Smokey Kudu内部隐秘而极具质感， 座位环绕在中央马蹄形吧台和通高的酒柜周围。带黑色橡木框的矩形镜子装点着四周的墙面。酒吧的设计灵感源于19世纪早期欧洲的火车站咖啡馆。其特色是通高的黄铜玻璃陈列柜和带扇贝形边缘的意大利玫瑰石吧台。

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 19th-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. To complete the look an almost 2-metre high Murano glass chandelier, hand sourced in the Venice region is hanging in the centre of the arch glaring a warm light to the venue.
