Jabba smoking his hookah pipe

A hookah pipe was a large water pipe device used for smoking various substances, such as Marcan herbs or other intoxicants. The pipes were designed to be quite ornate and used the same basic components; the bowl, water jar, and a length of hose with a mouthpiece on the end.



The hookah pipe Jabba kept on his throne

The hookah pipe was very popular with the Hutts, particularly those who were the head of major and powerful criminal empires.

Jabba the Hutt, the infamous kingpin of the Outer Rim, almost always had a hookah with a removable lid by his side.[1] On the top portion was a gas substance which he would inhale and exhale. It had a long tube on the very top that he would hold to smoke the substance. This was one of his many trademarks.

On the bottom portion of Jabba's pipe was a feeding bowl.[1] In it were live creatures that Jabba would occasionally eat. He would have the pipe removed for special occasions, such as a dance number from one of the bands he employed, going on a trip to make deals, or when he would go to sleep. Otherwise, he would be smoking the concoction constantly.

Other Hutts, such as Aruk Besadii Aora, Bogga, Boonda, Borvo, Ziro Desilijic Tiure, Orko, Gorga Desilijic Aarrpo, and Durga Besadii Tai, smoked a hookah pipe on occasion.


Thon smoked from a hookah pipe in his house on Ambria.[2]

Obi-Wan Kenobi also kept a water pipe of free-form tarnished chrome in his home on Tatooine.[source?]

Captain Hark'r, the Noehon supply master for Reekeene's Roughnecks, owned a water pipe.[3]
