Smoky Pallet Free House

Located on Whangamata's main street (Port Road) near the fire station, Smoky Pallet is a relaxed bar, restaurant and function venue by day and a vibrant night spot after the sun goes down. 

Whatever your idea of a good time is, Smoky Pallet has something for everyone.... From a bouncy castle and raspberry lemonades for the kids, to a 9 machine gaming lounge, big screen TVs, pool tables, regular live entertainment, sunny outdoor deck areas, and a great selection of food and drinks for adults of any age!


The Bar

Smoky Pallet has 2 separate bars. The main bar is the centerpiece of our venue and offers a wide range of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. With a wide selection of international, mainstream and craft beers, plus an outstanding selection of wine, cocktails, and spirits for the sophisticated!

The Good George Bar is open in the Summer and for functions of up to 40 people all year round. This bar pours a variety of premium beers and ciders from our mates at Good George Brewing as well as offering a great mainstream variety.

Being a Free House means Smoky Pallet is able to stock the widest range of beers, wine and spirits in town - we're sure you'll find something to suit your taste!
