HOPHAUS to open at Southgate!

DEXUS Property Group and Red Rock Leisure officially announce the launch of HOPHAUS, in Southgate restaurant and shopping precinct’s iconic space previously occupied by Bluetrain (now on Southgate’s upper level).

A contemporary twist on the great Bavarian Beer Halls, HOPHAUS is the latest addition to Red Rock Leisure’s stable of social pubs and Southgate’s restaurant precinct, drawing inspiration from the history and tradition of the world’s original “craft breweries” that celebrates the Germanic approach to brewing, one of both art and science. With unparalleled views along the Yarra housing up to 350 patrons, HOPHAUS is set to become an exciting new destination for Melbourne social gatherings.

Scott Travers, DEXUS Regional General Manager Office & Industrial says, “We are proud to announce the opening of HOPHAUS at Southgate this year, which will add a unique new beer hall experience to Southgate. Along with the impending opening of new Southgate Italian wine and tapas restaurant ARTUSI, Red Emperor’s new location and chef Lin Chan (Flower Drum), and Bluetrain’s critically acclaimed new upper level fit out, HOPHAUS affirms Southgate’s position as a landmark Melbourne dining and socialising destination.”

HOPHAUS owner, Paul O’Brien says, “We wanted to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience in this iconic location, an experience that delights and surprises yet also feels familiar and hospitable.”

HOPHAUS will house over 30 draught taps around its huge central bar.  With an impressive selection of German, Austrian, Belgian and Czech Brews on offer, HOPHAUS will be a unique drinking house, somewhere to taste and learn about the famous German beer styles that have influenced the drinking habits of generations across the globe.

HOPHAUS’ architectural design has been created by the multi award-winning Maddison Architects founded by Peter Maddison of Grand Designs Australia.

Peter Maddison says, “We have taken great delight in crafting a unique interior for this project, which is based on research of European beer halls, and then re-inventing them, so that the materials and finishes are familiar, yet somehow different.  This can be seen in for example, the polychrome glazed brickwork (over 6,000 in total) that feature throughout the venue.”

Feature beers will change regularly and some of Germany’s and Europe’s oldest and most loved brews will be available on tap, including beers from the famed Weihenstephan (the world’s oldest brewery), Paulaner, Franziskaner and Bitburger breweries.

HOPHAUS will also feature a selection of German, Austrian and Alsace wines by the glass along with New World wines that celebrate the region’s famed varieties: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gruner Veltliner and more.

The menu at HOPHAUS will feature classic Bavarian favourites with a contemporary Melbourne flair with a big focus on communal shared dining. The open kitchen will showcase low and slow cooking methods over the coal fired pit and rotisserie.

Executive Chef, Marc Brown promises the food will be exciting and fresh, using age-old European cooking styles that bring out the natural flavours of great Victorian produce.

“Uncomplicated, nothing too fussy or overly sauced, just good honest food that will keep you coming back for more,” says Marc Brown.

The kitchen will be open for lunch and dinner, while a bar menu will complement an afternoon or late night brew.

Hophaus is anticipated to open in late May 2014. For more information subscribe to the Southgate eNewsletter.
