The hottest trend in inhalation has swept the country into its sweet-smelling plume, and Savannah is no exception.
Out of the many vape shops that have popped up around town in the past year, discerning vapers have elevated Vape Savvy as their favorite outpost. The retail hangout recently relocated from downtown to Whitemarsh Island next to Wiley’s BBQ, offering an even larger selection of top-of-the line equipment and an e-liquid menu reminiscent of a hipster donut shop, with complex flavors like “Lenola Cream” and “Chocolate Peanut Butter Infused with Maple Pecans” crafted from scratch by resident e-juicemaster Bobby Goldner.
The new space is three times larger than the original, with a VIP lounge atmosphere featuring leather couches and a pool table for fostering the “mixing of the minds” that comes with vape culture.
“Vapers forge strong bonds,” Vape Savvy’s owner Jason Luu told us earlier this year.
“People are so thankful to be off cigarettes that they come together.”
Indeed, vaping has been hailed as way to reduce nicotine dependence since the amount of the addictive substance can be controlled. However, the habit is still subject to local smoking ordinances and federal regulations, and vapers continue to face ongoing criticism of their habit.
But vapers can puff with pride at Vape Savvy with a community of like-lunged folks who enjoy the tobacco-less life.
Says Luu: “There are no butts, no ashtrays to empty...this is a much cleaner lifestyle.”—Jessica Leigh Lebos
