Helping a traditional Middle Eastern pastime get the go-ahead during events season

As we approach what promises to be another very busy Ramadan period, Andrews Sykes Climate Rental has been busy helping customers with an array of seasonal requirements – including some particularly niche applications!

Shisha bars have long been embedded in Middle Eastern culture, albeit their origins are disputed, with the popularity of such facilities normally peaking during the months of April and May.

Because of this, we are already seeing enquiries from hotels, restaurants and other business proprietors looking to open temporary shisha cafés before the festivities commence. read more
