The biggest new club at a major mall is about to open its doors in Australia’s capital city of Melbourne, bringing a boost to a local industry that has been struggling to catch up with demand for its signature hookah-themed entertainment.
Key points:Hookah lounge will be opening on Saturday at the Sydney Mall, which is also home to some of the biggest shopping malls in the worldHookahs are widely enjoyed around the world but in Australia, hookah lounges are typically reserved for high-end hotels or exclusive clubs that cater exclusively to tourists.
The hookah club will be located in the Sydney mall’s shopping center, which has become an international hotspot for hookah bars and restaurants.
It is also located at the centre of Sydney’s gay community and is a popular destination for people looking to relax after a long weekend.
“We’ve seen this trend grow in the last few years, which I think is really exciting,” Mr Jelinek said.
“It’s not just about the hookah but it’s about the social atmosphere, it’s the vibrancy and the fun that people enjoy and I think that’s what makes it so special.”
The club will feature a full bar and lounge, with tables, a lounge table, an outdoor pool, an in-room lounge area, and a lounge bar area.
It will feature three separate bars, one featuring local cocktails and one with imported drinks.
The lounge bar will be open to customers from 11am to 7pm on Saturday, with the main event at 7pm.
Mr JelineK said he was looking forward to the opportunity to work with the local community.
“I think hookah clubs are a great way for people to get together and share their love for the game, and I’m really excited to see how that develops and see where it goes,” he said.
Hookas are widely favoured around the globe, but they have not been as well-loved as other popular cocktails such as rum, vodka and rum punch.
