I drive out from Long Beach to come here. Bought 2 pieces here so far, and both experiences have been surprisingly pleasant, and never once did I feel badgered into buying something I didn't come in there for.
.. simple... if you know your sh*t, then this place is like a candy store... and if you're not sure, the knowledgeable staff (Rhadika being one), will present you with options depending on you're budget...
Ohhh! and what options they have!
Need a piece? Mikes Smokeshop on Hollywood!

Rhadica and Holly were a superhero team of question answerers and product producers. They educated me on what a chubbler was, recommended the best accessories for my piece and offered smiles and service. They also hipped me to Black Myst which I will be visiting soon. Plus my next piece will be bought at Mike's Smoke Shop! G4 knew exactly where it was going when they did their 420 special there! You smoke with Mike or you ain't smokin!

Recently purchased a new piece of art glass. The price was just out of my range, but the staff were very reasonable and I managed ot get a peice I love for a great price! The location is central to the Hollywood experience and the look and feel is friendly and inviting.

I think that this smoke shop is tha best one on tha BLVD. there are so many smoke shops on tha BLVD and they all have an assortment of products but Mikes is focused on smoking accessories and products unlike others. The employees are very knowledgeable and I learn something new everytime I come in to tha shop. Any questions that i have are quickly answered and the place in general has a wonderful vibe!!!! I suggest to anyone in LA and on tha BLVD to come in and enjoy this shop just as much as i do!

i just went to Mike's Pipe Shop and bought myself an iguana pipe. Right when I walked into the place, some greeted me and helped me right out. They made me feel really comfortable and gave excellent service. My business will now stay with them. Thanks Mikes!

This shop may seem small from the outside, but it by far doesn't do it any justice as this is one of the nicest collections as well as the absolute BEST customer service you will come across on Hollywood Blvd. I sincerely recommend this shop to anyone in need of a new piece. Whatever you may be looking for, be it pipe, hookah, bubbler, vape, etc... Mike's Smoke Shop will have something to satisfy any need. Don't be afraid to ask questions either. The staff is knowledgeable and more than willing to help.
To the shop:
You have a wonderful jewel of a place. I look forward to doing more business with you.. and on a regular basis. :)

Hello, everyone reading this.
I would like to complement ""Mike's Smoke Shop"" on a job well done. I live in Springfield, Missouri (that is 1621.4 miles from the smoke shops front door). I was looking to buy a Hookah having only smoked from one once before a week prior to calling Mike's. I heard about them from a friend locally that's visited them when he was in California. I called the shop not even knowing what to call the stuff I was looking for and began to talk to Radhika. She made me want to talk more she was so nice and helpful. She never made me feel stupid like I didn't know what I was talking about (even though I didn't). I ended up buying a MYA hookah because that is what my friend has and I liked his. So based off the conversation Radhika and I had, she knew what I was looking for (how many hoses, with or without ball bearing, type of shisha, etc). The only deal was I didn't know what any of the one's she had in mind, looked like. This was the deal sealer for me. Radhika said how about I take pictures of the Hookah's that I think fit your requirements with my iPhone and email them to you! Me being in the IT profession and being an iPhone advocate thought that was an awesome idea. I had ten different photos in my hand and my mind made up in less then 30 minutes. This was 12/17/2008. They paid for the shipping and got it to me by 12/23/2008, two days before Christmas. If you look at the calendar that is quick because there was a weekend in there, plus I didn't get all of my shipping info to her until the 18th. That means around Christmas time I had it in less then 4 days. I will never buy from another, ever! RADHIKA YOU ROCK!!! Thank you ""MIKES SMOKE SHOP"" for making this the single best online transaction I've ever had and for treating me like a human & not just another phone call. You guys took that extra step the whole time. Your friend, Corey : )

I just moved out to Hollywood from Texas. I had to go for my job test last week. Went to Mike's after reading their reviews. There was this girl name Radhika who explained me all the steps and what i had to do before my test. This girl knew everything she was talking about. She had patience and answered all my questions. Guess what Radhika, i passed my test.......... Went back to the shop and found out that she doesn't work there anymore. Just wanted to say thanks a lot. Good luck to u wherever u r girl.

If you need a Bubbler a pipe, or a Vaporizer like I did, come here ~ Drove 45 minutes north to get there but I highly recommend. Hopefully Sirini will be working when you go because he was very helpful and knowledgeable . He makes me want to go back next time I am in need. I've always used a bubbler or pipe but just heard about a vaporizer. Sirini (please forgive me if I got that spelling wrong) told me what I needed to know to get started on this new form of smoking (at least new for me) It's only been a couple of days and I think I miss the smoke part of smoking a bubbler a little, but I don't miss the aftersmell and the mess. Vaporizer seems like a cleaner way to smoke. I guess it will less harmful on my lungs and the buzz could be a lil more intense with a vaporizer. Too early to tell - more experimentation needed ~ Go to Mike's

I found this shop by accident while walking the blvd on a Friday night. I will be back. They have beautiful art glass pipes and miles of cases full of pipes you can actually use. The store is large, clean and inviting. If you need it you will find it here at a reasonable price.
I needed help finding a pipe that could be used by my cousin who is paraplegic and smokes laying down on his side. Because he has to tilt the pipe so far over, water leaks out of the carb hole. This has been a problem longer than the sales clerk (Ashley) has been alive. She knew just what to recommend and the problem is solved.

