I know it's okay to leave "hain" off the end of the sentence with a negative (naheen) ... but is it also okay to leave it in there? "Larke chai nahi peete hain" ?

That's 100% fine. However, some Hindi speakers leave it out in daily speech.

I'm from a Lucknow, a major city in the development of Hindi/Urdu and no one here leaves out हैं from their sentences.

I'm from New Delhi. It sounds weird without the हैं.

Without hain it sounds like an incomplete sentence.

With a negative (when using "nahin"), you don't have to use "hain".

Good question. With a negative (when using "nahin"), you don't have to use "hain".
