Exhale Sheesha Restaurant, 17 New Canal Street, Digbeth, Birmingham
Exhale Sheesha Restaurant, 17 New Canal Street, Digbeth, Birmingham
This is one of the few remaining buildings on this side of New Canal Street, and it is home to a sheesha or shisha restaurant, or sheeshateria. Shisha is a smoking tradition from the Middle East, also known as hookah or hubble bubble, which involves smoke from flavoured tobacco being inhaled through a reservoir of water. Because of the smoking regulations, this practice has to be carried on outside the building, but inside food is available like a conventional restaurant.

Birmingham City Council is currently on a mission to warn participants of the claimed dangers of the practice. This is quite controversial for various reasons, not least that in a time of huge cut backs in the City's staff and services, it is suggested by some that this is not the best prioritisation of dwindling council resources. Meanwhile new shisha bars continue to spring up.
