Hazy hookah lounges with dirty couches and minimal items are things of the past. Gitana, located at 260 East Magnolia Blvd in downtown Burbank, has it all. A full bar, 22 different hookah flavors, indoor/outdoor seating, dancing and a delicious Mediterranean menu.
Afraid Gitana may be too exotic? No worries. Try the outdoor seating complete with heating lamps for those chilly nights. It’s there you’ll find groups of friends playing cards, board games or just enjoying a cocktail. Gitana also projects sporting events on the side of their restaurant to be viewed by all. I suggest getting there early for Lakers games if you want a good spot!
Want to partake in a more extravagant experience? Try the lounge area inside or grab a table in the dining room. Whether you want to dance or just kick back and puff out some smoke rings, you won’t be disappointed taking things indoors.
1 Hookah – Grape and Mint Flavors mixed (highly recommend) $12
1 Order of Hummus and Flatbread $5
1 Stella Artois $5
The hookah hit smooth and lasted over an hour. The servers at Gitana conveniently brought me fresh coals every few minutes, which helped the longevity and freshness of the smoke. The hummus was creamy and the bread came warm and soft. I washed it all down with a Stella feeling completely satisfied.
Mason says: Skip the burger baskets at your local watering hole and try something different. Experience Gitana.
