Established in 2002, Hive Bar and Restaurant is the number one place for an evening out in Luang Prabang. Built from the remains of a traditional heritage Lao house, and with its front terrace, water fountains, hillside garden and dance floor, Hive offers unmatched ambiance for friends new and old to hang out, enjoy a cool drink, fabulous food and unique entertainment. Hive is home to the free and highly acclaimed ETHNIK Fashion Show and B-Boy Hip Hop Show rated by Tripadvisor as one of the top “Things to Do” when visiting Luang Prabang. Hive’s Canadian owners have made their mark on the Luang Prabang culinary scene by specializing in artisan smoked meats such as their Mekong rib and “The Best Bacon in Southeast Asia” as well as wood fired pizza. The "Ethnik Show" at the Hive Bar and restaurant has been officially recognized as a CULTURAL ATTRACTION by the Lao PDR Department of Information, Culture and Tourism. Update: In January 2016 the Hive Bar closed.
