About Smokin' Aces
Opened in November 2010 in the Triangle area of Bournemouth, Smokin’ Aces Cocktail Bar & Whiskey Lounge quickly became infamous for its party atmosphere, high quality cocktails and inclusive “come-one-come-all” policy. Staffed by a team of skilled, award-winning bartenders, Smokin’ Aces was one of the first independent venues in years to re-invest in live music in Bournemouth, a policy which is continued to this day. In 2017, Smokin’ Aces won the Imbibe award for UK’s Best Whiskey List and Smokin’ Aces continues to receive awards, plus national and international recognition as a leading bar within the industry and an integral part of Bournemouth nightlife.
Lovely chilled atmosphere and friendly service! We really enjoyed our "last night of freedom" at Smokin Aces. We will be back as soon as we can.
The best “real” bar in Bmth
Lovely lady served us, defo go back, hoping you have more food options next time.
Really enjoyed our booking on Saturday. Drinks are to a high standard and the service was great as always. Really adapted to the new rules and felt safe and clean.
Had an absolutely wonderful evening at Smokin’ Aces, the food and drinks were incredible and the service was amazing! Lovely friendly staff and a very nice atmosphere ❤️
covid and all it was a great experience. Just the type of bar you want when you like a good drink and good music(not radio hits). Staff is cool as well, surely more wild if covid wasn't around, we missed the opportunity to show in the pillar of shame haha.
We booked for Saturday night and was super excited by the statement that they don’t have a menu and you can have a chat with the barman about what you would like. Due to current circumstances that wasn’t the case and everything was pre batched with a menu which you had to order from. Would be good to update that on the website. Additionally we were sat downstairs and it was so hot. We only stayed for one drink due to being uncomfortably hot. Would love to go back when things are back to normal and ask to sit upstairs where it seemed a bit cooler.
So lovely! Had a really great night would recommend to anyone
Smokin' Aces is full of character and atmosphere, I found the venue on line and decided to take my husband as he's a whiskey drinker. The staff were friendly and my husband really enjoyed his old fashioned whiskey. will definitely go back when next in Bournemouth,
Great bar, lovely atmosphere and lovely barmen!
Had a great time on Saturday night. Great atmosphere and music, and staff were really warm and friendly. Fantastic service with a smile, and probably the best Dark ‘n Stormys I’ve ever tasted!
Booked here thinking we can have an evening meal only coz they had a decent menu online. Didn’t realise and wasn’t told when booking that no food was being served.
Fantastic, tasty cocktails.
Awesome night. Great customer service and great atmosphere
Service was so lovely! 10/10 for everything :)
Great bar and atmosphere. We especially liked the music choices!
Amazing atmosphere. Completely COVID-19 safe. Friendly service. Can’t wait to visit again post Covid to watch some live music.
First time in smokin aces and will definitely be back again! Even though there was no live music the playlist made up for it.
This bar holds a special place in mine and my girlfriends heart. It was the highlight of our weekend away last year and it was the perfect ending to our night over a year later. We're not from Bournemouth and this bar is one of the reasons we love visiting so much. The atmosphere is something I've not experienced in a bar before, especially downstairs. The staff have amazingly good spirits and a superb cocktail menu and whiskey selection. Me and my partner are so glad we found this bar because it will forever be our favourite.
Had an awesome evening celebrating! The guys ran everything on point and made us feel very welcome and looked after. Awesome night, thank you Oscar & Dejion!
Alice was amazing 😍 she helps everyone with the app and how to do everything. Music was good. Not sure the app reflects all the choices they have but Alice helps you out.
Brilliant place and staff were awesome.
