Editorial Review of House of Hookah

If you're one to sit Indian-style, or overjoyed to go barefoot while puffing on the pipe, you'll find House of Hookah quite accommodating. The Lakeview smoke session palace features a worthy attempt at Middle Eastern aesthetics—hookah tables, plush purple carpeting and cushy futon pillows—backed by sitar-infused electronica.

The 60-flavors-strong selection goes far beyond your normal shisha (tobacco) picks at $13 a hookah (enough for three people). All your citrus fruits and berry flavors are represented, and some far sweeter oddballs are just itching to be roasted—from Skittles, cherry 7up and jell-o to blueberry ice, French vanilla latte, melons and nuts.

Smokers will delight in the try-before-you-buy principle as well as a five-minute buffer zone in which you can switch your flavor for free during your first five minutes of smoking if it doesn't suit your palate. Topped off with a BYOB policy and free wi-fi, the place offers a super cheap good time. There's also a full menu of caffeinated beverages available, including nearly as many types of tea as there are shisha flavors.

Average cost: $10-$20
