As traditional cigarettes become less and less popular, more people are turning to a healthier alternative to smoking: vaping. In fact, vaping — including e-Liquids, vape shops, and vape lounges — is on track to become a $10 billion industry this year. As modern-day equivalents of the gentleman’s smoking room with a little twist of speak easy, vape stores and lounges are popping up in every neighborhood to serve people of every tax bracket.
Below are 20 amazing vape lounges in the United States. While there are certainly more than 20 places we could have chosen to include, these vape lounges were chosen based on a list of factors that include Yelp! reviews, menu of services provided, and the relaxation potential of the interior.
