It's easy to see why Hoookahmania won Phoenix NewTimes' award for "Best Hookah Lounge" in 2012. Smoke wafts over the dimly lit lounge, carrying aromas of flavors such as tangerine, sweet melon, or chocolate. Waiters might also assemble one of their unique blends, including Mijana Lover: a mix of orange, strawberry, safari melon, and pineapple. Hoookahmania also serves the perfect complement to these hookah creations—plates of shawarma, hummus and other Middle Eastern entrees.
Conversations flow just as easily as the hookah smoke, thanks to the lounge's comfy armchairs and round tables. Visitors might play cards or dance to Arabic pop music from the in-house DJ Wednesday–Sunday or watch performances from skilled belly dancers on Friday and Saturday nights.
