As bikers, my friends and I are always looking for a place where bike parking is not an issue, food is good and the environment is chill-out. With the onslaught of cafes and F&B establishments opening in Singapore, you will be hard-pressed not to find a place you enjoy, biker or non-biker friendly.
Which brings me to my next point about Hogs Bar Restaurant at Joo Chiat Road. Not to be mistaken with Hog’s Breath Cafe, this restaurant-bar was set up by bikers for bikers, and is one of the few perfect chill-out joints (be it a full-on meal or a refreshing drink) for bikers who enjoy wining and dining 5-feet away from their bikes. It’s like that bar in the TV show Cheers, where everybody knows your name, at Hogs Bar, the service is warm and inviting. There’s even bike washing and detailing service within the compound!
First, the food. Here’s what we ordered that night.
Taking up the entire space of what used to be a bungalow from the 1920s, Hogs Bar has both alfresco and an air-conditioned indoor dining area. The indoor dining area also features a pool table!
When you enter the indoor space, you are greeted by a bar counter with a view that looks onto the parking area downstairs. Diners who are so inclined may choose to enjoy their cuppa while appreciating their rides or enjoy the ‘live’ telecasts of sports on the telly.
Walls adorned with images of V-twins and Harley Davidson posters should give one a clear indication of the theme of this restaurant. Some panels are even fitted out with diamond plate to add that industrial flavour.
Overall, this is a great place for bikers and non-bikers to gather. Remember to bring along your camera, you never know what rides you might encounter parked in the compound, just like the one below!
If you are ever in the area, do check out Hogs Bar located at 382 Joo Chiat Rd Singapore 427622, or log onto their Facebook page for updates.
