There are a few reasons we like Hive. Most impressive though is Hive Bar’s dedication to using local and sustainable food and drink as much as possible. They have a patch in the Erskineville Community Garden for vegetables, they source locally brewed beers, and the wine list is exclusively Australian.

Between the pizzas, platters, share plates and burgers, it doesn’t seem like the ethical approach has limited the menu. And whether you want a substantial meal or just a snack with you drink, it errs on the side of good value, with something for almost every whim.

The place loves vinyl and invites anyone to bring their own records down for a spin from Wednesday to Sunday nights. Hive really lives up to its name with its buzzing atmosphere, but also in its role as a convening point for local produce, the work of local artists and idle drinkers, who can be found here on any given afternoon.
