defence in lahore had banned shisha, so you will only get the places in gulberg.

theres one really good one on main boulevard in the park next to mcdonalds and subway.
all the goods ones were in defence and have closed down.

there is also an indulge on mm alam road under kfc in its basement, its a good place with good shisha but expensive.

Some recent findings suggest that sheesha leads straight to cancer and is more dangerous than cigarettes etc. This is what my sister (who is a doctor) told me.
They have started to ban sheesha in Pakistan. But it is still available at many places.

it was banned because of drug mixing in the flavours, not because of danger effects of it.

absolutely...i have heard that too..

yet most muslim countries allow sheesha smoking!!! surely this would be haraam in islam?

alcohol is haraam and i can see that intoxicating yourself can do harm to you and to others...

smoking, whether it is sheesha or ciggys, will lead to health trouble and inevitable death and not only is it dangerous to the user but also those who are nearby and hence become passive smokers!

a bit of hyprocracy there..scrap that, a lot of hyprocacy there...

anyway, coming back to the sheesha, hear there are some decent places in karachi...sitting here in london there are plenty of places now and not just on edgware road...but nothing like a sheesha at home, in the garden, in the evening when the weather is sultry...mint or mixed fruit flavour with some nice black moroccon or iranian chai...

nah.. They were thinking of banning it after the results of this research came out..and then, once this drug mixing issue came, they HAD to take action. So they banned it. But it still is available.

U can now get flavours with no tobacco and no nicotine which are much healthier so they dont cause much harm and they taste as good as the other flavours!!

Al-Nakhal is nice and economical... you just have to buy something else.. I normally go with a cup of tea or cofee.

Sheikhoo are also not bad. economical.

My younger brother was telling me a place in johar town. as per him, they have the best sheesha he ever had. Will let you know once i ask him again.

Oh acha I see what you mean.

Waisay it's pretty remarkable all the choices there are now.

10 years ago the only place I could have a hookah was the chowkidar's gate outside our school!
