Singapore, October 3rd 2014 – Get the best of both worlds at Hero’s, a live music venue and live sports bar set to make its mark on the burgeoning Boat Quay area six days week from its grand opening weekend October 10th and 11th.
Brought to you by the same folks behind Boat Quay’s popular Mogambo Bar & Restaurant, the sprawling 2,500sq ft. venue, located in a prime spot on Circular Road, is decorated in a contemporary yet timeless Old West Saloon style. It boasts brick and stone wall fixtures, and dark recycled woods with steampunk accents. Longhorn skulls, saddles and other paraphernalia adorn the walls, lending to an authentic Wild West feel.
Great news for beer aficionados, too: One of Hero’s unique features is its one-of-a-kind VIP area, where patrons will be able to pour their own ice-cold draught beer right at their tables. Each of the six booths within the VIP area is equipped with two draught-beer taps. The volume of beer consumed will be tracked electronically and displayed in real-time on a table-top tablet display.
Groups which guzzle at least 15 litres of golden ale in one night will join the Most Wanted Outlaws Leaderboard. Record-breaking drinkers will be immortalised in Hero’s history and win a free bottle of bourbon or tequila.
On the self-serve draught-beer concept, Mr Rick Bower, Hero’s managing director said:
“Being able to just help yourself and top up your own and your friends’ draught beer without having to leave your table or call over a waiter or waitress will make a great night out even better.”
Besides its draught beer selection, Hero’s has a fully-stocked bar, and its menu features a plethora of customised shooters such as the deadly Tres Amigos, Kill Bill and Silver Bullet, as well as delicious cocktails like Hero’s Mojito and the classic Old-Fashioned to appeal to every taste.
From the kitchen, home-grown gourmet burger company BERGS serves up mouth-watering burgers and Tex-Mex favourites like Hero’s Quesadillas and Cajun Chicken Strips – perfect, no-frills grub to enjoy while watching sports or while listening to your favourite tunes played live.
Indeed, hoping to revive the live music scene in Boat Quay, Hero’s will feature a seven-piece resident band, Vevo, from the Philippines, playing rock music from the 1970s and beyond six nights a week. There will also be plenty of opportunities for aspiring and experienced musos to show off their chops on Open Mic or jam nights, which will be launched in the near future.
“Having operated Mogambo for the last 3 ½ years, I have always felt that a dedicated live music place was the one thing that was really lacking in the area,” Mr Bower said. “We are proud to be able to provide that entertainment at Hero’s and at a more affordable price than other parts of town like Clarke Quay.”
Look out also for various theme parties at both Hero’s and Mogambo throughout the year, including the bars’ annual Halloween blowout. Both bars are available for private events.
