Shisha, hookah, sheesha or simply a water pipe, is a great way to relax and have fun with friends. Although this custom, taken from the inhabitants of the Middle East, has been known for several hundred years, shisha bars in Warsaw have not been popular for that long. However, it is clear that an increasing number of Europeans appreciate the opportunity to share a water pipe with their friends. Are you curious what we think about shisha? That’s very good, because today we want to tell you a little more about it and, at the same time, present some new ideas at Baila Show&Dining. Enjoy!
Shisha – what is it?
The mysterious and sonorous word ‘shisha’ comes from the Urdu language, although we do not know what does it exactly mean. It used to be translated as ‘jar’, and then the direct translation disappeared from dictionaries. However, it is certain that sheesha in Warsaw, in Europe and around the world has some dedicated enthusiasts. Does it surprise us? Not at all!
To smoke a sheesha, a special tobacco called treacle is used, to which fruit pulp is added – apple, cherry, grape, lemon, the flavours are quite numerous. It is important to note that while smoking a water pipe, there is a beautiful aromatic smell in the air, which creates a pleasant mood for the participants.
To enjoy the tradition of smoking a shisha, you need to put treacle in a stem, wrap it in foil and then heat it with a charcoal. The smoke that is produced by the heating passes through a special jug of water and there it is cooled. Then, using a dedicated hose, one should inhale the sweet tobacco smoke.
