Rendez-vous Goes All-Hookah
Though takeout from Oasis or South U Pizza is welcome
by Sally Mitani
Rendez-vous Cafe dropped its food service over the summer to invest in hookahs, becoming Rendezvous Hookah Lounge. Formerly Smoka Hookah upstairs and a longtime cafe downstairs, it's now one big hookah lounge, with customers invited to order in food from one of owner Nizar al Awar's adjacent restaurants, the Oasis Mediterranean Grill or South U Pizza.
Rendezvous Hookah Lounge, 1111 South University, 761-8600. Sun.-Thurs. noon-2 a.m., Fri. & Sat. noon-4 a.m. facebook.com/rvhookah
