Smoking Shisha in Bars & Lounges Officially Banned in Edmonton as of July 1st


This has been a hot topic in the city since February of 2018 – Edmonton’s City Council has had many conversations about how to decide the fate and what the overall safety of Shisha bars is in Edmonton.

After today’s discussion from Edmonton City Council, it was announced that as of July 1st 2020 in Edmonton, lounges & bars will be banned from serving Hookah & Shisha products to Edmontonians.

This has obviously sparked a large debate on twitter this morning, many people are discussing the cultural aspect behind Shisha bars – questioning if it’s a push of prejudiced decision towards cultures that do smoke Shisha regularly.

Let me know what you think – will you miss Shisha bars in Edmonton? - @mariah.mae
