New hookah shop opens!
Shea Beaumont had a different vision for his newest smoke shop.
Beaumont recently opened Karma, a cigar and hookah lounge located at 1077 Elm St. in Manchester, in an effort to provide an upscale place where men — and women — can enjoy premium tobacco products.
“Guys will certainly come down, but they wouldn’t be uncomfortable bringing their wife or girlfriend either,” Beaumont said.
Cigar lounges in New Hampshire cater largely to men with a masculine “old-tobacco-store feel to it,” said Beaumont, who owns Good Times Smoke Shop in Nashua and Capital Tobacco in Concord. “Karma is a completely different animal altogether,” Beaumont said. “It’s minimalistic, with a slight mix of a Middle Eastern, Tibetan, Moroccan feel. There’s a giant-sized painting of Buddha. It just has that type of feel to it.” Beaumont said Boston has a few high-end hookah and cigar lounges but Manchester had nothing close. With free wireless Internet and a food partnership with Mint Bistro next door, Karma provides a unique outlet in the area, Beaumont said.
Hookah is essentially a communal pipe where patrons smoke Shisha, a wet tobacco mixed with molasses, fruit and herbs. Beaumont said it’s an age-old tradition in many countries that is growing in popularity in the United States. Karma features hundreds of flavors, such as strawberry or orange creamsicle. Beaumont said the tobacco doesn’t taste harsh like cigars can for some.
“You can take a vacation during the day, and just sit and relax with friends,” Beaumont said. “The taste is just incredible, so fruity and full-bodied.” — Jeff Mucciarone, Hippo Press
