Loved all the thought and little details that went into this meal. The sharing element of the meal with a round table of 10 was fun when the whole shoulder of lamb came out, encased in a layer of salt that we had to tap at with a hammer to get to the good stuff. It felt like a Sunday roast with the family. My friends wanted to get the last train back home, and I was so sad that I would miss dessert. But Paul the owner of dram and smoke (and a great beard), boxed us up some slices of beautiful lemon tart and didn't let us leave without a handful of raspberries too. The bartender Tom needs a shout out too, who was showing us videos of French rap and making rounds of free shots! Thank you for treating us like old friends, and giving us such a good night x

This is my second time at a Dram and Smoke event - what can I say...they've done it again! So many of these kinds of foodie pop ups are all style over substance but these guys REALLY know how to cook. Everything was bursting with flavour, top quality and innovative. Plus the usual lovely service, fun company at the table and great drinks. Heaven.

We recently went to the Dram and Smoke event at Swan Wharf and had a fantastic night! The food was fantastic (including my veggie meal) and the games provided in the bar area were a great way to interact with everyone. Top night!

Great food, location and atmosphere. The team were fantastic and managed to accommodate all of our dietary requests. We were there to celebrate a friends coming nuptials and had a fabulous time. I would highly recommend it, and look forward to the next location.

Great location, welcome cocktail hit the spot, very well organised, we both loved the food and enjoyed the communal table set up. Congrats to Paul and Nick and the rest of the team.

Cracking little venue by the canal, good fun with the games before the food was served. The salted lamb was out of this world! Great to meet a very funny bunch of people at our table. Would love to go back sometime!

The food was amazing and we loved the tartan blankets to wrap ourselves up in when the warehouse got cold. Really great venue and mix of people around the table, count us in for the next Dram and Smoke event!

Very delicious welcome cocktail and games to keep you entertained. One of the cocktails was unavailable the night we went which was disappointing. However, food was great and ambience was good.

Really great venue, Overlooking the canal and olympic stadium. Loved the bar area with lots of bar games (and a beer pong table!) The food was nice. Not amazing but definitely enough and of good quality. The fun-time on the night def depends on who is on your table! Overall worth the money and a good experience

They had me at the monkey shoulder. Fantastic night! The welcome cocktails were delicious and the venue just the right amount of edge. Food = yum. Potted duck was easily my favourite. Will look out for the next dram and smoke for sure.

- Food was reasonably average in quality. - Starters we're tiny, the main was big. - Venue had fun games in the bar area. - Venue was uncomfortably cold - Music was too loud for a sensible volume conversation - Overall it was very average, I wouldn't go back but I'm glad I went.

Lovely event, very welcoming and great food. Lamb should be carved off the salt board. Venue was excellent and so were the drinks. Not an easy location to get to but no problem for Uber. Bravo.
