A hookah is a smoking device that works by means of a flexible tube connected to a container that holds water. Tobacco is placed inside another part of the hookah, and the smoke is filtered through the water before being drawn into the body, resulting in a very satisfying smoking experience.

Be aware: when you smoke a hookah, you are taking in and exhaling tobacco, so in a hookah bar you will be exposed to first- and second-hand smoke. If you're into hookah smoking, however, that's what you're looking for anyway, so here's a few hookah bars in New York City to visit.

Suave Hookah Lounge, 114 E 1st Street

Suave Hookah Lounge offers you a complete hookah smoking experience. Start your evening off with an appetizer and drink, and then order a combination platter, which is served with salad and rice for your entrée.

Afterward, treat yourself to an enjoyable smoke. There are 69 tobacco flavors to choose from, so you should be able to find one that you will like.

If you and some friends would like some privacy, you can arrange for a private party. You'll enjoy your food, drinks, and smokes with the people you really enjoy being with.

Cozy Café Hookah Lounge, 43 E 1st Street, Frnt A

You have numerous single and combination tobacco flavors to choose from; some even have a wine or champagne base. You can also choose a "Viagra special" if you desire, or ask one of the staff to "Knock me out" (that's the name of a tobacco combination.)

You can even choose from an Egyptian blend, which will further enhance the hookah-smoking atmosphere. No matter what you choose, though, you'll feel like you've wandered into a Middle Eastern hookah lounge, but you never left New York City.

Babel Hookah Lounge, 131 Avenue C (between 8th and 9th Street)

You'll probably want to "babel" to all your friends after you've experienced the Babel Hookah Lounge. That's because you're right in the heart of "Alphabet City", which is a happening place within itself, and the Babel Hookah Lounge just adds to the excitement.

You have several tobacco flavors to choose from, and you can enjoy them while sipping on a delicious drink. You don't have to worry about your budget, though, because the drink prices at Babel Hookah Lounge are very reasonable.

Fayrooz Cafe, 2808 Steinway Street, Astoria, Queens

A short trip to Queens will bring you to Fayrooz Cafe. Here you can receive a free hookah session if it's your birthday. Even if it isn't, you'll still enjoy a live DJ and belly dancing.

The hookahs contain fresh fruit, which makes for an even more satisfying smoking experience. With drinks and Middle Eastern food, you'll truly believe you've traveled to an exotic Arabian location.
