    Wednesday night is ladies night, 50% off all cocktails, beers and wines. The bartenders know what they are doing, we loved the jalapeño marg, red wine sangria and the camel drink.

    Watermelon/mint hookah and Moroccan tea. Great night atmosphere, lit by candles with Arabic rhythms. Very good service.

    This is maybe the classiest hookah place in NYC ! The staff are more than just warm .. Their playlist is mostly Moroccan, it would be great if they add Khaleeji music ..

    Love this place! Bartender makes super strong drinks and food is amazing! Try the chicken cigars free on check-in! And go for the Moroccan Punch- delish! :)

    The vibes here are awesome! Very welcoming staff. Hookah is not the best! But I'll still go there any way.

    Great service, although the music is incredibly loud. Very much a romantic ambiance if you can look past your vibrating ear drums.

    The music is quite loud but really sets the stage for an synthetic hookah bar. The food isn't great but the drinks are usually strong.

    Drinks are good, though slightly pricey. Also, apparently belly-dancing is a thing here. Didn't know that until deafening music was playing at the bar.

    Do their newbie special! The cigars (which are actually spring rolls) are delicious!

    A rip off place. Charged us $50 for hookah when the price is not even listed on the menu. The manager trying to be a smart ass. Service and food not that good and hookah took more than 30 mins

    I know it's midtown, but the hookah was really too expensive and the service was inconsistent for what they think they're worth. You're better off heading to LES or a place uptown.

    I never had a bad experience before like this. Frozen salmon, chops like gum, very bad sound system, amazingly bad customer service..
