News and notes from Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest airport

Hartsfield-Jackson has its first hookah bar

The next time you go to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, you might notice an unusual new amenity: The airport's first hookah bar.

The Terrapin Tap House Cigar and Smoke Lounge opened on Concourse D in November selling craft beer, sandwiches, brats, salads -- along with more than a dozen brands of cigars and "a vast selection of shisha hookah tobacco flavors," according to concessionaire Delaware North Cos.

It's unusual for a Hartsfield-Jackson eatery to allow smoking. Most of the smoking areas are walled off rooms on the concourses. Two other restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson, the Gordon Biersch and TAP gastro pub on Concourse A, also allow smoking.
