The Smokey Joe’s Café Story

It’s chic. It’s classy. And it’s happening in Hervey Bay. Smokey Joe’s Cafe is an exciting entertainment concept started in the USA in the 1940’s and 50’s. The cafe was a diner frequented by recording executives and talent scouts, where up-and-coming hopefuls were always keen to take to the stage and give an impromptu performance in the hope that someone in the audience would ‘discover’ them.

With a wonderful location at Ramada in the Hervey Bay marina precinct the brand new Smokey Joe’s Cafe provides a delightful ambiance to wine and dine in, with quality live entertainment on Thursdays through to Saturdays for a fun filled elegant atmosphere.

Smokey Joe’s Cafe Hervey Bay has truly embraced the global Smokey Joe’s Café Corporation Triple E Standard, Energy – Entertainment – Elegance.

As well as regular entertainment, quality new talent will be actively scouted for at Smokey Joe’s Café.  Our goal is that in time, new talent will automatically come here to gain recognition. This sets the scene for an exciting atmosphere of stylish dining and drinking amidst the sights and sounds of live performances.
