    Tobacco Advice

    Hey everyone, thanks for the feedback.  There is a "waiver" for hookah smoking in NYC, its not easy, but its doable.  We have over 100 hookah bars.

    Tobacco Advice

    Hey Everyone,   Thanks so much for the feedback.  I only smoke Nakhla (Mizo and OG line), so it will be at the bar.  Tangiers, I have had some issues with heat management, but i have been impressed overall.  I agree @mattarios2 we need to offer a washed line for non-smokers, that could be Starbuzz, but our bar wont be very Bro-ey and I think we could live without.  The other day, I made my own Nakhla Blue Mist with 1/3 blueberry, 1/3 orange/lemon, 1/3mint and everyone loved it.  I could stick with just Nakhla and Tangiers but I really need a good washed line.  Any ideas?   Many thanks again,   -Bashar
  3. Hey Folks,    I am currently in the pre-startup phase of opening a lounge and I plan on offering a selection of 3-4 tobacco options.  Nakhla will be available as house or "well" level hookah tabacco, but I am looking for a midrange and top shelf level.    With that being said, what are some good midrange/top shelf options to try out?  we have considered the following.   Midrange Al Fakher - Most lounges use Al Fakher, but it provides us little differentiation and well, our focus groups perfered Nak over Al Fakher. Thats all we found.     Top Shelf Tangiers - Unique product offering, if we go with tangiers, most likely going to offer Birquq line as it is easiest to manage. Starbuzz - Again, many lounges offer this, but we are not a fan, beyond blue mist. Fumari - Well we like some flavors, and may offer those as options, but not have more than 3-4 options.   Any other suggestions?  Good tobacco and a healthy distribution channel are required.   -b

  6. So I went christmas shopping in Dearborn while visiting family in Detroit. Took some pics of the hookahs... I think i got a deal... what do you guys think? KM Two-Tone Chiller $95 (came with Rainbow KM hose) "MK" Egyptian Hookah $45 (came with Rainbow KM hose) 3 Tonic Egyptian Wrapped Hoses $13 each 1 Mystique Ice Tip $14 [attachment=6101:1.jpg]
  7. Thanks everyone for your feedback. I think i may get the cheap KM from southsmoke (thanks fuckthatvincekid). There is also another vendor selling another KM for the same price I may try out. I own that MG that i got from Social Smoke, which I think owns HookahKings. I think they are the only ones that have MG's
  8. Hey Folks, I am looking to buy a decent quality Egyptian or Syrian hookah for a Christmas present for under $50. Do you have any suggestions? Is there a Christmas Gift Guide like they do for electronics (amongst other things) but for hookahs? Best under $25, $50, $75, $100, etc? Looking forward to your responses. -detroitmak

    New Hookah Found On Craigslist

    [quote name='Chreees' timestamp='1355442686' post='564934'] Sure that tray isn't upside down?? Some Syrians have tray holders like that, like the short Al Nawras brass/wooden one I have. [/quote] Not sure, thats how I got the hookah, the tray looks odd the other way around and dosnt fit as well.

    New Hookah Found On Craigslist

    Here is another deal I got just two weeks ago... Also $20, also came with a case and a pretty but horrible hose. It is a Tunisian Hookah made by Congoro. Below its pictured with a Razan hose. Whats unique about this one is how the tray sits on the hookah as seen in the pic. [attachment=6071:Tunis-Hookah.jpg]

    New Hookah Found On Craigslist

    Also the arabic says Le-al-eh which means nights. Is there a Nights hookah company in Egypt?
  13. Hey Folks, Been a while since i have been on here. Lately I have been on craigslist finding amazing deals on unique hookahs. This is my latest find. Im pretty sure its egyptian, when i got it, it was covered with calcium and lime deposits. Picture shown. I CLR'd it up and now it looks amazing! Best part of it all was that it only cost $20. (plus $7 for the CLR.) -detroitmak Before [attachment=6068:old hookah.jpg] After [attachment=6069:Bashar-Craigslist-Hookah.jpg] It also came with this odd piece that i am unsure of. Anyone know what this is for? [attachment=6070:Weird-peice.jpg]

    No Date On Al Fakher Package

    Could the AM 2G0920310 F Stand for something. Maybe the 03/10 stands for March 2010. (Manufacture Date) Just a guess.
