Best Tobacco Shop
Smoke ‘N Brew

Forty percent smoke shop, 40% gift shop, 20% fantastic beer garden. That’s the formula owner/operator Chuck Floyd uses to describe the impeccable tobacco shop Smoke ‘N Brew on James Island. Floyd and partner Nick Como, high school friends who’ve been in business together for over 25 years, have fashioned Smoke ‘N Brew into a specialty store that caters to a wide audience. No matter who you’re shopping for, you will find the perfect gift for them at Smoke ‘N Brew. The collection of locally crafted glassware is a sight to behold. The T-shirts are hilarious. The beer and wine selections on tap are incredible, and the garden is beautiful. There’s even a stage for special events, like the recent 4-20 party. If you’re in Charleston wanting a drink or a smoke or just some nice vibes, you have one place to stop.
