Best Sydney shisha bars and hookah lounges

A couple of months ago we revealed the best Melbourne shisha bars and hookah lounges. Due to popular demand, we're travelling a little further north to uncover the hidden delights of the Sydney shisha scene. Shisha is incredibly popular in Sydney, so it wasn't easy deciding on our favourite hookah bars, hookah lounges, and hookah cafes. We've managed to narrow our list down to five, so here are our recommendations for the best shisha bars and hookah lounges Sydney has to offer.

BMCP - Parramatta

BMCP stands for Blue Mist Cafe Parramatta, which is a fitting name for this dark shisha lounge filled with bright neon lights and plumes of flavoured argileh smoke. Grab yourself a table inside, or opt for a street-side booth and enjoy the Church Street nightlife over a bowl of shisha tobacco. Speaking of which, BMCP has a great range of shisha flavours, so don't be scared to try something new. BMCP pays homage to the legends of Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B – both new and old – with an amazing floor to ceiling mural, and non-stop beats. Open 7:30 PM – midnight Sunday – Thursday, and 7:30 PM – 1 AM Friday and Saturday. 329 Church Street, Parramatta NSW 2150.

The Spot Chocolate Bar - Liverpool

If you're in Liverpool and in need of a good feed, make sure you check out The Spot Chocolate Bar. Not only does it have a huge menu, but as the name suggests, desserts and anything to do with chocolate are its specialties. Whether you're hungry or not, The Spot Chocolate Bar has a nice selection of shisha flavours, and cool extras such as pineapple heads, ice tips, and ice buckets. Open 5 PM – 11:30 PM Monday – Thursday, and midday to midnight Friday – Sunday. 333A Macquarie Street, Liverpool NSW 2170.

Kazbah - Darling Harbour

With spectacular 180-degree views of Darling Harbour, Kazbah provides a stunning location to enjoy a bowl of shisha or two. Kazbah has a large assortment of shisha flavours, offering both shisha tobacco and herbal shisha for those not too keen on nicotine. Take in the harbourside atmosphere from Kazbar's outdoor terrace, where you can feast on authentic Moroccan dishes in an alfresco setting. Open 11 AM – 10 PM seven days a week. 10 Darling Drive, Sydney NSW 2000.

El Sweetie - Granville

Get your sweet tooth fix at El Sweetie! Boasting a wide variety of Lebanese sweets, French pastries, gourmet sandwiches, and Lebanese food snacks, make sure you arrive with an empty stomach to avoid FOMO. El Sweetie Cafe and Sweet Saloon has a more family-friendly vibe in which to enjoy some Hubbly Bubbly, and is a great spot for an afternoon session with coffee. Open 8 AM – 11 PM Monday – Wednesday, 8 AM – midnight Thursday, 8 AM – 1 AM Friday and Saturday, and 8 AM – 12:30 AM Sunday. 73/75 South Street, Granville NSW 2142.

Titanic Cafe - Bankstown

Titanic Cafe is more of a family restaurant than a cafe, serving Middle-Eastern and Italian dishes including amazing pizzas from its massive wood-fire clay oven. Titanic Cafe has a good variety of shisha flavours, and offers fruit heads and ice as extras. Leave some room for dessert, as Titanic Cafe has some beautiful cakes to indulge on. Open 11 AM – midnight Sunday – Thursday, and 11 AM – 1 AM Friday and Saturday. 49 Raymond Street, Bankstown NSW 2200.
