Want Craft Head beer and food? Go to Evil Duck.  

Located on Shuiwei’s Fifth Street (Wu Jie) and a five-minute alley walk from Craft Head’s old location, Evil Duck is the latest project by Craft Head manager Nicholas Clark.

Now with two floors!

“We kept the best of the food from Craft Head, the baby back barbecue ribs, the mango salmon, the goat cheese wontons,” said Clark. “We’ve gone from 10 taps at Craft Head, to 14 taps (at Evil Duck) with a cold room and two nitrogen taps.”

Evil Duck also sports a downstairs and, usually quieter, upstairs, along with a badass Hollywood-style sign outside.

What’s with the animal-inspired name? Those who spent an evening on Craft Head’s outdoor tables will remember the soul-gazing duck ride with piercing red eyes. It has been purchased and repurposed as a sort of street-side mascot for the bar.

The namesake duck in front of some very temporary doors.

A many few have asked ‘why not just call it Craft Head?’ It turns out Evil Duck had been in the works for a while. Craft Head's plans to stay open ended with a change in heart by property management that saw the entire street shut down on short notice.

“We were going to run both locations at the same time,” said Clark.

Some of the beer and cider is provided by Craft Head, and there are new items on the menu like falafel (RMB30), beetroot fries (RMB25) and a killer chicken and vegetable pie (RMB69), which is made with turmeric.
