1. Re: hookah lounges

From Dcist.com today.

When the Civil Cigar Lounge opened in Friendship Heights earlier this year, the sleek and modern bar offered something that few places in D.C. can: a place to legally light up. Or so it thought.

Smokefree D.C., the advocacy group behind the passage of the 2007 law banning smoking in bars and restaurants, wrote a letter Mayor Vince Gray and the D.C. Council this week alleging that Civil and a number of other establishments in the city—primarily hookah bars—were violating the letter of the law.

According to the group, none of the establishments has been properly granted an exemption to the provisions of the law, despite possibly being eligible for one. As such, for every time someone takes in a breath of smoke at any of the offending establishments, the owner or smoker could be fined between $100 and $1,000 for a first offense.

Other than Civil, the establishments identified by the group are: Rendezvous, Bistro 18, Tangier Lounge and Hookah in Adams Morgan; Queens Café in Shaw; and Zenobia and Prince of the Harbor in Georgetown.

Gazuza Lounge in Dupont Circle is nice, they have an open air balcony that overlooks Connecticut Ave. Another place nearby is Chi-Cha Lounge, around 18th st and U st NW.

There are none? Did you read Victoria's post? Someone is trying to complain to the DC government about hookah lounges. Obviously that means there are many.

Soussi in Adams Morgan. I would recommend going up on the second floor. The rooms has a Moroccan style décor. Ozio which is close to DuPont circle has hookah on their rooftop lounge. It covers up in case it rains. Barcode lounge also has hookah, pure lounge in U street. Even though Gazuza is nice their hookah sucks. Well, im a hookah expert so it may be okay for the typical average person.

I saw a group of kids smoking from a hookah in Reston Town Center once--it took me by surprise.

Chi-Cha Lounge is okay... the few times I went they were out of the flavor combo we wanted and the kitchen was closing, so there were slim pickins.
