Capital Vape Supply opens on U Street

1007 U Street, NW

Apparently people like vaping. New vape lounges seem to be opening up all over the place. I’ve now seen them in Adams Morgan, H Street NE, Petworth, and Georgetown. Any others?

Out of curiosity do any readers vape?

    hmm, there’s vaping in p-worth? man, it’s really blown up. I’ve tried it, but eh, I’d rather smoke or not smoke at all…

      like the “coolness” of smoking comes form the fact that it’s fire, and it’s bad for you – that’s why it looks cool. the vaping removes both of these, and just makes you look like kind of a dork. but hey, w/e’s man

      • Vaping isn’t about “coolness” or whatever. It’s about delivery of a drug (nicotine) and the pleasure inducing side effects of said drug. I think the jury is still out on the health effects of vaping versus smoking real cigarettes. Personally, I prefer vaping due to lack of stench and feeling MUCH better the next morning. Still, it’s something I rarely do. I buy a single use Blu vape cigarette once every 4 or 5 months.
        I’ve had a few friends quit cigarettes due to vaping. After a few days, they felt much better. They regained their sense of smell, enhanced taste buds, and generally felt more energetic. I think smokers are willing to take a chance on vaping considering we know that actual cigarettes cause cancer and death. YMMV.

  • Vaping is more unhealthy than smoking, studies have shown that 4x the amount of Benzene is found in the urine of vapers than traditional smokers. I don’t understand how we can have THESE lounges but not Pot lounges.

    There is also a place at M and 18th – where my husband usually goes but it will be better to have a closer Vape shop..
    IMO vaping is definitely the lesser of the two evils. Ideally I would prefer the husband to quit nicotine altogether, but with a toddler vaping is 100% better than the smoke that used to be all over him (even with the constant washing hands/face/changing his clothes, etc) and the harm it is doing to his lungs!

  • Oh no. It’s all over Seattle. All the plaid clad bearded man bunned tattooed hipsters are vaping here.

    • Strangely we seem to have a dearth of manbuns here in the district (and an overabundance of pompadours).

    Another sign that U Street = Adams Morgan.
