs from the past, Zacharys has an upscale dress code; men are encouraged to wear collared shirts and shoes, and fill one pocket with a tiny emergency bowtie.
Executive Chef Dana Oddo draws from culinary skills cultivated from his time in the Memphis barbecue scene at Fuego Picante, where she fuses modern Mexican food with smokehouse barbecue fare. The restaurant's decor mirrors this savory synthesis, playfully blending sophisticated light fixtures and streamlined furnishings with whimsical flourishes, such as a mural of a cowboy. This serves as the perfect setting for Chef Oddos' warm and contemporary fare: tamales, chicken taquitos, and shrimp Creole all share menu space with mojitos that are freshly squeezed from the fruit of the 80-proof-rum tree.
