“Very Unique place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We went to this restaurant because of a recommendation from our tour guide. It was very unique. The fashion show was really cute and it was great to see all of the different types of clothing from the different regions of Laos. The hip-hop dance show was great, too. Some of those boys are really talented. We ordered food and drinks while we were there and everything was really good. I stumped the bartender and asked for one of his specialty drinks without alcohol and the result was pretty good. Overall I would definitely recommend this place for a unique dining/show experience in Luang Prabang.

Thank you for your great review of hive. We are really proud of the shows and service we offer our customers. I had a great chuckle regarding your comment about stumping our bartender. We don't get those requests often at hive, but I am happy we were able to figure out a solution that was tasty. Cheers!

“Best night out showcasing talented happy Lao locals.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had a wonderful night in March at this restaurant. We were welcomed warmly on arrival and then pleasantly surprised by the energy of the performers in this free show. The many traditional costumes were outstanding and the models moved to the great music in sync and looked happy to be there ! The dancing group to follow were high energy and skilled .
We enjoyed a great smoked chicken pizza and smoked pork roll.
Please do yourself a favour and go along when visiting Luang Prabang.

“DON'T MISS THIS PLACE!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

This bar & restaurant has it all; nice drinks, great food, good ambience and friendly staff.
On top of this already great package they host a free (donations are appreciated to keep the show free!) ethnic fashion show from Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7pm, followed by a hiphop show. When in Luang Prabang, DON'T MISS THIS PLACE!!

“Eclectic place to cool off on warm day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stopped off at this interesting bar one afternoon in mid Feb. Music was good and there was a nice breeze on the patio. Inside seemed fairly cool as well for a warm day in L B. We had very quick and friendly service soon after we set down on the front patio. There is a very nice and comfortable back courtyard as well. We ordered a late light lunch that was quite good as well. I had a chicken dish and my son enjoyed a fish dish that he ordered. Our waiter was cheerful and friendly and seem to enjoy practicing his English skills with us. There is a couple of large shady trees in the front patio that kept us cool while we enjoyed the good food, cheerful waiter and the cold beer Lao! Prices were fairly inexpensive and we had a good time while here.

“a fantastic evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I watched the fashion show and dancing. Both were really good, top quality enternainment. The fashion show was very interesting and the dancing was really professional. The staff were also very friendly, a few stopped to chat to us for a while which is always lovely.
The food was amazing. I had chips for the first time in 3 weeks and it did not disappoint! And the pizza was so tasty, all done very well.
A great night out for everyone. I went with males and females ranging from 19 to 40 years old and we all really enjoyed our night here.
