Exotic Turkish grocery and cafe in Lincoln Park..
The East flaunts its feathers at this eclectic BYOB hookah bar, electrified with ottoman floor seating, antique gold lamps from Istanbul and walls painted in vibrant lime green and lavender. Smoking is not permitted inside, but the tobacco section boasts more than 70 flavors of top-grade Fantasia tobacco, along with hookahs of all funky colors and sizes. An extra draw is the little grocery aisle packed with imported foodstuffs like frozen Turkish pizzas (with toppings like spicy chopped lamb) and vacuum-packed sardines from the Black Sea. A relaxing cafe serving up overflowing salads and plates of babaganoush and feta--not to mention free Wi-Fi--acts as a multi-generational hangout.
