Top 5 Shisha Bars in Calgary
There’s no substitute for sitting back, relaxing and puffing on one of your favourite shisha tobacco flavours – at one of your favourite shisha bars I might add!
Shisha really is a great way to relax and enjoy an afternoon or evening with friends while chatting up a storm.
Heck, some people even go and toke on the hookah pipe by themselves as they catch up on things like their homework, favourite show or even just to browse social media.
The next time you’re in for a shisha session, or just simply want to try this chill method, be sure to check out one of our top five shisha bars in Calgary below.
- Address – 4816 Macleod Trail SW
- Phone Number – 403-454-6242
Cloud 9 is as close as it gets to being in a nightclub – but not. Inside you’ll find multi-colored hanging lamps and strobe lights as well as black lights here and there which makes for a pretty interesting shisha experience every time.
Apart from the lights, Cloud 9 has some of the best tasting shisha in town as well as private rooms available for booking just in case you’re with a larger group. This is one of my favourites on this entire list simply because it has the best tasting shisha!
La Rouge Restaurant & Lounge
- Address – 201 – 4438 Macleod Trail SW
- Phone Number – 403-214-7799
A few blocks away from Cloud 9 is another one of Calgary’s best shisha parlours called La Rouge Restaurant & Grill. Inside you’ll find a dimly lit atmosphere with a spacious seating arrangement made up of mostly half booths with a few tables in between. The shisha here I would say is the second best tasting of all on the list also.
Not too long ago this place changed its name from Babylon to La Rouge Restaurant & Grill – just in case your more experienced shisha friends still refer to it as Babylon (mine do).
Fire N Ice Bar & Shisha Lounge
- Address – 854 16th Avenue SW
- Phone Number – 403-689-2565
One cool thing about Fire N Ice is that it’s located right along 17th Avenue SW which makes it easy to go check out all the other restaurants, bars and lounges found along the Red Mile before or after your shisha session. It also is a very lively location on weekends; it basically turns into a nightclub but with hookah bars!
When it comes to taste, I’d say that Fire N Ice is tied for third with Medina for shisha taste. If you’re looking for a unique shisha smoking atmosphere, however, Fire N Ice is the place to go.
- Address – 1211 9th Avenue SE, Calgary, AB
- Phone Number – 403-474-2828
One thing I enjoy about Arch Lounge is that it is family owned and operated, giving you a personable shisha experience every time. As far as taste is concerned, I’d say that Arch Lounge is tied with Cloud 9 for the best tasting shisha in the city.
This place can get very busy on weekends and holidays so you may want to consider making a reservation if you’re down for a shisha session.
Medina Café & Grill
- Address – 1004 1st Street SW, Calgary, AB
- Phone Number – 403-237-9002
Of all the best shisha bars in Calgary, I got to say that I like Medina’s interior set up the best. Inside you’ll find a contemporary atmosphere with comfortable booth seats for parties of four or more, as well as spacious two person tables that are great for catching up with your bestie – or whoever else it may be!
Medina also serves up pretty delicious Middle Eastern cuisine and some western favourites for a reasonable price. Its shisha can be a bit bland at times which is why I am ranking it as the third best on our list when it comes to taste, although I would recommend this place over Quavado any day.
