Whether you want a fancy cigar or hand-blown glass hookah pipes, these eight smoke shops will have everything you need.

Park Slope

Cigar Inn

This Upper East Side lounge and shop is truly cigar-only. You can buy from a wide selection of high quality cigars and take your products to-go, but it’s more fun to stay in their lounge, sipping wine (it’s BYOB), smoking a cigar and pretending you’re back in the old-school New York City that let you do this everywhere.

Midtown East


Sometimes you want a cigar for a fancy, celebratory occasion—and sometimes you just want to look like a badass. This clean, large shop has a range of cigars at different prices in its humidor room, and shopping there is as addictive as nicotine—you might come in for a single Nat Sherman and walk out with an additional three cigars, a pipe and flavored rolling papers to boot.

Master Piece Smoke Shop

Right off the Greenpoint stop on the G train, this spot feels more stylish and Brooklyn-y than most smoke shops with its vaguely 1920s aesthetic and sleek, high-quality range of products. Their cigar section is small but well-curated, and there’s a good selection for tobacco-free products, like e-cigs and vapes, too.

Shisha International

Boasting a great selection of hookahs and gorgeous glass pipes, Shisha International is a Greenwich Village classic, that, apart from its hookahs, leans toward the “head shop” side of the smoke shop spectrum. Come prepared to haggle on the prices and walk out with something fun (or many fun things—it has a ton of smoking accessories).

The Smoking Shop

This West Village smoke shop has products at every price for every type of smoker—there are glass pipes and rolling papers and hookahs and flavored tobacco and grinders and vaporizers (and more).

Ultimate Vapor Source

As you can imagine from the name, this shop specializes in vaporizers and all their attendant accessories (like e-juices and atomizers). But the owners are knowledgable about all their products, including glass pipes and water pipes, and if they don’t currently offer a product, they’ll even order it for you.
