Smokestack has been creating amazing memories for 15 years now, and they have no plans to stop. They’ve prepared a brand new, oh-so-tempting cocktail menu for the good people of Leeds, and they’re having a launch party to celebrate on Thursday 27th October 2022. The kicker? Cocktails will be just £1 on the night, and it’s first come, first served. It promises to be an absolute roadblock of a night, so here’s everything you need to know.

This legendary Leeds nightspot has two floors for carousing the night away, and that’s exactly what they’re planning to do on Thursday 27th October 2022 when they launch their new cocktails. There’s no need to book – they’re doing cocktails for a mere £1 from 5pm to 10pm, and you can have a table for 90 minutes! Get yourself some drinks, grab yourself a seat and get ready to boogie.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a regular or a first-timer, you need to know that at the New Orleans-inspired Smokestack you go hard or you go home. This is a place imbued with funk and rhythm that parties until 4am on the weekend and 3am every other day bar Monday. Home to famed Leeds DJ Chico Malo, there’s amazing music every night, regular live performances from the likes of the Haggis Horns and a dancefloor ready made for post-cocktail fun.

Get ready for heady concoctions

Whether you like sweet flavours or something strong and long, Smokestack’s new cocktail list isn’t messing about. The Milky Bar Kid is a grown-up take on the tastes of your childhood, white chocolate and vanilla Cariel vodka laced with blackberry liqueur and pineapple juice. There are even more memory-provoking flavours in the must-try Riverboat Casino, which evokes a mint choc ice with its combo of mint-infused Buffalo Trace bourbon, dandelion and burdock and mint ice cream.

When it comes to spritzes and long drinks, they’ve got you covered too. Blood Moon takes Aperol as a base but adds Beefeater blood orange gin, chartreuse and Sauvignon Blanc for a lip-smacking winner. In the mood for something punchy? Over the Garden Wall is aimed at those who love a Martini, pitching Reyka vodka against Cocchi vermouth and dill and lemon shrub. What could be better? Well, trying these tempting cocktails out for £1 at the launch party, that’s what!

Smokestack, 159A Lower Briggate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6LY. The new cocktail menu launch is on Thursday 27th October 2022, with £1 cocktails from 5pm to 10pm.
