THE LOCALE | 7th District Hookah
THE LOWDOWN | There aren't a whole lot of places along the Grand Strand where you can enjoy a beer and smoke a hookah, but 7th District Hookah is one of them. That's where we went for happy hour this week.
You'll find 7th District Hookah at the corner of Broadway Street and U.S. 501 next to the Beach Bike Shop in the building where Groove used to be located. You can choose to belly up to the bar, or you can snag a spot on one of the many couches throughout the establishment.
Mostly locals hang out at 7th District Hookah this time of year, especially during weekends. You can watch sports on a drop-down projector screen, and a DJ plays every other weekend.
If you look at the logo of 7th District Hookah, you'll see a map of the 7th District of Budapest, which is where the bar gets its name. The owners met each other in the 7th District of Budapest one year while they were traveling. They kept in touch and decided to open a hookah bar here in Myrtle Beach.
You can get a variety of flavors of tobacco at 7th District Hookah. Popular choices include watermelon mint, peach strawberry, vanilla orange.
Happy hour runs from 5 to 8 p.m. weekdays. Drink deals include $2 beer bottles and $1.25 Bud Light cans, and during happy hour, hookah rentals cost $10, compared to the regular price of $14.
TIPS | 7th District Hookah also sells hookahs, supplies and tobacco. Also, up to four people can share a hookah without an additional charge; for groups of more than four sharing one hookah, an additional $5 is added per head.
