The Top 10 Sheesha Hotspots for Sheeshaholics in Dubai, UAE

Rooftop sheesha hotspots, creekside views or in a room filled with the smell of different flavors, sheesha or hookah is a true Emirati experience and Dubai is popularly known to have a number of sheesha cafes.

Smoking sheesha is now a pastime for expats from all around the world in Dubai. Being an absolute sheesha lover or ’sheeshaholic’, sharing here are a few of my favorite sheesha spots in town. 

1. Ewaan Lounge

Our first Sheesha Hotspot is Ewaan Lounge in The Palace, Downtown Dubai. It offers an amazing mix of delicious Lebanese food, middle eastern music, drinks and sheesha, all in one place. With an amazing view of the majestic Burj Khalifa, Ewaan Lounge has one of the best sheeshas I have tried. Sit in the luxury cabanas and enjoy the moment or sit across the tables and let the stunning view mesmerize you, this place is sure to be a great sheesha experience for all.

2. Shades

Shades at the Address Hotel in Dubai Marina is the place to go to for a pleasant evening. An open-air setting, this place is the perfect option for an uber chic date night. With exclusive cabanas, an infinity pool and an unbelievable view of the skyscrapers, this is the perfect example of an ultra modern sheesha bar.

3. Shimmers

Sitting on one of the most spectacular locations in the region, Shimmers is a beach restaurant on Madinat Jumeirah, where you can enjoy the private beach with a breathtaking view of the Burj Al Arab. Sit on the bean bags by the beach, enjoying some authentic Greek food and puff on your favorite flavors of sheesha, this place has the most amazing casual yet chic atmosphere.

4. Kabana

An up class and vibrant Afghan restaurant in Jumeirah, this is indeed a little gem to go to for some delicious food and awesome sheesha. Mostly visited by the locals, well that’s what it looked like from all the times I’ve been there, this place is a must visit. A place I would definitely recommend to tourists for some great Afghan and Mediterranean food, live Arabic music and of course GREAT sheesha. The best way to actually notice this place when you drive by is noticing the array of luxury cars in the valet, this place is bustling at all times.

5. The Beach House

Going by the name, a beachside setting in Anantara, the Palm at Palm Jumeirah, this place is a definite thumbs up for a day of relaxing and unwinding. With an outstanding view of Dubai’s shores, you can sit and enjoy the gorgeous sunset with some lovely Mediterranean food complimented with great sheesha and the music played by their resident DJ. This is the place to go to for lounging with a chilled out vibe.

6. Jus T Cafe & Restaurant 

Despite all the high-end sheesha hot spots, Just tea cafeteria in good old Karama is a favorite sheesha spot for not just me, but for a lot of others. This place has one of the best sheets ever.

7. Mom’s Food

Ended up at Mom’s Food because of my undying love for Arabic food and when I learned they serve sheesha, I was sorted. This is a place where you can feel at home with amazing Lebanese food, amazing sheesha and brownie points for playing cards. Yes cards, there is nothing better than good food, even better sheesha, and some cards. Situated in Dubai Marina, this place has both indoor and outdoor seating and is a must try for an evening out with all of the above mentioned.

p.s . Their falafel is absolutely delicious, crisp, toasted and scrumptious. One of the best I have ever had.






8. Cozy Cabana

Literally one of the biggest (in area) sheesha cafes in Oud Metha, this place has a great look and feel. If you ever feel like watching a football match, eating some decent food and smoking some nice sheesha, don’t think twice, just go here. On another note, parking could be an issue, though.

9. Aroma Garden Cafe

At my very first visit here, I fell in love with it. As the name suggests this place will make you feel like you are in a garden, or forest rather with trees and plants and leaves everywhere. Located in Oud Metha, this is a calm and cozy place to visit with friends or even with family. This place has existed for 15 years and has truly outdone itself with the ambiance. A very interesting place with a quiet environment and some smooth sheesha. Highly recommended because this place is truly underrated. Great place to work and play.

10. Bosporus

Last but not the least, one of my favorite Sheesha Hotspot is Bosporus. This is a not so fancy yet fancy restaurant at Wafi Mall. Absolutely top ranking Turkish food, fantastic sheesha, great live music. What more can you ask for after a tiring day of work? They do have multiple branches so check them out to find your nearest sheesha hotspot.

This may not be an expected list of sheesha hotspots, there are a lot more, trust me on this. Nothing really beats chilling out at a nice place with some sheesha and food and this was a tough list to make because Dubai really has some great stuff to offer and there are too many great sheesha lounges to choose from.
