What is a Hookah Bar?

Ali Baba House of Kabob is both a restaurant, as well as an Orlando, FL hookah bar. Hookah is a pipe used to smoke flavored tobacco (shisha). The tobacco is smoked, cooled, and filtered through a water pipe called a hookah. Originally from India, then spreading throughout the Middle East, hookah has risen in popularity in North America and Europe significantly over the last decade.

In Lebanon and other Mid-eastern Cultures the Hookah is common at social gatherings.  Hookah is one of the oldest and most deep-rooted traditions in Turkey.  Both men and women find great pleasure in smoking the water-pipe. The Hookah started a whole new culture that endured for centuries. Even today the Hookah often gives enjoyment to a special breed of smokers. The original Hookah came from India, but it was rather primitive as it was made from a coconut shell. Its popularity spread to Iran, and from there it spread to the rest of the Arab world.

At Ali Baba House of Kabob, our staff prepares only authentic Hookahs with traditional flavored tobacco.  There's nothing as refreshing as a good Hookah and a cup of Arabic coffee after a meal.
