691 posts in this topic
hey guys, noticed several of you in the NOVA area, so i want to get together sometime soon and throw down hookah forum style. tongue.gif as for a cafe im not sure, still looking for one i really like up here, but i am more than willing to offer up my apt for a get-together. its not huge but i can fit about 7 on my couch and a few more just lounging around.

ive also got a 1,2, and 3 hose plus the smiley hookah so everyone shouldnt need to bring their hardware, only the drinks and like a bit of their favorite shesh. let me know if anyone is interested.. Edited by ghostofdavid

I'd be interested in a DC-area meet-up. I can recommend a few shisha places around here. My favorite is Lebnan Zaman in the Tysons area of VA. Consistently good shisha and great food. There are also a cluster of shisha cafes in the Skyline area of VA - Prince, Oasis, Aladdin. Some in downtown DC as well. They all have their pros and cons and cater to different clientele. I can also recommend some Arabic importing stores in the area where you can buy hookah supplies if you're interested. Keep me posted.

We need to actually do this. Been a DC thread before and don't think they met up either.

I know a couple of places around the DC area.

Alf Laylah. This restaurant, whose name translates to "thousand nights," opened in Chantilly nine months ago. Palestinian-born owner Sam Ayesh has created a cozy space that includes a small dance floor, traditional floor seating with pillows and a mural of a village scene by a local Egyptian artist. On weekdays, it's packed with regulars playing backgammon and cards; on weekends, there's belly dancing and live jazz. Fifteen flavors of tobacco ($9 each) are offered, including apricot, mango and mint. 13975 Metrotech Dr., Chantilly. 703-378-6677.

Chi Cha Lounge. Hookahs aren't the exclusive provenance of Middle Eastern restaurants. Case in point? Chi-Cha, owned by Ecuadorian Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld and named for a drink consumed by the Incas. The swanky spot offers a full tapas menu, plus hookah pipes ($20 each); flavors include grape, strawberry and orange. Live Brazilian, Latin, Moroccan and Flamenco music will have you tapping your feet, while ornate beaded chandeliers and tiny candles make the space as fashionable as it is comfortable. 1624 U St. NW. 202-234-8400.

Lebnan Zaman. This spot offers Lebanese-style fast food and hookahs ($8.95 each) in the evenings. That's proven to be a winning combination for its bevy of regulars -- men and women of mostly-Middle Eastern descent -- who congregate on the outside patio to chat or inside to surf the Web over plates of falafel and chicken shwarma. 8411 Old Courthouse Rd., Vienna. 703-748-1400.

Prince Cafe. This local restaurant chain serves up Middle Eastern, Indian and Pakistani dishes to a trendy crowd (if you're not wearing designer denim, you may feel out of place). All the locations remain open until 4 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and until 6 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. More than twenty flavors of tobacco are offered, ranging from cappuccino to peach ($8.95 each). The Prince Palace (part of the cafe at the Wisconsin Avenue address) also has belly dancing nightly during dinner and a late-night show with live music on Fridays and Saturdays. 3205 Prospect St. NW, 202-625-6400; 1042 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202-333-1500; 4629 41st St. NW, 202-362-0080; 8145-A Baltimore Ave., College Park, 301-513-0800; 3821-D S. George Mason Dr., Falls Church, 703-931-8200.

There are also a whole bunch in Alexandria.

Where? I've been trying to find some stores that sell different brands. I only know one store on Wisconsin Avenue in DC which only sells Naklha but their prices are pretty good (only 5-6 bucks) per 250gm.

I agree, and would love to meet up. Espeically after I hear about scalli had a get together at his house, that looked like fun its too bad I live so far from texas lol cause I would have liked to come. We should definetely do this, another hookah bar we could go to is merrifield kabab in fairfax off lee hwy, they're really great.

As an Arlington resident, I would be down for a meet up.

Chi-Cha lounge is definitely nice and swank, but their hookah can be expensive.

There's a strip in Falls Church with several hookah bars. Pretty cheap there, but parking is a pain. And one of the places (I can't remember which) had the worst hookah I ever have tasted. Their mint reminded me of sleeping gas.
