  • 5 Best Places for Shisha in Kuala Lumpur

    KL’s Most Popular Shisha Bars

    Shisha is quite common in Kuala Lumpur and can be found mostly in Middle Eastern restaurants, open-air mamak restaurants, as well as bars and lounges. Also known as a hookah, the practice involves a water pipe that’s used to vaporise flavoured (usually fruity) tobacco.
     
    In recent years, smoking shisha has outgrown its Arabic roots to become a popular after dinner activity as it is relatively inexpensive and can be shared between three to four people at a time. Best of all, many shisha bars are affiliated with all-night cafes and bars, so you can easily grab a bite or drink whilst enjoying a good puff. As the city plays hosts to countless shisha joints, we’ve put together a list of the five most popular places for shisha in Kuala Lumpur.
