Do not be fooled by the title and picture. This place is somewhat ghetto and attracts hoodrats. They overcharge for everything as well. After 9pm they take your chair away from you unless you do table service. I hope that you like standing up.

I came to B Side for a birthday gathering and the atmosphere was very nice. However the service and experience wasn't all that great. The waitresses took forever to greet us, the menu for food did not have a lot of variety. Although I do understand the main focus is hookah so food may not be the strong point. I... More

Very good food, and music. There is belly dancing and dabke as the night goes on. Plenty of variety at bar. The establishment is a little small but worth it.

Walked in and was thrown a water bottle and no glass. Apparently hookah spot doesn't give complimentary tap water on weekends lmao! Waitress had horrible attitude . Medium burger was burnt and took a half hour to come because "medium burgers take long ". Bought hookah and when asked if I can get coals replenished she said "they already came... More
