I believe Motilal Banarsidass still has a shop there: Chowk, Below Central Bank, Kabir Road, Kabir Road

Chaukhambha Orientalia K.37/109,Gopal Mandir Lane,Near Golghar,, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh 221001

Some general bookstores that have a good selection of Indological books, some of which might be in Sanskrit are:

Universal Books D 40/60 Gowdowlia (south) Lakshmanpura, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh 221001

Harmony Books B. 1/158 Assi Ghat, Varanasi
One of my favorites down on Assi Ghat where there's always a chance of running into well-known Indologists chatting with the very knowledgeable owner Rakesh Singh.

Indica Books - also on Assi Ghat just up from Harmony.  They also have a shop not far from Universal books up in Gowdowlia: Sonapura Rd, Bhelupur, Varanasi

There might be some shops around Sampurnanand Sanskrit University but I don't know the area well.

Dear Colleagues,

Can anyone recommend some good (Sanskrit) bookshops in Varanasi?

I will be there next week.

Best Wishes,
