A hookah bar opened earlier this month at 1011 S. 11th St., just up the block from Le Viet.
New Dehli Hookah Lounge’s website promises it will satisfy you more than any other game in town: “Our flavors are specially selected to enhance the taste of hookah and to increase the density of smoke,” they say. “New Delhi Hookah lounge only use 100% coconut charcoal to maximize the time of hookah.”
Well, that’s nice, but what else do they sell? Can’t really tell. It’s BYOB, which sounds good to us. But the menu online only lists dozens of tobacco flavors, including pineapple, watermelon, green apple, plus even more exotic options like Queen of Sex, Apple Martini, Safari melon dew and Sex on Beach.
Can you really sustain a business on flavored tobacco alone? We reached out to the owners and will update when we hear back. No matter what, this place replaced a chiropractic office called Accident & Injury Depot Inc., so at least it’s more exciting.
Hours listed online are 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., seven days a week. A quick call after midnight last week just rang and rang, though.
Has anyone been inside? We’d love to get a report of what the place is all about.
