Very interesting little club. 10/7/2005

On the one hand this is a typical East Village club-lounge-bar. On the other hand, its very unique. Its a hookah bar, so there's great flavors of tobacco to be enjoyed. Upstairs consists of nooks, crannies, drapes, couches and tables, it reminds of lounges that I can't afford to go to, except with Karma I can actually afford a few drinks. Usually there's chilled house music or acid jazz playing. Downstairs is a dance floor / night club. The music downstairs varies but its usually good. I enjoy the retro hip hop. Overall an interesting place with a very mixed crowd (unlike most East Village bars) and worth checking out. more

Feel like you're in India, without the 25 hour flight. 6/23/2005

Walk in to Karma and the smells of exotic tobacco immediately engulf you. At this chic hookah bar, flavored tobacco's from around the world are available (my favorite being apple). The flowing red and black billowy curtains that hang throughout the various open and private rooms crate the atmosphere of an Indian tent, and the poofy lounge chairs just make you want to kick back and smoke. Don't smoke? There's still the bar, where everything under the sun is served, particularly their excellent flavored martini's. more
