Loads of Lebanese and Iraqis in Australia.

Surely there must be someone.

Worse comes to worse, you could always order a shisha online.

I'm not surprised, with an attitude like "6 foot 8 white guys doing it". :roll:

Depends tho. one night at my cafe`,which is a pretty classy joint, this group of guys came in drunk and started having 'who can take the longest drag' competitions. Suffice to say that they were ruining everyones atmosphere

Now I'm not saying thats the case with you but sometimes what looks like discrimination in a hookah cafe` is people being harassed because of their lack of respect for the concept.

I am also from Melbourne smile.gif

Cafe Coco is not too bad, Abu Ziad makes an excellent Argileh.

There also is Sahara Nights on Lygon St (not far from the corner of Lygon and Brunswich Streets) it is a few shops away from Rumi's Middle Eastern Cuisine Restaurant.

There is also Ya Leil Ya Ain also known as Milan's but last I heard that shut down (was also on Lygon St above Milan Cafe).


Sydney Rd Coburg also has Efem Cafe (a Turkish Narjileh Cafe), there is also one at Broadmeadows Shopping Center near the Youth Area in Broadmeadows (Turkish) and also Al-Basha Cafe (Iraqi/Lebanese) in Olsen Place Broadmeadows on Widford St, Broadmeadows.

Here is another that I only recently found that I have been looking for a while for.

Alumbra

With its ornate carvings, designs and the gentle smell of incense, Alumbra has a distinctive Middle Eastern look and feel. Its Balinese and Moroccan inspired features including sheesha water pipes with flavoured tobacco, are all housed in a historic 1882 wharf shed making it Melbourne's most alluring waterfront cocktail bar.

Hi,
I'm not from Melbourne, but I would suggest taking a trip down to Sydney rd. and checking out the Middle Eastern grocery stores there. They should have what you're looking for.

Hello Rob,

I highly recommend Café Coco. Charges: $10 per session

573 North Sydney Rd, Brunswick, VIC, Tel: +61 3 9387 6322

Lisa,

Try Café Coco. They have everything you'll need. If they are don't have what you're looking for, try the Lebanese store a couple of doors down.
