Shishas have been around since the 16th century. This comfortable tradition with the ornate smoking devices came to Berlin via India, nobody can really tell you when. Soft seat cushions, ambient lighting and the matching background music are typical features of a shisha bar next to savoury food and the scent of the sweet tobacco. If you are looking to spend an evening talking with your friends and some Oriental indulgence, you should try one of the shisha bars on this list!
