There’s something to the cannabis club concept, because these places are popping up quickly. Whether it’s because the economy is recovering from the pandemic, legalization is spreading, pent up demand, etc., we’re seeing more of these clubs open. Some aren’t even opening so much as they are welcoming cannabis into their establishments. Pretty soon it’s going to be hard to keep track of them. Here’s another Illinois weed lounge to visit now.
Another one? Can you buy weed at this one?
No, similar to that of other ones we’ve profiled, you can’t buy weed there. But you can bring your own, and consume it on the premises.
So what and where is it?
Aroma’s Hookah Bar is located in the college town of DeKalb, Illinois. It’s about 75 miles northwest of Chicago. Up until recently, it has been a standard hookah bar, with all of the flavored smoke selections you would expect to find. But now they’re expanding their reach.
The club is now hosting BYOM (bring your own marijuana) sessions, available in their lounge during select hours. If you want to use the lounge, you’ll need to sign a waiver, so make sure you read all of the fine print first and that it’s something you’re comfortable with.
If you want to get the latest updates, follow their Facebook page for details. As of this writing, you can pay $12 to use the lounge all day, every day. Just remember you need to bring your own.
In addition, they have a downstairs section that regularly gets transformed into a dance club, as well as poker nights, movie marathons, and more.
If you’re a Northern Illinois University student, aged 21 or over, this is an excellent place to check out.
So now that Illinois hookah bars are starting to rebrand themselves legal cannabis consumption lounges, can we expect to see this happen in Chicago? And if so, when? Be sure to check back with us often, as we will bring you the latest updates.
