Headquarters

Delicious food, great bar, chilled vibe, live music and so much more

Headquarters aka HQ is fast approaching their 1st year anniversary and the relaunch is promising to make quite a noise – literally!

Since they opened, HQ and owner Leo Molloy have made the viaduct and its patrons sit up and listen as they boast to deliver ‘hospo’ differently.

Only serving 60 mains an hour, they offer quality before quantity, carefully selecting fresh produce, creating dishes that are humble, simple and honest.

Molloy doesn’t do flavour enhancers or poncy flowers and doesn’t follow ‘it’ food trends, he leads with flavour and follows up with experience.

A full rounded experience is fleshed out with games in the bar, a constant flow of laughter and hustle-bustle and live music most nights, plus, a stunning deck with exceptional Viaduct views.

Being on the corner site they have maximised a lifestyle vibe on their Moet deck, sporting beanbags, retro deck chairs and a garden lounge feel that makes you just want to stay and chill all afternoon and into the night.

Head Chef Jack Crosti has also maximised this vibe and has created a very delectable but easy menu, that would please most palettes. Using a solid fuel fired hotline, meals gain a caramelised, smoky edge that tests your tastebuds and leaves you wanting more.

The last thing to mention and certainly not the least is General Manager Kim Curtayne’s philosophy for the company and how they deliver service – ‘help, be helpful, offer more help’ and it’s this ethos coming from the top down, that is seeing them race past their first milestone, with no stopping insight.

The décor offers pockets and areas that feel like an oasis from life, everyone finds their own spot and settles in. 

They don’t do wanky, they don’t like notey, and they like to laugh and swear and have fun but most of all, for you to feel like this is a home away from home.

Special offer

Rosé Imperial Special

This summer, HQ and Moet offer an indulgent glamourous Champagne experience.

The Rosé Imperial is a bouquet of intense and irresistible aromas, starting with the summer berries then floral nuances and a peppery finish. Its fleshy and flirty at first then settles into a subtle herby delight on the tongue.

Perfectly matched with shellfish and grilled meats – enjoy it with HQ's signature Kingfish Ceviche or Spanner Crab salad or indulge in the Wakanui Scotch fillet caramelised on the grill for maximum flavour.

Moet Rosé Imperial is $20 per flute and $90 per bottle.
