(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) "The hookah lounge (also called a shisha bar or den, or a hookah bar) is an establishment where patrons share shisha (flavored tobacco) from a communal hookah which is placed at each table. Hookah lounges are mostly found in college towns and urban areas and are regarded by some as a novel and chic way to socialize and embrace multiculturalism. Some people of Middle Eastern or South Asian extraction consider them a continuation of their own cultural traditions. Over the recent years hookah in general has become increasingly popular for the young-adults; those who are just at the legal age to smoke in their state. It is not uncommon now to find hookah bars within short distance of college campuses and in the surrounding towns. This younger generation has revitalized the hookah market; hookah bars are successful and remain open despite indoor smoking bans. According to a 2011 study, 40.3 percent of college and university students surveyed had smoked tobacco from a hookah."

The Origin of the hookah is from India, Persia, or at a transition point between the two. In the Arab world, people smoke it as part of their culture and traditions. Social smoking is done with a single or double hose hookah, and sometimes even triple or quadruple hose hookahs are used. When the smoker is finished, either the hose is placed back on the table signifying that it is available, or it is handed from one user to the next, folded back on itself so that the mouthpiece is not pointing at the recipient.
