Been here quite a few times now and I have to say it's the best Shisha lounge around! Really good service, fantastic flavours to choose from and the milkshakes are really yummy! So much better than the one in Canary Wharf! Defo worth a visit!

Best shisha. The staff were very friendly. Always offering to replace the coals. Ambience was awesome. Very comfortable seating. Most valuable shisha for your money

Just go in. They wont ask for ID and just stay calm. But its 2 people per pot. Say if there are 3 people or 4. You'll need to buy 2 pots.

The Basement Shisha Lounge has taken over a year to setup and launch. It is like no other social venue in London and the Home Counties. We are selling an experience, not just the amazing setting, the beautiful decor, zoned areas for the discerning guests to take stock, sit back and relax while soaking in the warm and cosy environment of The Basement Lounge with soothing background music. No! We want you to remember your visit and we want you to remember the taste of our invigorating shisha, our Smoothies, soft drinks, fresh coffee, Panini’s and our large selection of Deserts.
