Fodor's Review

At the top of the "hookah bar" heap that has taken this neighborhood by storm, Karma provides a stylish sprawl with Indian decor (dig that wrought-metal statue of Kali) for local scenesters to fill their bowls and suck in the various aromatic tobaccos available (cigarette smoking is permitted too). Happy hours start from 1 pm and Friday nights have belly dancers (the professional kind—not customers who get too hookah-ed up and start gyrating).
