Hookahs are water pipes that are used to smoke specially-made, sweetened tobacco. At hookah bars and lounges, there's usually a pretty wide variety of flavors to pick from, ranging from fruity to decadent, and even some exotic choices. Oftentimes, the tobacco is paired with flavored tea, which adds to the overall experience.

Most hookah bars around Colorado have a laid-back ambiance, with comfy pillows serving as seats.

Surprisingly, only a few hookah bars can be found around the Northern Colorado region.
