From rooftop bars to book shops, pastry shops to elegant cafes, shisha is readily available in all corners of Amman. A big part of the culture and daily life in Jordan, travellers can slip into this tradition in Amman and pick up the associated Middle Eastern smoking etiquette without too much fuss. A variation of tobacco mixed with the sap of raw sugar and various flavouring ingredients, you might find yourself inhaling a hookah of lemon cake, watermelon, mint or sweet chai. Try Amman’s Lemon Shisha Bistro and Almawardi cafe, or look out for various names like hookah cafe, argeeleh lounge and hubbly bubbly. Things to do in Amman don’t get much more otherworldly than this.
