Smoak Bar and Grill is the heart and soul of the stylish Malmaison Hotel, one of the first boutique hotels to open in the city and formerly an elegant 19th century warehouse.
Smoak offers iconic dishes with a modern twist and served with passion and personality. Think sublime steaks, the awesome MalBurger, locally inspired blackboard specials, and a wine list to make your mouth water.
Drop in during the day for a lunchtime menu starring locally sourced bread, generously filled sandwiches and salads or a full-blown grill dining for the famished. When night draws in, enjoy the sizzling steaks and spiced grills from Smoak’s delicious a la carte menu.
Smoak Bar and Grill is a feast for the senses and the best place in Manchester to indulge in top quality oak smoked steaks and fresh seafood.
The new a la carte menu is bursting with tempting new flavours and dishes from starter to dessert. If you’re a fan of seafood, you’ll be spoilt for choice. For starters, how about pan roasted sea scallops with pea puree, pancetta and morel mushrooms or fresh handpicked Devon crab with apple, cucumber and brown crab mayonnaise, to name but two?
For your main course, maybe something from Smoak’s signature grill – or will something else catch your eye? The choice of steaks is incredible. Pan roast Australian Black Angus New York strip steak is the star of the show, but there’s a selection of other dishes ready to steal the spotlight, including an incredible lobster risotto and succulent Iberico pork cutlets.
Add a couple of Smoak’s deliciously tempting sides such as truffle and Parmesan pomme frites, and green beans with feta & Dijon cream, and even the biggest appetites will be satisfied.
Save room for the indulgent choice of desserts which include hearty classics such as sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream and pecan caramel sauce, or a lighter option like affogato – but why not add a shot of Pedro Ximenez, Bailey’s or Amaretto to make it extra naughty!
Even the décor is served up a little differently at Smoak. It’s industrial and raw with a masculine edge, with a mix of intimate booths, banquettes and counter stools creating a relaxing atmosphere and plenty of places to enjoy your meal.
The staff are passionate about food, and really know their wines, so you’ll always find the perfect match for your meal.

Malmaison Manchester is one of the most stylish hotels in Manchester city centre, with 167 luxury rooms and 13 suites. It’s a stone’s throw from King Street and St Ann’s Square, not to mention two fairly famous football clubs.
Manchester’s first “bad-house” raised eyebrows when it opened in the 1990s and since undergoing a major refurbishment, Malmaison remains one of the city’s most desirable venues. The hotel’s long-established music industry links continue to attract artists passing through town. But beyond the iconic façade and the celeb-spotting, Malmaison’s main draw is its moody vibe – amplified by dark wood features and hues of deepest blue, red and purple. It feels like a secret hideaway smack bang in the centre of the hustle. Malmaison has never been a place that takes itself too seriously, either, and there’s an irresistible sense of fun to be found in the themed grill & bar, and the comedy shows piped through the speakers in the toilets.
