I'm kinda disappointed Guess doesn't have their lounge anymore. They moved to Lincoln Park and now they're only a tobacco and sheesha store.

I live in the south burbs during the summer but I'm in the city a lot. I like Arabia Hookah and Noon Hookah the best. Guess hookah has a nice shisha selection and the people there are cool but the place smells like piss...


Noon is a really good place. I live a couple blocks from it. The guys who run it are really nice, it's pretty cheap compared to other places, and guess what? They've started carrying starbuzz.. you have to ask for it though..

Also I have to say, Samah is the best lounge in chicago, hands-down. Nothing else comes close, at least from the 4-5 others I've tried.

I completly agree on that....I go to columbia in the south loop and just about every other weekend we hit up Samah(when i dont feel like smoking up all my friends), It hasn't failed us yet!

I just moved back to Oswego. The only somewhat decent lounge I've been to around here is Dhuwan but I've yet to venture into the city yet. Anything worthwhile within driving distance?

there are quite a few places in the city if your willing to drive down. Hubble, house of hookah, and Sigara to name a few. Check out www.hookahchicago.com. They list pretty much everything in the Chicago area

Best places are :

Ali Babaas
Carthage
and Lux

these places offer the best service and are the most authentic and you get what you pay for. lux also has very wide range of tobacco selection, he serves everything from nakhla to tangiers and owner is a gem

when you say lux, you are meaning lux chateau right? i cant remeber the street, but its lincoln park area busier north/south street with a subway next door? i havent been there in a while but from what i remeber, it was MYA Qts, strictly quicklights, and horrible service. id ask for a list of shisha and the guy would tell me its easier if i just pick something, so i ask what brands and he only says we have starbuzz and a bunch of others. he also has been a smartass to me a few too many times. not calling you out at all, just curious if this lounge im talking about is not the same one you were talking about or if theyve cleaned up their act.

Lux is up there but I wouldn't put Carthage and especially Ali B's in the top notch category. The owner of Ali B's has no concept of good customer service. It was decent the first year it opened but $$$ also leads to owners not giving 2 craps about the quality of hookah. Hubble, Nice Nights, Noon, and House of Hookah are probably the best places in the city in my opinion. Samah is also very inconsistent with their service and its pretty annoying when you have a person coming in your booth every 5 minutes to tell you how much time you have left.

I'm new here and I live in Franklin Park just a couple blocks from Belmont. Easy enough to get into Chicago and move around freely.

Carthage is one of my least favoret, the service sucked, the hookah was far to much money for my taste.
got to love
