Propaganda: A 70s-Inspired Oasis of Art and Libations

In the heart of Smyrna, where nostalgia dances with creativity, Propaganda emerges—a cocktail bar that pays homage to the vibrant spirit of the 1970s. Co-owners Heather Tazza and Mr. Wattson have woven together their artistic visions to create a haven where libations and aesthetics collide.

Located above Zucca Bar & Pizzeria in the bustling Smyrna Market Village, Propaganda is more than a watering hole; it’s an immersive experience. Wattson, a seasoned photographer who once helmed the now-closed Chocolate Shop—an art installation and lounge—brings his keen eye for visuals. Tazza, equally passionate about creativity, joined forces with Wattson to infuse the space with soul.

The 70s theme permeates every corner of Propaganda. Sensationalist propaganda from that era adorns the walls, capturing the zeitgeist of a tumultuous time. But there’s irony here—a twist that elevates the experience. Propaganda, the speakeasy, stands as a refuge from today’s relentless information onslaught. It invites patrons to disconnect from the noise, sip their drinks, and engage in genuine conversations.

Tazza explains, “We’re escaping the propaganda of today by embracing the past. Our mantra? ‘Think for yourself.’” And so, within these retro-inspired walls, guests find solace—a place where disco beats mingle with whispered secrets, and the clink of glasses drowns out the world’s chaos.

The libations themselves are works of art. Specialty cocktails pay homage to pivotal moments, iconic figures, and influential artworks from the 70s. Sip “The Watergate,” a Hemingway daiquiri infused with intrigue. Or perhaps an “Earth Day” espresso martini, celebrating environmental consciousness. For those seeking a harmonious blend of nostalgia and whimsy, the “Bohemian Rhapsody” disco lemonade beckons. And don’t miss “The Warhol,” a classic pomegranate martini—an ode to the legendary artist’s vibrant palette.
