The Best Shisha Bars in Hong Kong

Grab your pals and chill out with the best shisha in Hong Kong. 

A mellow night out is occasionally required – not often, mind you. Outdoors, with good friends and a waterpipe is top way to pass the time. Here are the the best spots to settle down with a shisha in Hong Kong.

The Nest

Otto Lounge is dead, long live The Nest. That’s right, one of our favourite Central spots has transformed into a new concept that’s equally as dreamy. Escape to this oasis for cocktails, tapas, and of course, shisha. Their shisha menu is divided into three sections: The Nest Mixes, The Classics and The Nest Signatures, all for HK$280. You can’t go wrong here, but we can’t wait to try Devilwood, a mix of white peach and ambrosia.
