Puff The Night Away At These 19 Hookah Spots In Delhi

Editors posted on 18 October

Shout-out to all the smoky Joes out there. Our town is flush with lounges, bars, and cafes that serve some of the smoothest and most flavourful hookahs. Famous, undiscovered, or new, here are the best places to go for a satisfying sheesha sesh in Delhi.

Mocha Arthouse

Makers of the average young-adult hookah experience, Mocha brings you the next step in their attempt to revolutionise the way Delhi does hookah. Arthouse offers Mocha’s usual perks, now with a side of art. They’re offering a variety of water, juice and alcohol bases, and their house specials include Marrakesh and Cloud 9.

Lounges

167, Ground Floor, DLF Promenade Mall, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi

Glued

Steering slightly from the usual giant TV screen and hookah template, Glued offers up a whole gaming centre {overkill? We think not}. They’re happy to customise flavours for you, so ask them to mix you the most audacious concoction and they’ll be happy to oblige. Also, they’re open till 2am, so you can probably take to the sheesha post dinner.
