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 cocktails:

Smoking Panda

Get smoked with Panda’s signature – sweet, sour and smoky with Drambuie, Bulleit Bourbon, fresh lemon juice, ginger and spiked lemons.

Fifty Fifty Martini

A delicate martini with equal parts Tanqueray Gin and lovely notes of Lillet Vermouth.

Red Hook

Inspired by the badasses of Brooklyn. Bulleit Bourbon, Punt Es Mes & Luxardo Maraschino are stirred down and served straight up.

Boulevardier – on tap

A triple threat combining Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Campari and Antica Formula, served over ice.

Negroni – on tap

A classic made for easy drinking. Campari, Tanqueray gin and Antica Formula , served over a big-arse rock with an orange twist.

EAT

The Smoking Panda’s menu, created by acclaimed chef Danny Russo and chef Roy Ner, 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.
