The Hideaway

The best smoke shops double as glass-art galleries. Hideaway is a creative conquest of tobacco culture. With stacks of shelves packed with pipes, hookahs, bowls, and beakers, there's something here to help you imbibe just about anything you'd like no matter how you fancy doing it. Choose an intricately painted handheld piece or a large, brightly tinted work by local glassblowers created in Hideaway's own Stone Arch Glass Studio, where glassworks are branded MN Legit. While they certainly hat-tip to 420, don't insult the clerk's intelligence and ask about weed. Obviously.
