An unusual coffee shop in Phuket Town
Hog’s Head Pub is a new fun coffee shop and bar taken straight out of a scene of the Harry Potter world and tucked between 2 shophouses on Yaowarat Road in Old Phuket Town. The pub is somewhat discreet and looks a lot like an Irish pub from the outside, but if you look at the facade, something unusual will probably catch your attention. Why is the entrance door crooked?
If you look closer, you’ll find another significant clue: there is a Nimbus 2000 wizard flying broom hanging in one of the windows. That was enough information to make it irresistible, we had to know what this place was and we pushed the door. The Pub wasn’t yet open to the public, but the owner was kind enough to let us explore. That was quite a surprise! The Hog’s Head Pub is a scene of Harry Potter’s world building in the middle of Phuket Town! It really felt like finding Diagon Alley in Yaowarat Road!
The first room looks like an old fashioned tavern with wood tables and shelves. Between to wood barrel, behind the counter, an animated Hog’s Head moves to greet you. Above the bar counter is a superbly executed dragon skeleton.
The Harry Potter experience doesn’t end at the tavern! Open the back door and discover more of this imaginary world with the back building designed like a magic wand shop. The facades here are even more crooked than the front of the pub. They really spend time and effort to make it fun and unusual. Hog’s Head Pub is definitely about to become another popular Selfie spot in Phuket!
What to order
Hog’s Head is a restaurant, a coffee shop and a pub too. You can order Thai or international dishes to go with a good selection of Belgian beers, but to go with such decor, it’s a lot more fun to try their signature cocktails! Butterbeer (soda, syrup on top of milk foam: 95 baht), Liquid Luck (mango smoothie, soda, syrup: 95 baht) or Cursed Rose (coffee, soda, syrup: 120 baht)
If you visit Hog’s Head with the intention to take selfies, keep in mind that you will be required to order a drink per person 😉 Apparently, it happens that groups come in to take photos, but order a single drink!
