Old Boys Gallery is really a rogues gallery when it comes to international craft beers and delectable tapas. When it comes to beer, there’s literally walls of the stuff at this bar and restaurant in the Kampong Bahru area. Located in a former art space along Kampong Bahru Road, Old Boys Gallery has created a temple to the aesthetics and flavours of our hoppy favourites, matched perfectly with the Spanish small plate phenomenon (and a range of Asian fusion delicacies) that has taken Singapore by storm.
Please be noted that there is no smoking area in Old Boys Gallery
Prominent on Old Boys Gallery’s wall of beer – yes, there’s a whole wall to choose from, perfect for Singapore’s thirsty hopheads – is the famous family of Japanese Hitachino Nest beer. Dai Dai IPA, Espresso Stout, Red Rice, and the brilliantly named Extra High are just four of the varieties in stock at Kampong Bahru’s peerlessly geeky craft beer emporium. While the art of the bottled microbrew is the chief commodity here, Old Boys Gallery’s Kampong Bahru Road premises stay true to the space’s former function as an art space, offering art by emerging Singaporean artists for your visual pleasure, and novice art collector impulses.
Alongside Old Boys Gallery’s fantastic selection of beer – surely among the most extensive in Singapore – is an equally superlative menu of small plates and tapas, taking cues from both Spanish traditions and futurethinking Asian fusion cuisine. So, expect inventive takes on the small plate like cremini in disguise and classic roast pork aglio olio to be found rubbing shoulders with burgers – huge, delicious burgers like Old Boys Gallery’s signature Manster Burger, big enough for the heartiest of appetites. Find Old Boys Gallery down Kampong Bahru Road, and settle in with a cold one for a feast that satisfies both the eyes and the belly.
Excellent food and service! The vongole in broth was the best part of dinner. Beef skewers were delicious too. Potato head (sweet potato fries) were nice, especially the curry mustard sauce. Portions were good.
Food was great! Strongly recommend the Roasted Pork Aligio olio! They have a wide selection of beer over there! For those who like sweet beer, their Pecheresse lindemans is a must try! Good atmosphere!
Great place, nice roast pork pasta and quite a wide range of good ciders n beer! Quaint place near the roadside, good for friends gatherings.
Food is just nice. I had the salted egg chicken cutlet that the portion is fulfilling but I wish to have more vegetable to make it less sinful. Staffs are friendly too!
The service was good and food was tasty! Water was refilled promptly. Tried their roasted pork carbonara (creamy sauce pasta with siobak) and their grilled salmon and prawns with mashed potatoes and fries:) pasta was around 15 and the other dish 19? No gst and service charge! They have a lunch deal that looks quite worth it.
Wasn't expecting this place to be so dark and noisy in the evening. If they had art pieces on the walls, I completely missed them. Might not be the ideal place to really chat. Their popular roasted pork in their aglio olio wasn't as succulent as I hoped. They should've also removed the small bone in their pork before serving instead of having us chew them off each and every piece. Such a chore while trying to scream over all that noise at the same time. One of our orders of their Manster Burger was also totally forgotten, and needed us reminding them twice before they realised they missed out that order.
Food was decent, came quite quickly (within 10 mins?) which was good given that it was lunch hour :) The service was good as well! Had the roast pork carbonara which was a bit too creamy but the roast pork was good.
Great place to chill during Saturday Lunch hour. There's a great variety of different beer to choose from, prices are affordable and food is delicious.
Serving for entree was pretty small. Steak was good. Service was excellent. Drinks selection was also excellent. Food was served promptly. The sauteed veges were good. Love the peppers.
Cozy place for drinks and bar snacks! Place is relatively small but quite chillax.
