BUSHWICK — A new vape lounge is giving guests a taste their of childhood.
Master Piece Smoke Shop and Vape Lounge, at 247 Wilson Ave., offers more than 100 flavors of e-cigarette liquid, with options that mimic the nostalgic flavors of Swedish Fish, Teddy Grahams, and cereal and milk, said owner Mike Chang.
The lounge features a bar, a luxe leather couch and a vintage arcade game, all added so that locals are encouraged to hang out and try different flavors, Chang said. Visitors looking to tip a few back can also bring their alcohol.
"It’s a bar experience, but with vaping," he said.
Chang has another shop in Greenpoint at 130 India St., also called Master Piece, which is half as small and more of a retail location.
The Bushwick outpost is intended as more of a place to hang out, he said.
Aside from all the e-cigarette flavors, the shop also offers 30 brands of cigars, smoking accessories, pipes, hookahs and vaporizers.
The interior, which is designed with Chang's "Great Gatsby"-style antiques obsession, will also be available for rent. Already, a bone cancer fundraiser has been booked for the lounge, Chang said.
"I want to build a community in Bushwick," he said.
Vaporizers cost about $45, and the juices cost $15 for 15 millileters, an amount that is equivalent to about 200 cigarettes. Many people start vaping as an alternative to smoking cigarettes.
Master Piece will be hosting a grand opening party on Saturday starting at 5 p.m. and going into the night. There will be free food, free drinks and giveaways.
