7 Unique Hookah Types & Their Unique Features

By admin

Do you know that hookah, also known as shisha, has been enjoyed for centuries in various parts of the world? Presently, it has become a popular pastime for many people, especially in the Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa. Over time, hookah has evolved, and different types of hookahs have emerged with unique features.  

As we are dealing with hookahs too, in this article, we will explore some of the unique hookah types available with our hookah lounge in California apart from their features. 

Traditional Hookah 

Topping the list is the commonest category of hookah available in any famous smoke shop is the traditional hookah. You will be surprised to know that it has been in use for centuries. It is comprised of a metal stem, a glass base, and a clay bowl.  

In our lounge, we fill the bowl with tobacco and charcoal. Then it is positioned on top of it to heat the tobacco. The smoke produced passes through the water in the glass base, to cool and filter the smoke to make it less harsh. 

Modern Hookah 

A new type of hookah to have made its presence felt in the recent past is the modern hookah. It comprises materials like aluminum, stainless steel, or acrylic.  

This hookah is smaller and more compact compared to the traditional hookah, making it convenient for transportation and use. Moreover, it consists of unique designs and features, like LED lights, which make it more alluring. 

Egyptian Hookah 

Egyptian hookah happens to be another type of traditional hookah discussed earlier. It has gained prominence due to its ornate designs, which are often made of brass or silver.  

Featuring a tall stem, the Egyptian hookah provides a smooth and long draw. Additionally, its wide hose allows more smoke to pass through. The Egyptian hookah in our Hookah Lounge in Upland is known for its superior quality and durability. 

Multi-Hose Hookah 

Another category of traditional hookah that has multiple hoses is the multi-hose hookah. It lets multiple people smoke simultaneously. So, whenever you are visiting our famous smoke shop in Upland with your hookah-loving friends, you can enjoy it with them at the same time. 

The attachment of the hoses to a valve that regulates the airflow to each hose ensures that each person gets an equal share of smoke. The multi-hose hookah is ideal for social gatherings, where people wish to enjoy hookah together. 

Portable Hookah 

Another type of modern hookah that is designed for use while on the move is the portable hookah. Due to its lightweight, compactness, and convenience to assemble and disassemble, it is preferred by many. 

We recommend the portable hookah for outdoor events like festivals, picnics, or camping trips. As it is easy to clean, it is an easy option for those who wish to enjoy hookah without the extra hassle of setting up a traditional hookah. 

Fruit Hookah 

A type of hookah that is made using a hollowed-out fruit, like a pineapple or a watermelon is the fruit hookah. You’ll be surprised to know that the fruit is filled with tobacco, and charcoal is placed on top of it to heat the tobacco.  

The smoke produced passes through the fruit to infuse the smoke with the flavor of the fruit. This category of hookah suits those who wish to enjoy a unique and flavorful smoking experience. 

Glass Hookah 

Glass hookah is a kind of hookah that is entirely made of glass. Its modern and sleek design makes it stand out from other hookah types.  

We find that the glass hookah is also easy to clean, as it can be disassembled and washed in a dishwasher. Moreover, it provides a smooth and flavorful smoking experience, as the glass does not affect the taste of the smoke. 

Safety Factor 

Last but not least, it is crucial to use hookah safely and responsibly, as hookah smoking can have health risks if done excessively r exceedingly. Overall, hookah is a great way to relax and socialize with friends, and with the variety of hookah types available to us, we can assure you that there is something for everyone to enjoy whenever you visit us. 


All these years hookah has evolved, and various hookah types have been launched with unique features. Irrespective of your preferences, there is a hookah type for every hookah aficionado.  

When choosing a hookah from our Hookah Lounge in California, we recommend that you should give due preference to your individual choices, as well as the quality and durability of the hookah. Moreover, it is essential to use high-quality tobacco and charcoal, as low-quality products can adversely affect the taste and overall smoking experience.
