Hookah pipes are one of the only sources for flavored smoke, aside from genie lamps and burning fields of cotton candy.

At Sheesha Lounge, servers sling classic Middle Eastern eats and hookahs, artful instruments used for smoking specialty fruit- and molasses-flavored tobacco. Lounge staffers cultivate a low-lit, romantic atmosphere, perfect for intimate conversations or dramatic monologues in sotto voice. After tearing into a plate of lamb shawarma or falafel, guests can wash away their worries with Viennese roast coffee, Moroccan mint tea, or soda. For dessert, flaky slices of baklava combine sweetness and nuttiness better than the plot of a dog-based romantic comedy. Smooth, smoky hookah flavors run the gamut from traditional to innovative, with standard selections such as spearmint, latte, or double apple, or blends such as the sexy guava margarita. The smoke emporium encourages lounging, tempting guests to linger with free WiFi, so they can share smokes via video chat with friends in smoke-free bars in Atlantis.
The red-orange glow of smoldering coals only enhances the cozy, inviting vibe of Sheesha Lounge, a local hangout that recently earned a spot on CBS Boston's list of Allston’s Best Hookah Bars. It's not hard to find something to love about this place, whether it's the exposed brickwork and padded, pillow-lined banquettes or the fact that the lounge stays open as late as 2 a.m. The biggest draw, however, has to be the 35 different flavors of tobacco, which include rose, jasmine, vanilla, mint, and mountain spring water. As the fragrant, cloud-like wisps of smoke mingle in the air, guests can dine on sweet snacks that include cheesecake and baklava.
