OUR STORY

We renovated, created and cooked and The Smoking Panda was born.

Fusing LA hip with all the charm of a retro Chinese eatery, The Smoking Panda is cool, quirky and helluva a good time.

Drop by The Hotel Coronation on Park Street for world class cocktails, a cracking wine list and irresistible pan-asian bites…

See you at the bar!

 

DRINK

The Smoking Panda has recently undergone a baptism by bitters and has now been reborn classier and more worldly than ever.

With the largest collection of bitters of any bar in Australia, and a backbar that spans over six metres, we are relaunching ourselves as the number one spot in Sydney to get an Old Fashioned.

261 different spirits. 232 different bitters. Over 18 billion possibilities.

  • “Try The Smoking Panda if you’re looking for an unpretentious bar in Sydney that channels cool without being ‘too cool for school’. The winning combination of cocktail theatrics, delicious bar bites and friendly service will ensure your visit is only one of more sure to follow.”

    WEEKEND NOTES
  • “With its decent selection of poisons (and pretty damn attractive bartenders too), there’s no reason anyone can’t spend quality time with The Panda.”

    CONCRETE PLAYGROUND
  • “Great unique atmosphere with awesome cocktails.”

    MIKE W
  • “Divine soft shell crab slider, awesome range of dumplings and the coconut deep fried ice cream is the best thing ever!”

EAT

The Smoking Panda’s menu draws inspiration from suburban Chinese restaurants.

With contemporary takes on favourite Chinese eats and finger food, the menu is available all night long to coincide with the bar’s opening hours,
making The Smoking Panda the perfect spot for a post work session or midnight bite.

Whatever the hour, the Panda aims to please.
