Sleek and intimate, Smokey Kudu revolves around a central horseshoe bar with a sky-high back bar set against an arched mirror geometrically framed with dark oak wood.

The bar design draws inspiration from early 20th-century continental train station cafes featuring a brass over-head with glistering glass display and an Italian rose stone countertop with scallop edge in contrasting marbles.

Green velvet booths with deep burgundy marble-topped tables are set against burnt umber walls humbly showing the textures of old bricks and arched metal structures. Low tinted mirrors and hand-glazed tiles in a diamond configuration are adding a sparkle to the cosy seating area.
