These are the days we live for: post-park evenings celebrated on decks that offer a perfect combination of sun, shade, snacks and beverages. If you haven’t already discovered Smokin’ Iron, at Hotel Jackson, it is the ultimate deck dining experience. Why? Because at Smokin’ Iron, it’s all deck dining, all the time. Picture tables bordered by bountiful potted plants, fireplaces surrounded by community seating arrangements and live music every single night. Conveniently located downtown, but tucked back just enough to escape the noise of Town Square’s hustle and bustle, Smokin’ Iron is more like a friendly backyard engagement than a restaurant in the heart of downtown Jackson. There is plenty of seating arrangements for groups of all sizes, and the community feel encourages conversations with soon-to-be friends.
If the atmosphere drew us in, the cocktail flights kept us there. We’re all becoming more familiar with craft beer flights, but what about a variety of cocktails? Smokin’ Iron is paving the way with flights of mimosas, blood mary’s, margaritas or sangria. From each category, you get to pick three different flavors, featuring fresh squeezed juices. If beer is still your style, you can get a variety of local brews with a flight of six, in seven ounce pours, for $18. At Smokin’ Iron, no one has to pick just one.
In addition to the fresh squeezed juices featured in their cocktails, Smokin’ Iron is incorporating an increasing number of house-made products into its food menu. Think house-made chips, wing sauces, hummus and more. The beauty is in the details, and nothing is remiss at Smokin’ Iron. If music is your draw, you can get your fill nightly from 6:30-9 p.m., featuring Tucker Smith. Take your gathering to Smokin’ Iron, for the flights, the music and the little details that keep us coming back for more.
