The Smoking Cork and Stouts and Stogies are a pair of family owned businesses in the Alpine Mall in downtown Lake Placid!

The Smoking Cork

As the only wine and spirit shop on Lake Placid's Main Street, we opened our doors to business July 23, 2011, and have been expanding our services and inventory ever since. Offering a unique and personalized approach to shopping for wine and spirits, we hope our small boutique-style shop offers an alternative to the ever present warehouse-fashioned liquor stores in New York state. Our hands-on service provides customers with knowledgable confidence when buying our products, taking the guess work out of the vast world of alcoholic beverages.

  • Organic and low calorie spirits

Stouts and Stogies

Located across the hall from the Smoking Cork, Stouts and Stogies is the only store of its kind in Lake Placid.

We have the only walk-in humidor in Lake Placid, with hundreds of fine cigars to choose from! We also offer a selection of craft beers in bottles and on draft to take home in one of our unique growlers. You'll also find a selection of specialty and gourmet food to go with your beer and cigar choice!
