New York's strict smoking laws are the best things that ever happened to this hookah bar and refuge for cigarette addicts. Here, smokers gleefully inhale their clouds of nicotine and sip from an international selection of bottled beer, including a few tasty options from our wintry friends in Canada. The downstairs dance lounge picks up around midnight (usually at the exact moment the DJ kicks in with the Black Eyed Peas) and drinks are poured generously and cheaply all night.
