Passionate about Australian craft beer, small batch spirits, local wine, burgers and vegan food
Here at The Hive Bar, Sydney, we take eating and drinking pretty seriously. We believe in catering for all of our community… including those who eat meat, and those who are vegetarian and vegan. We are all about burgers, and you will always find something new and exciting on our specials board (both meat and vegan of course).
Located just down the road from Newtown, Erskineville is known for its local village vibe and cool shop fronts. Come visit our restaurant and bar and you will undoubtedly find yourself falling in love with our service and passion. It’s not just burgers that Sydney knows us for… it’s also our dedication to Australian craft beer. With 4 rotating taps, we like to keep things pretty interesting, where you can always find a new and unusual brew… anywhere from local brewers such as Shenanigans Brewing, to interstate brewers such as Margaret River’s Beer Farm or South Australia’s Little Bang Brewing. Australian craft beer is what we are all about! Check out our beer fridge for even more package craft beer!
Now, as for our spirits… we don’t want to toot our own horn too much, but for a small bar, we sure do have a mighty big back bar. You will find an enviable collection of Australian craft gin (including some much loved local batches), as well as Australian Vodka, Rum, Whisky, Liquor, Amaro and much more. Our international selection is far from dull, with plenty of tequila, mezcal, bourbon and scotch. Come grab a dram, let us make you a seasonal cocktail or perhaps suggest a boiler maker… perfectly matched with one of our craft beers of course!
