I will say I liked the vibe of Xai. Pretty calm, staff was kind, yet not too attentive (good or bad depending on your date..etc) Been to lots of hookah bars and still don't understand why this one is so much more expensive. Loved their tea (coconut) and their fatoush was great. Convenient location.

Service was good. Alejandro was our server. He was very patient with us as it was our first time at a Hookah Lounge. His suggestions were on point. The food was good, despite other reviews that I saw, the pricing was reasonable and the portions were plenty. The ambiance was very nice, but I felt the couches could have been... More

Having traveled extensively in the Middle East, it was great fun to have dinner at XAI. It is one of those magic indoor/outdoor places near the Red Sea with very comfortable seating in a large space. The food is really very good and the service is plenty quick. The mixed appetizer plate is very good! Most of the visitors like... More

Let me join the chorus and say this is THE best hookah lounge I've ever been to. The hookah lounges in Las Vegas (where we're from) don't match Xai's beauty, atmosphere, and quality hookah experience. Perhaps the only downside would be that their service needs improvement. It took about 15 minutes from when we were seated to get someone to... More

I came here on a saturday night with my boyfriend and we loved it. It was pretty crowded, but not overly loud or obnoxious. I would say its a place better suited to long-time hookah smokers rather than first time users. The hookah was on the pricey side (26-28) BUT its a huge bowl and they will consistently come over...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
