Hookah bars are hot in Addison.

Hookah bars have been increasing in popularity all over the U.S. A hookah is a curvy water pipe used to smoke shisha, or flavored tobacco. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, Arab communities adopted the use of the hookah and “smoking became a shared activity typically enjoyed with conversation and coffee.” With flavors like tangerine dream, piña colada and guava, it’s easy to see why Americans are interested in this exotic social smoking tradition.  There are nearly 20 establishments in the Dallas area that cater to smoking flavored tobacco through a hookah, and Addison is home to three of them.

The latest hookah bar in Addison opened its doors in January. We’ll tell you about the local hookah bars and why you shouldn’t miss out on all the fun at the following establishments.

Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant and Club, 3885 Belt Line Rd.

This restaurant and club offers much more than food and a dance floor. Live, electrifying belly dance shows every weekend and a wide selection of hookah guarantee an exceptional experience. Expect an exotic ambiance with Middle Eastern-inspired décor, red walls, and soft lighting.

You can enjoy a fantastic, freshly-made Lebanese dinner, be entertained by enchanting belly dancers and try a taste of Al-Amir’s signature hookah. Tip: You might want to show up early because there is a $10 entrance fee after 9 p.m.  For more information, visit Al-Amir’s website.

Hours of Operation:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday : 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  •  Thursday – Sunday: 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Sanabels Mediterranean Grill & Hookah, 15107 Addison Rd.
This grill and hookah joint opened last year, offering another opportunity for you to savor grilled kabobs and sweet hookah. The décor is simple but comes to life with a Mediterranean touch. Expect warm lighting, tan walls with brick accents, small velvet ceiling drapes and portraits of alluring hookahs to entice you.

Sanabels features a full Mediterranean menu, exciting belly dance shows and live music on the weekends, an impressive-looking fresh fruit hookah ($25.99), and karaoke in English and Arabic on Wednesdays. This place is BYOB, so if you feel like having a glass of wine or a pint, be prepared to bring your own alcohol for a $5 fee per person.  For more information, visit Sanabels’ website.

Hours of Operation:

  • Monday – Thursday: 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.
  • Friday: 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
  • Saturday: 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.
  • Sunday: Noon to 12: a.m.

XSheesha Hookah Lounge & Grill, 3712 Belt Line Rd.

The newest addition to Addison’s hookah scene is mixing things up with events like comedy night, live singer or performer night and international DJ night. Expect a Mediterranean-inspired dark lounge set-up, complete with canopied sitting sections, club lighting and comfy, funky-colored lounge chairs.

XSheesha features a small menu offering Mediterranean staples like hummus, lamb kebab and Turkish tea. This place also boasts more than 40 exotic tobacco flavors, including melon blue, rose and royal grape. Just like Sanabels, this lounge is BYOB and allows you to bring your own beer or wine for $4.99. For more information, visit XSheesha’s website.
