So Friday night I went to Oasis Liquid, a Hookah Lounge & Cafe located inside of Minglewood Hall in Midtown. For those that are unfamiliar, hookah is a single or multi-stemmed (often glass-based) instrument for smoking tobacco in which the smoke is cooled and filtered by passing through water. There are many flavors to choose from (last night we tried Vanilla), and they also have a few that are tobacco free. They also serve libations and snacks to nibble on in case you’re hungry.
Oasis is open every night starting at 5pm. On Fridays, belly dancers from Pyramid Dance Company perform starting around 10pm.
(I’ve never seen belly dancing live so I had to go down and check it out. They were pretty good, and now I want to take a class). Saturdays, there’s a live DJ spinning.
Oasis has such a cool vibe. It feels like you’re in an Uptown NY loft, hidden away from the world. If you need a moment after work to relax, or just want somewhere to go where you can hang out with your friends in an unconventional location, go by and check it out. The only requirement is that you have a membership (which is only $6 a year; if you got one at the Highland location you’re fine).
