"Phoenix Lounge" - I don't know why, I just like the word phoenix...
"Hookah Paradise" - If you want the word "hookah" in the name
"Golden Hookah" or "Hookapalooza" - For the tackier side
"Kookah" or "Hookahpalooka" - see above
"The Hookah Forum" - come on, you know you want to...

I think my favorite so far has been "Off the Hookah" which is in Sunnyvale, California. Definitely a great name!

It'll happen to you, too.

(10:06PM) Del_Sol- Eric, let me know if you don't like this and I will remove it.


Haven't had a chance to examine everything closely but when I pulled on out, while I'm laying in bed, I had juice on my hand so I'm gonna wait till the pops is asleep and then examine all my goodies closely.

go with "The Tea Room".it really does depend on what culture  theme you will be using(if its traditional),your decor,if its modern,and  the area.if its in lets say an arab hood  you should use a  more arabic  name to atract more customers.think about it.anyway "The Tea Room"in my opinion is an appropriate name for almost anywhere,and it kinda says something about  you.you  dont necessarily have to scream out "I SELL HOOKAHS!!!" in the name,you know?

Actually, I'm half-serious.  You're looking for a catchy, rather tacky name that breaks cliche.  So what better way to do it than fuze hookahs with life on the Delta?
I'm telling you, Xtc, you serve hookahs and put Voodoo/Mardi Gras stuff on the wall.  Play a little delta blues.  People will go to it like crawdads on an old possum. 
And if you ever need a "trademark cuisine", serve catfish--cajun style.-Kiwini

Wonderland would work even better over the hill in West Hollywood or Silverlake. Do a whole "through the looking glass" decor, and dress up as Alice...Through the Looking Glassis another suggestion. Go to Fry's for decor ideas.
