Our Mission

Bringing Innovation, Trust, and a Sound Experience to Every Customer Everywhere

Our Story​

In 2014, Area 51 Smoke Shop launched its first location in Midlothian, VA. It was founded with the dedicated objective of providing customers with an array of recognized name brands. We specialize in unique, broad selections of quality eCigs, vaporizers, glass, hookahs, and novelties paired with fantastic customer service and competitive prices. We strive to provide the biggest and best one-stop-shop, and  friendly experiences for our customers – our number one priority, 100% guaranteed!

(P.S. We love to educate our customers when necessary, and often learn something new from them, too.)

Area 51 is proud to announce that with hard work, employee dedication, and customer satisfaction we earned the coveted featured spot in the local alternative newspaper Style Weekly, and was unanimously

voted “2018 #1 Best Smoke Shop in Richmond!”

Subsequently, on 4/20/2019, Area 51 celebrated the grand opening of our second location on Hull Street. Now, conveniently serving Midlothian, Powhatan, Chester, and Amelia customers.

What is the key to our success? Something for everyone! Simply put, Area 51 offers wide product choices ranging from ordinary to extraordinary zany designs. Visit us soon to personally experience the thrill of exploring over 15,000 products displayed under glow-in-the dark and flashing LEDs. It’s an experience you won’t forget!
