Unlike some of the other major Australian cities that are spoilt for choice when it comes to hookah lounges, Perth shisha bars are few and far between. But the shisha lounges that do exist are pretty impressive, so we're here to give you our recommendations if you and your friends are looking to share a hookah pipe around Perth.
Perth Hookah Lounge - East Victoria Park
True to its name, Perth Hookah Lounge is a hookah lounge in Perth, but it offers so much more than just top-quality shisha tobacco. Situated near the junction of Albany Highway, Shepperton Road, and Welshpool Road, Perth Hookah Lounge serves up a range of kebabs, pizzas, burgers, gozleme, and pide to whet your appetite. Perth Hookah Lounge sports a modern fitout, with red & white cushioned wicker seating, multiple big screen TVs, and an outdoor alfresco area equipped with gas heaters. Plus if you come on a Friday night you'll be treated to some fantastic belly dancing! The shisha menu is extensive, with over 30 shisha tobacco flavours, and 15 herbal shisha teabacco flavours to choose from. If that's not enough you can add a fruit head or ice filtration hose attachment to your order. Open midday – 2 AM Sunday – Thursday, and midday – 3 AM Friday and Saturday. 363 Shepperton Road, East Victoria Park WA 6101.
Shisha Nights - West Perth
With a more traditional Middle Eastern decor and menu to match, Shisha Nights in West Perth is a great choice for a sit-down dinner before enjoying a shisha pipe over a few alcoholic drinks. Offering live music, belly dancing, TVs, and an outdoor area, there's plenty to keep you entertained throughout the night until the early hours of the morning (5 AM on Saturdays!). If you're planning a night out in advance you can book a private VIP room to enjoy your shisha, or even a karaoke room if you're feeling a bit more boisterous. There's a fine selection of shisha tobacco flavours to enjoy, so if you're in the area be sure to check out Shisha Nights; you won't be disappointed. Open 5 PM – midnight Sunday – Thursday, 4 PM – 3 AM Friday, and 4 PM – 5 AM Saturday. 80 Outram Street, West Perth WA 6005.
Flying Monkeys Restaurant & Shisha Lounge (previously Fast Eddy's) is the only Perth restaurant open over 12 hours a day every day of the week. The food menu is massive, catering for breakfast through to dinner and dessert with both modern and traditional dishes. Whether you're after a quick snack or a full meal, the restaurant has you and your guests sorted. Flying Monkeys Restaurant & Shisha Lounge is fully licensed, with a nice range of wines, beers, and spirits to enjoy with your meal or shisha. Speaking of shisha, there's plenty of tobacco flavours to choose from and optional fruit heads as an extra. If that's not enough entertainment, be sure to visit on a Saturday night for some belly dancing and live DJ. Open 11 AM – midnight Monday – Thursday, 11 AM – 2 AM Friday, 8:30 AM – 2 AM Saturday, and 8:30 AM – midnight Sunday. 266 Walter Road West, Morley WA 6062.
Cedar Cafe - Cannington
Although the name would suggest that this is a cafe, Cedar Cafe is more like a restaurant, but styled like a traditional US diner (minus the booths). Serving Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine from late morning to night, Cedar Cafe is well known for its great food at affordable prices. Accessibility is a breeze, with plenty of parking spots available and being conveniently located opposite Queens Park Station. Most importantly, you can enjoy smoking shisha in the comfortable outdoor garden, all while experiencing one of Cedar Cafe's delicious milkshakes, mocktails, and frappes. Open 9 AM – 1 AM Sunday – Thursday, and 9 AM – 2 AM Friday and Saturday. 197 Sevenoaks Street, Cannington WA 6107.
