A true beacon of glassy light tucked away in the heat of Las Vegas, Gorilla Radio Smoke Shop is built on the heartwarming tale of two guys who wanted to follow the American dream… and now they live it on the daily. Best friends since grade school, owners Mark and Felix decided to follow their passion for glass by opening up a head shop in a place where not a whole lot of real head shops exist. The store logo shows the two in caricature form, and I have to say it captures the friendly essence of the owners and their store.
