Shisha culture spread through St Petersburg relatively recently but has already become a huge hit, provoking the opening of multiple restaurants and bars with a very special atmosphere, full of people exhaling the aromatic smoke. Culture Trip offers you the best places to have shisha and spend a relaxing evening.
Stylish and luxurious interior, relaxing atmosphere and high-class shishas – all this at Mundshuk. Centrally located on Nevsky prospect, it is on the top of the list of shisha places in the city, thanks to masters of shisha preparers working there and a huge selection of tobaccos and flavors.
This lounge is offering a huge selection of shishas, along with some outstanding tobacco and flavor combinations. As a cherry on top, they have a menu with dishes from different parts of the world and great selection of drinks. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed, a great choice to spend some quality time.
This place is the first in St Petersburg to open in format of a shisha anti-cafe: as any anti-cafe concept, you pay for time and consume for free. Pretty amazing for some real shisha lovers who want to try as much as they can and don’t mind spending half of the day exploring the menu. A small tip: To be sure you can find the place, call in advance!
The St Petersburg version of popular Moscow Hookah Place, created by a famous shisha bloger JohnCalliano, this is one of the top recommended places to visit for shisha fans. The menu is impressive, even for those who think they have tried all possible tobacco flavors (which you can also purchase from their shop). The Hookah Place is offering only shishas, tea and soft drinks, but if you are hungry, you are welcome to bring or order your own food.
This shisha bar offers a full menu for a proper dinner, full scale bar and, of course, a wide selection of shisha. The bar is linked with the shop under the same name, so they always have an impressive choice of tobaccos.
This is one of the oldest shisha bars in the city and a legendary place among all shisha lovers with a strong shisha culture. This is the place where you can get a shisha of a highest standard and also have a tasty dinner. Their menu offers the dishes from Western and Eastern cuisines. The shisha masters know their stuff and make sure the shisha taste is perfect.
The cosy and interesting shisha smoking concept: the Books and Smoke is combining two pastimes people enjoy: book reading and shisha smoking. Out of the food menu you’ll find only snacks and desserts, but their selection of cocktails and teas are a pleasant surprise. But the best thing: no need to worry about late-night restaurant options – St Petersburg’s city dining scene never sleeps.
