Best of Boston

2001 Best Smoke Shop, Alternative

Sugar Daddy’s Smoke Shop

Mention any substance other than tobacco in this cluttered Kenmore Square hole-in-the-wall and you’ll find yourself escorted to the sidewalk. The staff is just that dedicated to staying within the boundaries of the law. However, they’re equally dedicated to selling what is inarguably New England’s most impressive collection of smoking glassware. Even nonsmokers can appreciate the artistry behind a delicate hand-blown water pipe, intricately swirled with more than 20 hues of blue. It’s nothing short of arresting.
