Before hookahs, the only way to breathe in smoke that tasted like fruit was by stuffing a vehicle's exhaust pipe with apples or committing arson on Carmen Miranda's head. Participate in a safer way to puff with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks plus half off hookah at The Waterfall on West 2nd Street.
Succulent suds cascade from the taps and sinewy smoke bellows into the mood-lit recesses of The Waterfall’s full bar and hookah lounge. Dampen your downspout with any of 24 available beers on tap before heading over to the hookah lounge to inhale the rich temperaments of velvety smooth shisha. The Waterfall procures an eclectic variety of specialty hookah flavors such as the creamy chai thai, the cherrylicious Dirty Shirley, and the harvest apple-steeped Snow White’s Nightmare ($12 first bowl, $9 refills). Otherwise, mix and match up to five standard flavors such as chocolate mint, pina colada, pomegranate, irish cream, and banana for a blend that mirrors your soul-smoke. Between each plume of fruity fumes, you and your cohorts can settle age-old disputes about which of you are dreaming the others with a few leisurely rounds of billiards and darts.
Yelpers give The Waterfall an average of 4.5 stars:
- This place was, hands down, the favorite between my friends and I of all the places we visited while in Reno for a few short days. – Linda M., Yelp, 10/07/2010

Despite its name, The Waterfall is no ordinary watering hole. Couches dot the interior of the laid-back bar, inviting patrons to lounge while downing pints chosen from 24 draft beers or admiring pieces by local artists. In the back, hookahs puff out fragrant smoke, adding an air of mystery to good-natured games of beer pong, pool, shuffle board, and steel-tip darts. The bar stays traditional where it counts, though—its liquor shelves only house top-brand vodkas, whiskeys, and bourbons, and its selection of beers draws brews from both big-name producers and innovative craft breweries. Flat-screen televisions situated above the bar also err on the side of familiarity, broadcasting television favorites such as South Park and games from around the sporting world. Located in The Riverwalk District, The Waterfall also plays host to the Reno Beer Crawl on the fourth Saturday of every month—bringing out drink specials and maps for the tour’s raucous groups of wanderers—and offers glasses for the Riverwalk Merchant Association's Wine Walk on the third Saturday of every month.
