Really enjoyed this spot, great atmosphere, cozy couches, GREAT shisha. There was a pretty gd DJ on, urban music mostly - apparently there is one on most Saturdays. We went for one of the specials, raspberry and blueberry, 23 quid - seemed a bit steep at first but we did end up smoking for over 3 hours (between 2) so... More

I came here last week, I've been smoking shisha for years now, this place is by far the best I've been to in a long time!. Not only is the service second to none, the attention to detail is exemplary. It's a hidden gem, was quite difficult to find at first but I'm glad I did. I'd like to thank... More

Smooth cloudy smoke, great ratio mix of flavours and brilliant customer service. Milkshake on point too! Definitely will go back.

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

Have been coming to basement regularly for the past year, and the service has always been unparalleled. Regular coal top ups at least every 20minutes, and a great selection of flavours. Great smoke and head quality too. Possibly one of the only lounges to stock fumari mint choc, my personal favourite!

I came for the fight night with my freinds. We were told to book seats when we called up which we did, the guy on the phone sounded like he just wanted to get rid of us as soon as he picked up. The shisha was really nice but was ruined because the coals were not managed as all the... More

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.
