Mikes has bailed me out a number of times. Its seems whatever problem I go in there with, I leave not only with my problem solved, but having learned a couple things also. Went in there last weekend with an old JBD piece I was looking to get working again. Finding glass for these pieces is getting really hard to find, but Tony made sure I left with what I needed. Tony has bailed me out before, but this time was huge! No matter what problem you may have Mike's is the place you want to go in LA. Also be sure to check out the JBDs on display in the back case when youre in there.

I get all my smoking stuff from here, all my glass pieces and wraps. Every friday I buy my herb from a website called ""Hollywood Nights Herbal Incense"" (google it) but I only will buy my smoking stuff from Mikes, it is the best shop for that and the staff loves me. I love Hollywood!

I don't know about all the great reviews on here. I walked in and asked if they had any vaporizers for a beginner who isn't sure he wants to use one and doesn't want to spend much money up front. They immediately steered me towards the $800 models and only reluctantly showed me a few $200 models. They said there was ""nothing any cheaper"" even though I said I didn't care about quality and know damn well you can find a starter vape at around $80. Not as far as they were concerned. So, turned around and walked out. Plus it is that sleezy hollywood blvd vibe. Find somewhre else to shop.

if you're wondering why this place has so many citysearch reviews, its cuz they ask you to review it on your way out=)
i was looking to get a really nice bong(something for myself with at least one perc, like a LUX) and first thing when i walked in holly said hi and asked if i needed any help. i said no and i was just looking. well they left me along until i decided i was ready but was so overwhelmed with the selection they had...
i told holly i had about 250 to spend and wanted something with a tree perc. she asked if it needed to be 'name brand' i said no and she took me over to look at some glass. she showed me some really nice glass for about HALF of what i was looking to spend. really nice of her to do that. ussally some of these places start you off on high end stuff which is past your budget. to be honest i had my heart said on a LUX mini when i walked in but asked for help anyway to see if something would change my mind.
looked at some stuff and ended up getting the LUX mini for 250(single perc, splash guard, ice notches, diffused stem, real nice...). after doing some research online with pricing i found out what i paid for it was average price for what this thing is going for. everyone else pretty much paid around 250 so i was at least glas i didnt get ripped off...they also threw in a bag for $10. really nice staff, not pushy at all and decent prices.
my only beef is the location because its in hollywood so that ussally means tough parking and a bunch of tourists walking around. i was lucky and able to find parking within 10 mintues.
when you walk in, just tell them what you're looking to spend and they will show you what is best in that price range.

Mike's Smoke Shop is without a doubt the premier smoke shop in the Hollywood area. The staff at Mike's are the most knowledgeable and helpful individuals one could hope to do business with. Holly, in particular, gave excellent advice and was instrumental in assuring that I chose the correct product for my budget. I would certainly not hesitate to shop at Mike's again - they are the best in the business.

This is the best Smoke Shop in LA, and I have been to several. Here is why:
Selection is key for a smoke shop, and Mike's has it all. The famed ""Illadelph,"" which seems to be so hard to find anywhere, including online, is abundant at Mike's. Every company you can imagine, ROOR, HiSi, you name it- each has their own display with pieces of every size and price.
Even the non brand name pieces are only the top in quality. A little over a year ago I bought my bong from Mike's, not only is it still in perfect condition and working great, Mike's helped me find all the perfect attachments to make it the absolute best it could be.
Not just bongs and bubblers, I've seen only the highest quality glass pipes at Mike's- if I were to be buying a pipe there's no other place I would go.
Whatever your question or problem is, Mike's will find a solution for it. The staff will take their time with you as though you were the only one in the store, and make sure you're entirely satisfied before you leave.
I recently was helped by Abhinav, who was more than helpful in finding the perfect attachments and anything else I had a question about, whether or not it pertained to what I was there at the time for.
I've never met an employee at Mike's who didn't seem truly interested in not only helping me, but how I was doing that day and if there was anything they could assist me with.
In all honesty, I really have seen all the shops out here, Mike's is tops. It really will have just what you're looking for. In one case they thought they didn't have the right sized stem for an attachment of mine, they were about to call up another shop to see if it was in stock there so as to make sure I walked out with the exact piece I went in for.
This is no lie, Mike's is the best. Go in for yourself and see- you'll be writing top reviews for them the moment you get home.

When I go shopping for a new piece, I want a large selection of the specific type of piece I'm looking to find. Mike's has the largest selection of smoking apparatus (in one location) that I've encountered in over 20 years. I've been to three Dementia's, the Illadelph store, and many others. None compare to Mike's.
They have pieces to fit EVERY budget...inexpensive...to super high-end HEADY units by top artists. Simple pieces, complex pieces...vaporizers, hookahs, glass, metal, wood, ceramic...they truly have a piece for every occasion and smoking preference.
In addition to the tremendous inventory, the staff at Mike's will help guide you, if needed. They are fully knowledgeable in both old school pieces and the newest technology. I have been to Mike's on three occasions now. Each time, I have spent close to two hours looking, holding, comparing...and asking questions. Each time, the staff at Mike's has been friendly, PATIENT, and had specific info on each piece.
I will return to Mike's the next time I am in the market for a new piece and HIGHLY recommend Mike's Smoke Shop to ANYONE looking for their next smoking utensil.
Thank you for your help and patience, Abhinav!
