On Thursday, May 9th at 2 p.m., HopCat will host an invitation-only ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Macomb County Chamber of Commerce, local community leaders and HopCat’s mascot, Brewce. Then on Saturday, May 11th, HopCat will be giving away free Cosmik Fries for one year to the first 100 guests in line during a public housewarming celebration. Doors will open at 10 a.m., and dine-in guests will receive HopCat promotional items and special gifts while supplies last. Guests will not be allowed to form a line overnight.  Those interested in being one of the first 100 guests may begin lining up after 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 11th.

"It’s an honor to return to find our new home at The Mall at Partridge Creek," said Kara Snyder, General Manager of HopCat Partridge Creek. "After five years at HopCat Detroit, I am thrilled to expand our brand, and I am confident that my team of over 100 passionate team members will provide unforgettable experiences."  

The new 7,000 sq ft location will accommodate up to 320 guests and feature a wrap-around bar, spacious booth seating, an outdoor patio and a private event space for up to 50 people. Additionally, HopCat’s popular music theme décor is on full display in the new space with a signature wall adorned with classic vinyl record covers of famous musical artists, custom murals & the brand’s largest beer tap handle wall.

“The addition of HopCat, the first in Macomb County, to The Mall at Partridge Creek, will offer a vibrant new dining experience for our visitors,” said Carmen Spinoso, CEO of Spinoso Real Estate Group. “A beloved Michigan brand, that focuses on people first, we look forward to our guests enjoying HopCat in a unique setting.”    

Prior to the public opening on May 6th, HopCat is partnering with the Humane Society of Macomb County. During the soft opening weekend, HopCat will match up to $5,000 of all monies raised through alcohol sales and charitable donations to support life-saving resources for homeless dogs and cats.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with HopCat, just down the street from our shelter. It’s an incredible opportunity to partner with a great, local group and help raise impactful funds,” said Humane Society of Macomb County Executive Director, Mike Wilke. “Our non-profit runs solely on the generosity of our public donations; 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly into saving the pets that make their way to our shelter. Don’t forget, ADOPT, DON’T SHOP!”
