This is a nice place. I've been there several times and always come out satisfied. The hookah's are really nice, with different flavors. The waiters are always on point with their recommendations of selections of shishi flavors. The drinks and food are nice too!

Went there for a speed dating event. The drinks were good and seemed reasonably priced. It has a fun bohemian decor. It's primarily a hookah bar. It gets very loud so as it got later in the evening I found myself having to yell in order to have a conversation with people.

Good Hookah's and nice music, but the service Sucks! I had a birthday celebration there and our waitress was horrible. There was a young lady that did try to defuse the situation and she did a great job at doing so. I wish I would have gotten her name.
