Harlem Hookah was first thought of in 2014 with the objective to fill a void by merging all that the area was missing into one venue- authentic hookahs
straight from Africa, premium cocktail offerings, tasty bites, and an environment that is bright, upscale, and modern. Harlem Hookah opened in September
of 2016 and since, it has grown to great popularity in the Harlem area and the surrounding communities. Visited by over 3000 visitors per month, Harlem
Hookah is the only one of its type in Manhattan, with luxe decor, modern chic ambiance, lively energy, and a custom array of shisha and spirits to make
every guest feel embraced. Harlem Hookah is a proud woman owned and black owned business.

Thanks! We love them too. The TVs are great. We designed them so that if you are watching a game you don’t have to miss that final
touchdown just cause you need to go drain the main vain. But please be mindful, that more often than not, there are others waiting
outside who need to visit the bathroom too. So while sitting in the bathroom to watch TV or take a million selfies may seem cool, it
isn’t when you are on the other side of that door. Do your business, wash your hands, snap a quick selfie, and bounce!

rules still apply.
