Hookah lovers are like no one else. Those who have a passionate bond with hookah do not want to change tobacco and lance, let alone changing places. There are many places where you can smoke hookah in Istanbul, but it is not easy to find the best ones. We have listed 5 hookah shops in Istanbul, some cheap, some expensive, some comfortable and some authentic.
Erenler Hookah / Çorlulu Ali Pasha Madrasa, Fatih
Erenler Hookah is one of the important addresses for those who care about tobacco rather than comfort. It is possible to see all kinds of people in this place, which is inside the Çorlulu Ali Paşa Madrasa in Beyazıt. Hookah is not the only famous product of Erenler Hookah. While you are here, it is a must to drink Turkish coffee and apple tea.
Rembetiko Cafe / Moda, Kadıköy
Rembetiko Cafe is one of the best places in Kadıköy, which is a bit lacking in hookah. It is possible to find very good hookahs in this small two-floor cafe, which is a bit secluded in Moda. If you care about not burning your nozzle, don’t miss out on this place.
Huqqa / Kuruçeşme, Beşiktaş
Huqqa is an unusual hookah cafe. One of the rare non-alcoholic places in Kuruçeşme, Huqqa is frequented by conservatives as well as famous names. Let’s say that those who believe that as the luxury of the place increases, the quality of the hookah will decrease, they are wrong.
Al Fakheer Shisha Lounge / Bebek, Beşiktaş
Al Fakheer is the perfect place for those who don’t care about money when it comes to hookah. Those who want both a show and a nice hookah can spend their time with pleasure in rooms with private TV.
Lö Şantiye / Balat, Fatih
Lö Şantiye, where you can smoke your hookah with a beautiful view in Balat, also satisfies its customers with its rich food menu. The biggest problem of the place seems to be the ventilation problem inside.
