Bar Fly: The Smoking Panda


Sounds like the Bar Fly babe Amie Barbeler found her spiritual home this week...



I was eyeing up the maple and bacon-infused bourbon when a suit-clad silver fox sidled up to me and said: “If you drink that, every man in this bar will fall madly in love with you.” I stared into his eyes for a minute… and shuddered, opting for a cocktail instead.



The Smoking Panda has a hip L.A. vibe to it, with a retro Chinese twist. The staff are friendly and flirty; there are jellyfish swimming in the walls; and it’s the kind of place where you just know you’re going to leave with a great story.



If you’d rather a decent doughnut in your life than a man, let yourself fall madly in tipsy love with the Doughnut Martini ($17) – rum, bourbon, vanilla and butterscotch, garnished with deep fried dough. Soak up the liquid doughnut deliciousness with a few juicy grilled pork, maple bacon and chilli sliders ($7 each).



Love’s overrated… but The Smoking Panda certainly isn’t.
