Our location maybe Leeds but our heart is in New Orleans. The name Smokestack is taken from the 1965 Blue Note LP by Andrew Hill and of course the raucous R’n’B tune ‘Smokestack Lightnin” by Howlin’ Wolf.
The humble signage above our door states “Smokestack * Funk * Soul * Blues * Jazz”
Don’t take this lightly, because we mean it!
Our cocktail menu takes inspiration from New Orleans ‘the birthplace of the cocktail’. You’ll find twists on forgotten classics alongside Smokestack originals.
The extensive cocktail list matches our fine collection of premium bourbons, rums, tequilas and whiskies, along with a range of quality craft beers and wines.
