We scour the bar scene to bring you the new and noteworthy – cool new bars and nightspots for you to try. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it!
You’ll be surprised at how large this putt-putt bar is! Holey Moley Golf Club is a two-storey space housing 27 holes of miniature golf, plus two bar areas and plenty of VIP tables that are great for groups of eight to 12 (starting from $788; redeemable on all food and drinks). The labyrinth of quirky, pop culture themed holes is fun to explore – everything from Mouse Trap, Pac-Man and Game of Thrones to Back to the Future and The Simpsons are represented. It’s especially fun when you’ve got your own caddy in tow. (She was there for us to order drinks and help us carry our clubs while we sipped and snacked!). Opt to play nine, 18 or 27 holes ($12/$24/$36 per person), and take breaks to eat off the green in between!
Every inch of this place is Insta-worthy, from the punny neon signs to each of the holes. With upbeat music and an atmosphere of nostalgia – plus great service – you’ll find yourself thrilled that you did something totally different with your night out!
The Chosen One:
Tequila, passionfruit and white chocolate make up my ultimate cocktail fantasy in the form of the Chocolate Passion ($19). Like most of the signature cocktails (over a dozen playful drinks match the bar’s light-hearted and nostalgic vibes to a tee; pun intended), this drink is definitely for those with a sweet-tooth. If you’re not into colourful, candy-topped bevvies, not to worry – there’s a wide array of spirits, wine and beer. The Electric Blue ($21) – blue curacao, Ketel One Citron, Don Julio Blanco Tequila, Cointreau and lemonade topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and a candy kebab, and a vanilla-frosted rim with Nerds candy – is another popular pick; I was far too full to take down this picture-worthy concoction, but would love to try it next time!
Bite on this:
The food is great for sharing (note: you’ll have to take a night off from your diet during your visit). We ordered the 30cm “Cheese and Thank You” Margherita pizza ($19) and it was perfect for four of us; larger groups can upgrade to the one-metre Mega Pizza. A variety of burgers, fries and hot dogs make up the rest of the menu, plus platters of all kinds. We ordered the “Cluck Yeah” platter ($88) – a whole chicken, six chicken skewers, half a kilo of chicken wings, and potato wedges; while we didn’t expect all of the chicken to be fried, it was absolutely delicious nonetheless.
Last but not least:
Kids are welcome to visit Holey Moley with accompaniment before 5pm; they’ve got a kids’ food menu available, too!
