Welcome to Chicago's premier hookah cafe and lounge. We now proudly offer a full bar with daily specials. We also provide free Wi-Fi for all customers. We offer over 25 flavors of tobacco, including double apple, orange, mint, jasmine, black licorice and watermelon. Add liquor or wine to the base of your hookah for an even more unique taste and experience. Enjoy a 500-year-old tradition in a casual, comfortable space. Both non-smokers and smokers will enjoy the cool, flavorful taste of the Hookah.
Exposed brick is complemented by vividly painted walls detailed with Moroccan stenciling in this comfortable, casual space which draws college kids and 30-something barhoppers alike. Seating in the mustard-walled front hall consists of mismatched couches, basket chairs, tables and a few fabric-draped tables with cushions for floor lounging. In back, there's a bar, three curtained-off semi-private areas, and more low tables with cushions. Summer brings more tables outside.
Sigara is also proud to offer a wide selection of cold-food offerings as well such as falafel wraps, hummus wraps, cold cut sandwiches, spring rolls and salads. Enjoy a wide range of coffee and tea products including espresso, latte, cappucino, Turkish coffee and espresso and a wide assortment of international teas.
At $20, hookah sessions are affordable and can be shared by any number of people (shared by three, the experience lasts roughly 30-40 minutes).
When to Go
Wednesdays are ladies night, with specials like tarot card readers and fortune tellers. A belly dancer performs Thursday-Saturday nights at 10:30pm, and Sunday evenings feature live darbuka percussion. Afternoons are mellow, perfect for lounging with a game of chess or backgammon.
Know Before You Go
Shisha (tobacco blends) are rated by flavor and "sensory awareness" (complexity), and flavors can be blended. Servers keep hookahs burning with fresh coals so you get the most smoke for your fire.
