“Host with the most”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

What an amazing place as with other comments food, atmosphere, red laolao and best of all the staff are great. A must see is the Ethnik fashion show and the hiphop show.

“Fantastic fashion show & break dancers”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We had a lovely time at the Hive Bar enjoying the drinks, the stunning fashion show and the funky hip hop breakdancing boys. Really worth a visit

“Awesome bacon”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

I've walked over the hill and around it, been to one or two other chill out bars in town but this is the best. I've shared whole afternoons with strangers, talked to Chris and Troy, drank loads of Beer Lao(only bar with it on tap) and had fantastic full on breakfast with home cured bacon(double portions).
So what if some of the staff don't all rush around, Chris keeps an eye on things and he'll always invite you to where he's sitting to have a chat if you're on your own.
It's a place to relax, away from the centre of town and not too far from the river, there's a small temple complex just down the road that hardly any other tourists go to, well worth your time.

“A HOMELY LAIR”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Difficult to say something that has not been pointed out already. Anyway: our arrival in Luang Prabang was no doubt underwhelming. We felt everything in town has been done up to please tourists. Then we met Troy: not only did we have a lovely time at the Hive Bar enjoying the food, the stunning fashion show and the energetic hip hop, but we also spent memorable days on the Mekong with Ai thanks to Troy's generous advice and help. Although I am stopped eating meat when I was 19 and avoid smoke like plague, I tasted a very good vegetarian dish and spent a couple of very pleasant nights among smokers. And this is for Troy: you are a charming host.

Thanks for your review. Those trips with Ai on the Mekong can be very special. Although our restaurant does feature artisan smoked meats, we are sensitive to the needs of vegetarians. In fact, one of our owners was a vegetarian for 18 years - so he makes sure our vegetarian menu items are great!

“Great Bar, Amazing Food - Top Place in Luang Prabang”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We traveled to Luang Pranang during Low Season and had been recommended the Hive bar by other travelers. A little different from the usual bar in Laos but a great place to visit and relax. Well priced Drinks, and great food (Good selection of both local and western) The Hive has the Best Bacon I have eaten by a long way and this is shown in a lot of the good food they serve. The Owner (Troy) is friendly and can give some good advise on things to do in town, and the right people to speak organize things. Excellent Service in a great environment.
