7. Hookah with friends at Chi-Cha Lounge

Posted at November 7, 2010 by 6 Comments

Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

Ahh Sunday evenings.  How I hate thee!  I mean Sundays would be a perfectly wonderful day if not for the fact that I spend most of the day dreading going back to work on Monday.  So what to do to relax a bit?

Head to Chi-Cha Lounge of course!

I think Sundays is the perfect day for Chi-Cha Lounge because the place won’t be crowded like on Saturday or Friday evenings.  Chi Cha Lounge’s namesake is the traditional Latin American drink from the Andes known as “chicha”, a concoction of corn soaked in pineapple juice, cinnamon, cloves, cane sugar and the house secret ingredient.  I tried it and wasn’t 100% sold.  Let’s just say it’s an acquired taste.

Hmm excuse me, I don’t even smoke!

Me neither.  Never have.  But I enjoy the taste and sweet aroma of Hookah, and the atmosphere and vibe at Chi-Cha.   Hookah is the name for the water pipe that is used to deliver the shisha ( flavored tobacco).  You’ll have to try it to experience it.  I’m completely new to the scene, having only been there twice, but I love the entire experience.

My last time there I got the Strawberry and Melon mix hookah.

Their food and drinks

For food we tried their Calamari, crab cakes, and plantain.  The plantains were a little dry, but the Calamari and Crab cakes are to live for!!  They do a good job with their dishes, I think you’ll like.  And their mojitos? Awesome!  They have a variety of flavors for you to try.  But go easy,  work is in a few hours, remember?

Cool Tip: When you enter walk directly to the back of the place and you will find a small secluded room with three tables, dimly lit with an awesome red light.  It’s an intimate little spot for a date or for you to catch up with a few friends.  Enjoy

    Really when someone doesn’t be aware of after that its up to other visitors that they
    will help, so here it occurs.
