Smoke and Oak has won the NT Independent’s Best Cocktail Bar 2022 poll, after getting about 1700 votes out of the more than 4000 cast. Clearly with this volume of votes, Territorians want people to know where the best cocktail bar is.

Tucked away inside Nirvana on Smith St, as you go in you will notice a ‘booze’ sign, which is your direction to the Territory’s best cocktails.

Smoke and Oak is focused on serving the best dark spirits, bold wines and craft beers. It is perhaps most well-known for its bestseller cocktail: the Rum Swizzle. Owner Jason Hanna says that any cocktails with whisky are popular.

“A little bit of sherry goes a long way, trust me!” Mr Hanna said. “For me, I’m loving the Paper Plan designed by Aussie ex-pat Sam Ross. I just love its tartness and colour, and you will always have me frothing with a Boilermaker (craft beer and a shot of whisky to match).”

Smoke and Oak has an ever-changing cocktail list working with many different suppliers, particularly whisky brands. They take advantage of visiting brand ambassadors for industry training and consumer events.

Smoke and Oak is mulling over making a new signature cocktail in honour of the Best Cocktail Bar award.

“It might make a good old Australian jungle bird riff. and call it a bin chicken,” Mr Hanna said.

The bar currently has a special Whiskey Wednesdays, and will be doing fortnightly cocktails after it has settled on a new menu.

Smoke and Oaks management also loves supporting cocktail events such as education masterclasses for up and coming bartenders.

“There will be more things to come. You will just need to pay attention to our Facebook and Instagram pages so you can book in,” he said.
