The history of hookah dates back as early as the 1500s, when, ironically enough, a physician in India invented this flavorful water pipe. He believed that by allowing the smoke to pass through water, the inhaled fumes would be purified. Putting aside the questionable veracity of this conviction, hookah is a widespread social activity to this day – taken to a whole new level thanks to Pasha Lounge. Named after the owner’s bulldog, Pasha is a fresh, whimsically designed hookah, beer and wine lounge. Designed by Davis Krumins, Pasha is like slinking into a quirky dream where ceilings are covered in bright and dazzling lanterns, people sink into swanky seating and “O” rings waft in the air. Choose from a variety of hookah flavors, relax and let your senses play. Pass the pipe.
