Just wanted to drop a quick thank you to everyone who attended our new bar opening party! Beers were consumed, delicious bar snacks were enjoyed, and the new bar broken in with style. We've added a sweet timelapse below of the project while racing Chef Erik's (professional) beer pouring techniques. For any of you interested there's also some pics we snapped from the event. See you soon!
The Switzer Wine dinner was one of our most successful wine Dinner's to date at SMOKE. We had a blast meeting Coach Barry, and hope everyone had as great a night as we did. Here are some pics from the event. Thanks to everyone who attended--we'll see you next time!
Sometimes you need to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. It’s time for a new bar at SMOKE and she’s nearing completion. SMOKE’s bar is known as one of the top bars in Tulsa where you can enjoy quality local local fare while you imbibe in a classic, romantically rustic setting. Not only will this be a major facelift to the look and feel of this warm space, but the upgrade will also add 4 more seats at the bar. Of course, the beautiful brick archways that separate the bar from the dining room will always remain as they are. But, the physical bar itself will now provide more seating and more privacy while also eliminating unwanted noise and light from the kitchen.
So, whether you’ve been enjoying libation at the old bar since it was installed for the former Bourbon Street Cafe many years ago or whether you haven’t yet set foot in this gorgeous 100 year old building - we invite you to pull up a chair and order your favorite cocktail, craft beer, or glass of wine soon. We also invite you to join us on May 7th at 6:00pm for the Grand Bar Opening Party. We will be pouring FREE Marshall special edition beer until it’s gone. Sign up on the event page through our Facebook and we will see you there!
