Guest post by Eastern Ray Shisha
Welcome to our shisha hire Manchester service page! We regularly provide shisha hire packages in Manchester for events of all types and sizes. In the past, we have provided our shisha hire Manchester service for weddings, birthday parties and corporate events. Our clients from Manchester choose us on a regular basis because we have proved ourselves as a reliable and professional company with close attention to detail and excellent customer service. When it comes to providing shisha hire, there is more than meets the eye. We work with each one of our clients to gain a better understanding of the nature of their event so that we can put together exceptionally unique and exciting shisha packages. With our shisha hire Manchester packages we can also provide additional services such as belly dancers, shisha tents, marquees, professional photographers and excellent hostesses. If you are planning a themed event or party in Manchester, we can provide you with many exciting theme ideas such as Alice in the Wonderland, Arabian Nights and many more.
With every shisha hire package, we provide professional shisha assistants to supervise and manage the shisha pipes during your event. Our shisha assistants are highly experienced and in the past, have worked for leading shisha cafes and lounges at prestigious establishments. This experience allows them to manage shisha pipes with relative ease as they can easily pre-empt any potential issues. When it comes to events, it is not only important to have excellent shisha pipes, but also exceptional client service. Our guests are very sociable, polite and professional, which allows them to act as a first point of contact for your guests. During events, guests like to ask questions as well as have a chat about the shisha pipes. Our shisha assistants will certainly provide your guests with an exceptional shisha experience and therefore add value to your event.
At Eastern Ray, we take health and safety very seriously. Before an event, we will work with you to complete health and safety assessment forms as well as help you to liaise with the venue by providing you with guidance and support on shisha-related issues. You may not be new to the shisha scene and may have had shisha before at a shisha café or a lounge. Many shisha cafes rely on volume to survive, which means that a lot of the time they do not have enough time to wash the shisha pipes, which can result in a poor and unsafe experience. Equally, shisha cafes are very competitively priced, which means that they have to cut a lot of the corners to remain competitive. This can often result in a poorer quality of the shisha pipes and shisha service alike. At Eastern Ray, we do not work with volumes. Instead, we work with a select group of affluent clients and make quality and exceptional client service our core focus as a shisha hire company and a themed event planner. All our shisha pipes are washed, polished and disinfected after every event. Equally, we do not run our equipment to the ground. We make regular investments to replace equipment such as the pipes in order to ensure that our clients get only the best shisha pipes.
Have you ever had a headache from a shisha or perhaps a harsh taste? Has this put you off shisha? Well, a common reason for this can be attributed to quick-light coals. These coals contain gunpowder and chemicals which help them to burn faster and thus saves times. A lot of the time, the coals are not burned properly, which means that you can be smoking gunpowder. At Eastern Ray, we only use natural coconut coals for our shisha hire packages in Manchester and elsewhere. Natural coconut coal provides better levels of heat and contains no chemicals. This invariably results in a great shisha experience, smooth flavours and happy guests.
This takes us on to our shisha menu. Our clients from Manchester find our luxury shisha menu to be very indulging and refreshingly different. However, do not let our extensive shisha menu overwhelm you. Here is a quick run through of the shisha pipes you can order.
Traditional Shisha: is handcrafted in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries by artisans with many years of experience behind them. The tri-metal shisha stems are engraved with Egyptian symbols and Arabic writing whilst the glass vases are hand painted with arabesque designs, both of which will help to add a Middle Eastern and exotic theme and mood to your event. The shisha hose is made from fine and soft fabrics, which makes it a pleasure to hold. Traditional shisha pipes come with a clay bowl pre-packed with flavoured tobacco mixes. The shisha bowl is heated by natural coconut coal. If your party or event is in open air or in partially enclosed premises such as a terrace, traditional shisha pipe is ideal.
Fruit Shisha: is an ideal choice if you want to add an exotic twist to your event. Our clients from Manchester have found our fruit shisha to be a real head turner, which never fails to leave an impression on the guests. A fruit shisha uses a freshly carved fruit bowl normally made from a pineapple or a melon instead of the more usual clay bowl. The fruit bowl is then filled with flavoured hookah tobacco that is heated by the coals. We also add some freshly squeezed fruit juice or alcoholic cocktails to add more textured notes to the overall shisha experience.
Champagne infused shisha: is very popular at birthday parties and weddings in Manchester. Champagne shisha pipes are made using high quality champagne in the vase and premium tobacco mixes to complement the taste of champagne. The champagne infusion helps to give the shisha flavour a fizzy and pleasant champagne notes. In the past, we have used flavours such as white peach and Roman grape, which go hand in glove with champagne. Once you try the champagne infused shisha, it will be difficult to go back to any other shisha categories.
Rose shisha: is ideal for weddings and intimate occasions. A standard tobacco clay bowl is replaced by a real rose that is carefully packed with premium molasses and heated by a coal. Rose shisha is one of the most exclusive shisha pipes, which we recommend if you are looking to really make an impression on your guests, as well as to create an intimate atmosphere.
Electronic shisha pipe: Have you come across modern mantra such as “vape”, “vapefam”, “vapelife”, “vapeporn”? Welcome to the twenty-first century of shisha. Electronic shisha pipe is an extremely popular choice at corporate events, birthday parties and other socials that take place in enclosed and almost always public venues such as nightclubs and hotels. An electronic shisha does not use tobacco or coals, which means that it is less risky than the traditional shisha pipes so far as health and safety is concerned. Moreover, according to the laws of England, vaping does not constitute smoking because it does not, in the words of the anti-smoking statute, contain a “lit substance”. This means that it is perfectly legal to vape or use an electronic shisha in enclosed premises that are protected by the anti-smoking laws. An electronic shisha still has the appearance of a traditional shisha with the only exception of the clay bowl, which you must have noticed is a common differentiator among most shisha pipes. An electronic shisha pipe uses an e-shisha head that works using the same principle as an electronic cigarette. The battery heats up the coils wrapped in organic Japanese cotton and soaked in premium e-liquid. If you have not tried electronic shisha before, it is fair to apply the “Marmite” conundrum as you will either love it or hate it. In the past, our clients from Manchester have said that an electronic shisha is an ideal alternative to non-smokers because vaping is drastically different to smoking and is more accessible to people who do not want to smoke or start smoking. In fact, Public Health of England said that vaping or the use of electronic cigarettes is 95% less harmful than traditional tobacco products. We have a wide array of premium e-liquid that we procure from the leading UK online vape shop, The Eliquid Boutique. We have United States and UK e-liquid brands such as Jimmy the Juice Man, Square 47, Ruthless, Kilo, My Juicy Affair, Alice in the Vapeland, E-Luxe London and many other great brands. We tend to use e-liquid that is higher in VG because it helps to generate more vapour which helps to emulate the shisha experience quite well.
When picking your shisha flavour, ensure that you consider the tastes and preferences of your guests. Try to think about how many of your guests are non-smokers. This will allow you to structure your shisha hire Manchester package more effectively. For example, you will be able to choose nicotine and nicotine free flavours. This will encourage more people to try shisha at your event – smokers and non-smokers alike. When choosing your shisha tobacco or e-liquid flavour, try to first start with more popular flavours such as apple, strawberry, mint and peach as these will appeal to a higher proportion of your guests. The odds are, some of your guests will tell you a story of a time when they had shisha whilst on holiday in Dubai and how much they enjoyed it.
