Hookah is all about embracing a slower pace of life. When seated in front of a shisha, one is committed to doing nothing, at least for a little while. The street cafes of Cairo hum with groups of friends exercising this ethos, taking turns inhaling sweet, fragrant smoke and sipping tea. Despite Pittsburgh’s distance from the Sahara, KOAL Hookah Lounge brings a bit of that mentality to Slippery Rock.

After boiling tobacco leaves with one of 21 fruit varietals, the staff at KOAL pack ornate water pipes for parties of three or five. Though most menu flavors reflect long-established tradition, the lounge experiments with unconventional blends such as the Vanilla Sky, a mixture of vanilla and blackberry tobacco. The modern décor further illustrates this embrace of old and new, with track lighting illuminating a bottle-lined wall, and bold reds encapsulating a row of sleek black stools. Guests can dramatically exhale on the outdoor patio, as well, as they savor hot chocolate and fervently detail the interesting dream they had last night.

Vermont Tavern silences boisterous stomachs with platters laden with hearty pub grub. Lubricate rusty jaw hinges with starters such as sausage-stuffed poblano peppers, a gardeny basket filled with mildly spiced italian sausage and topped with homemade marinara and shredded parmesan cheese ($8.50). Main events such as the Ox Roast sandwich, a kaiser roll loaded with slow-roasted beef ($7.95), satisfy meaty cravings, and comforting helpings of V.T. mac 'n' cheese snuggle tongues in a bed of pasta, marinated chicken, and creamy sauce ($11.95). Circle-savoring patrons may sample the Margaretta Villa pizza, which tops hand-flung dough with fresh basil pesto sauce, roasted roma tomatoes, and fresh buffalo mozzarella, quenching appetites and doubling as a disk in the event of an impromptu ultimate Frisbee match ($9.95). In addition to satisfying eats, Vermont Tavern acts as a conductor for an electric atmosphere, hosting live music and energetic events.

The Boardwalk Complex is the jewel of Erie nightlife, boasting four diverse venues in one location. The laid-back Boardwalk Bar plays host to casual hangouts with dartboards, jukeboxes, and flat-screen TVs, while the luxurious Dream Ultra Lounge swanks up the evening with sleek leather sofas, a mahogany bar, and an upper-crust dress code that keeps sandal-wearing gladiators in the arena where they belong. The Dream Nightclub proffers state-of-the-art dance space with a luminous bar, kaleidoscopic light show, and scorching music video projections. Venerate the sun gods of summer as you bask in the tiki torch glow of Coconut Joe’s outdoor deck and chow down on goodies from the grill.
