The Pillar Lounge and Cafe

Hear each other.

The Pillar was designed because I wanted people to share their passions.  I've always enjoyed stimulating conversation, but could not seem to find a decent environment in which to have it, or to meet others with similar ideas. The closest I found was a diner.  At one such diner, I decided that it would be really nice to open a place where people just came in and talked, with very few distractions.  This is where the idea of The Pillar was born.   Hookahs were the perfect device to facilitate this vision. They are extremely social, and tend to inspire conversation.  Plus, they taste delicious.  We are open late because conversations usually open up more as inhibitions lower.  The comfortable couches will help to relax everyone, and the soul-filled coffee is there to keep the customers awake on these couches, so they won't sleep through their dreams.  Put this together, and all that is needed is great minds -- people will start hearing each other again.

We Only Use Ethically Traded Beans

We use coffee beans grown in places like Haiti, Thailand and Rwanda.  The workers are given benefits and typically paid almost double the fair-trade wage.  In addition,  some of the proceeds used to purchase the beans are reinvested in the communities where they are grown to build schools hospitals and address other community needs.  
Besides all of the great ethical reasons, we make a great cup of joe.  With rich aromatic flavor and depth.  You'll be asking for more and happy to find out, we serve endless cups!


Almost all of our shisha is grown in the United States.  We provide three of the top brands that smoke well and taste delicious!  In addition,  some of our flavors are made on site and are guaranteed to create large flavor and clouds of smoke great for making "O's", bubbles or any other smoke trick you may want to attempt.  We even have a few tools to help you with your endeavor including the "Hookah Bazooka" which makes large rings that can travel up to 30 Feet!
