We pair this with warm Southern hospitality, New Orleans culture and, fine spirits and wines from the old & new world.

“Struttin’ With Some Barbecue” by Louis Armstrong And His Hot Five (1927)


Open seven days a week, NOLA Smokehouse and Bar is a cocktail bar with an American whiskey focus and a variety of relaxed and refined dining options. From a bar menu, private dining through to shared menus for individuals to large groups. The restaurant has two large smokers and a live-fuel pit to create authentic Louisiana -style meat and seafood dishes.

The interior is inspired by the colour and character of New Orleans architecture and has been beautifully designed by award winning firm, Luchetti Krelle . The venue boasts views overlooking Pyrmont’s Jones Bay Wharf and takes advantage of the Western setting sun, making NOLA a perfect location for long lunches, sunset drinks and everything else after dark.