Due to unfortunate circumstances my water pipe broke. It was a very expensive piece. There weren't any places in Texas to do the repair. I called a couple of shops in Cali, but none of the could repair my ph(x). I was ready to count my losses and buy another pipe. Then, I heard about Mike's smoke shop. Called them up, expecting them not to be of any help, and the guy said he could do it for a reasonable price. I told they guy I was from out of state and he said no problem. He kept me up to date through out the whole process. The pipe was returned to me today and it is better than new. Thats right better than when I bought it. Theses guys really helped me out and I'd recommend them to everyone.

The staff at Mike?s Smoke Shop will give you all the personal attention you need, and will explain the answer to every question you have. You'll love the experience, the prices, and the friendly staff. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel like this could be an art museum. The selections of beautifully sculpted pipes are displayed like fine works of art. You?ll find great value for every budget. I?m NOT an employee; I?m a very satisfied customer. If you are ever in the Hollywood area, spend some time at Mike's Smoke Shop. You'll discover a truely unique shopping experience.

Ever since my doctor recommended me to vaporize instead of smoking, i started researching online about vaporizers, the volcano which seemed to be the right choice is no where to be found, something to do with the U.S customs, so the next best stuff was vapor Brothers, simple yet effective vaporizer, and i think it is locally made. i just got mine from mikes smoke shop in hollywood that too at 2 am, we almost passed this museum as some one rightly called it. They showed me all the other vaporizers they had, but ofcourse no volcano, so i ended up buying the vapor brothers hands free, for 170 dollars after taxes. fired it up as soon as i got home and oh my god ! this stuff rocks, my stuff tastes so good and i am not wasting any product and as the dude workin there said - tastes like burnt popcorn :)
well if you are looking for glass or smoking products of any kind this is the place.i was simply amazed by the range of glass pipes and water pipes and by the way i got a one on one education about glass and roor's from this guy srini whom i have nicknamed the bongologist.amazing customer service and the atmosphere is chill.nobody forces you to buy stuff.i highly recomend this place.
ok i am going to try to post a review for the second time, i came across mikes while i was franctically trying to find a place on the blvd to fix my broken RooR, one week and i had my baby back looking brand spanking new, half the price the other shop quoted me. and thats not all the largest selection of ""waterpipes"" i have ever seen. before coming here i went to this place on wilcox called hollywood crossroads/junction. what lured me in was this huge sign posted outside""we are glass blowers"" , pls dont buy this B.S, these clowns know a little abt glass, the cliam to fix and make glass pieces, but the truth is that they don't. While i was waiting to talk to some1 abt my repair an arabic guy came in with a bunch of pipes and thinking he worked there i asked him abt fixing mine, he said that he was an independant blower in north hollywood, then he told me little scoop on these hustlers, they claim to be glass blowers but the fact was that he did all their repairs and that they buy their stuff from different glass blowers. after talking to the owner who was trying hard to act lika brutha and was trying desperately to sell me a Zob, after giving me stories that RooR was out of buisness. later i got a quote of $150 to fix my 7 mil RooR, i was not feeling this dude so i started exploring other shops, Mike's smoke shop not only fixed it in a week but also did it for half the amount, and as i said never have i seen such headies and such a store. i felt it was like a walmart for smoking accessories, also we chiled with my buddies at mike's hookah lounge and got hooked on this unbelievable hookah called starbuzzz...heavenly . peace

this is the spot for all u RooR lovers, I am from Ohio and am used to head shops being a hole in the wall, and back home ask for a RooR and no one has a clue, but here I saw literally about a 100 of these bad boys. Much said if u ever wanna smoke like a pro get a RooR, u will thank me, and while u are there check out Illadelph and Urban Myth pieces.

So it was late at night and i was freaking out my work had sent me an email to get tested early next morning, as i was being promoted to a manager, so i started to cruize down the blvd to see if any smoke shops were open, first i stumbled on this massive but shady looking joint, the guy down there did not know anything. so i went further and came across Mike's smoke shop, and not only did they have each and every detox in the market the guys knew anything and everything abt this stuff, i ended up getting a brand called Strip this stuff was hardcore, i just found out that i passed my test and to celebrate i am going to treat myself to a badd a@* piece from my new friends at Mike's. You guys saved my life, cheers.
