Smokehouse Bar & Grill

Treat yourself to steak fresh off the grill and whisky-based cocktails at Smokehouse Bar & Grill. While Smokehouse classics headline the menu, the smoked cocktails are equally as enticing. In addition to the twist on classic cocktail favourites, the fruit-flavoured smoke completes your night of drinking. Among the signatures are two whisky-based cocktails, Grape & Gin and Red Apple. Gin lovers should go for Blush, a gin-based drink topped with soda. We recommend sitting by the bar adorned with gold and orange tones and contrasting rustic interior.
