For most who have been to Hopscotch, the location would be a wow-factor, but for me, it's the story behind how the bar started that I fell in love with.

Writing this article took me some time, and people around me know this – partly because I haven’t been writing much since last year; but mostly because I was hesitating over whether or not I wanted to share about this hidden gem – one that I have selfishly kept for myself.

This hidden gem is a bar named Hopscotch.

Hopscotch is located at Red Dot Museum at Tanjong Pagar. For most who have been there, the location instantly converts one into a loyal customer, but for me, it’s the story behind how the bar started that I fell in love with.

For most bartenders, the dream is always to eventually open their own bar. The same applies for Hopscotch’s founder Roger and his team.

“It all started while I was still working part time at Barstories back in 2013. Dave, the manager there then provided me a gig opportunity for one his friend’s private parties, and it was that chance which enabled us to start our events bartending arm Mixes From Mars, Mars Bar, our popup bar at The Duxton, and finally Hopscotch.”
