Our favourite watering-holes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. From the small and quaint, to the flashy, loud and contemporary. Hopheads, is an eclectic mish-mash of things to do, eat and most importantly, drink. Hopheads is a space that pours solid pints of beers on tap, which include a selection of craft beer that’s always on rotation.
There’s no airs about Hopheads and all they want is for you to have fun. Looking for and getting to Hopheads (if you haven’t been) is fun in itself. As you make your way to an area of town that you’ve probably never thought of visiting, follow the signs that’ll lead you down a spiral staircase.
Behold, you have arrived at Hopheads! The cavernous circular interior makes this spot quite special, and the capacity of the place is nice too. No more bumping shoulders shimmying to the restrooms!
Don’t expect mind-blowing revolutionary food at Hopheads, the dishes here are straightforward and hearty. Dishes such as the salted egg yolk pasta ($16.90) has been seen throughout Singapore, in fact it made us wonder why the trend hasn’t already died. However, Hopheads’ homage to the great salted egg yolk wave isn’t too shabby and has a nice hum of spiciness that gives the dish a bit more depth.
To get your arteries expanding and heart pumping a little faster, for fear of becoming a tad bit clogged, there’s the bacon burger ($18.90). A juicy 180g beef patty topped with caramelised bacon and an egg.
If that isn’t enough to have you clutching your chest there are always dishes to share, like the smoked salmon pizza ($21.90), also another dish that hardly needs any explanation. Thick slices of lavish smoked salmon over a bed of rocket (to balance the sin), oozy gooey cheese and tomato puree.
While the food offerings at Hopheads aren’t anything to get particularly excited about, they wash down well with the fine selection of craft beer on tap, anyway, it’s the fun and games that has us coming back!
So what sets Hopheads apart from all the other bars out there? It’s their collection of party-worthy games. With space at their disposal, Hopheads has been outfitted to keep customers entertained till last call.
You’ll find the usual darts and pool, but on top of that there’s beer pong, ping pong which is free to play (remember to share) and a whole array of board games like the infamous cards against humanity.
So while the rest of the F&B world jostles for your attention with newfangled dishes and “exclusive” and premium drink menus, you can count on Hopheads for some good ol’ no frills fun.
