About

Alcove embraces smoking rituals as an enrichment of daily living. Our inventory features thoughtfully designed glass and ceramic smoking accessories that are pleasing to behold and a pleasure to use, along with other covetable goods that appeal to all five senses: handcrafted kitchenware, inspiring self-care, captivating books, and special wearables.

Alcove was created by husband and wife team Allie Pisarro-Grant and Alex Smith in 2018 to bring their mutual love of craft and ritual together, building upon their decades of experience in the NYC hospitality, publishing, creative and retail industries to pursue a collaborative venture.

Visit our storefront in Manhattan's Lower East Side for loving customer service, personal recommendations, and a tactile experience. Our store features handmade architectural details crafted out of a sustainable building material known as Hempcrete that we would love to tell you more about. While you're in the neighborhood, we recommend you also visit Russ and Daughters Café for knishes, Blue Stockings Books for radical literature, Babeland for sex-positive shopping, Mr. Taka for ramen, and Cafe Vita for espresso and cold brew.
