the Twin Cities

Best Head Shop


There's no way around it: The reigning king of all Twin Cities head shops can't be beat. Dinkytown's Hideaway is a holy apothecary of hookahs, hand pipes, water pipes, and other fully functional collectible glass art. Browsing this vast selection can be intimidating, but sales reps will kindly help just as long as you don't mention the prohibited plant that all this pretty hardware is best suited for. Technically, everything is "designed for tobacco products." Hideaway is also the flagship retailer of Stone Arch Studio's hand-blown MN Legit brand of glasswork. Buy local art, support sustainable stoners.
