Best Hookah Bars In Cleveland
Out and about in Cleveland, whether on a weeknight or a Saturday night, sometimes a simple dinner or the same old bar is not enough. Gather up some friends for an adventurous night out at a hookah bar and you’ll find a new pastime and perhaps learn a little about another culture you may not have otherwise experienced. And for those who already have the experience and knowledge of hookah and the accompanying culture, maybe you’ll find a new favorite.
Blue Fig Hookah Cafe
11621 Euclid Ave.
Cleveland, OH 44106
(216) 229-4747

The Blue Fig is a staple for Case Western Reserve University students, but if you haven’t frequented the area, you may not know about this one-of-a-kind location. “The fig” has a selection of traditional and modern hookah flavors, desserts and drinks to make for a relaxing and unique evening out. Low sitting tables flanked by comfortable couches and cushions really top off this lounge-like hookah bar.

City & East
2781 Euclid Heights Blvd.
Cleveland Heights, OH 44106
(216) 321-8401

City & East is a somewhat hidden hookah bar and club in Coventry, located on the second floor of the Centrum Theatre. A dimly-lit bar and dance floor sit opposite a dark and relaxing hookah bar. When a DJ plays at this club, you’ll be surrounded by dance beats and the allure of a wild night out with a hookah pipe and friends. When there isn’t a DJ, things are little bit more relaxed, with more of a lounge vibe.

Kan Zaman, otherwise recognized as a place to order some dinner or lunch, is also a really great hookah bar. With live entertainment four nights a week and what some people have named as the best hookah in town, you can’t miss out on this place.

Tomo Sushi and Hibachi
1293 W. 9th St.
Cleveland, OH 44113
(216) 696-4444

Tomo Sushi and Hibachi might not appear to be a hookah bar at first. With so much happening on the first floor, including sushi, hibachi and a large bar, some people don’t even realize that there are multiple floors with different levels of activity on each. Live entertainment, dancing and hookah all grace the multiple levels of the restaurant. Known for its flexibility in entertainment, this bar and restaurant is a great option for a large group looking for an active and exciting night out and about.
