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’s range of classic American cocktails has been given a touch of retro China and the result is smokin’ (quite often, literally…).

With a back bar housing over 65 bourbons, 50 rums and a serious range of whiskies and tequila, you’ll be hard pressed not to find the hard stuff you love.

The wine list is diverse and worldly, covering everything from local gold standards to the Nappa Valley and France’s most respected regions, (Oh la la).
The eclectic mix of craft beers and ciders will quench the thirst or prince and pauper alike.

Here is a collection of our signature Panda cocktails:

Smoking Panda

Get smoked with the Panda’s signature – Johnny Gold infused grapefruit, pineapple honey syrup, Grand Marnier, vinegar, star anise smoked with rosemary.

Pandamonium

Party like a Panda – Bulleit Rye Bourbon, lemon, agave syrup, chocolate bitters and egg white with a cinnamon dusting.

Devilish Panda

A devilishly delicious drink that combines sweet, salty and spicy – mixing Don Julio Blanco, Cointreau, passion fruit lime, simple syrup and tabasco with a salt rim.

Breakfast Panda

The breakfast of champions, Panda-style – Tanqueray gin, lime, berry jam, egg white, mint, and simple syrup.

Passionate Panda

One for the lovers – a fruity concoction of crème de peche and passionfuit with Pampero Blanco, agave and pineapple.

South Paw

Panda punch – Mixing Tanqueray Gin, elderflower, lime, cucumber and grapefruit and a forgiving kiss of yellow Chartreus.

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.
