The Hive New Bridge Road occupies four floors of three combined shophouses, which until recently used to house Expedia. Luckily the shophouses were converted sympathetically but in a way that created large open spaces, perfect for creating a comfortable coworking environment.
By joining the Hive, you become part of Asia’s most dynamic and diverse coworking community. Whether you are a member in Bangkok, Hong Kong or Singapore: when you travel you can make use of any Hive location as a base for working, or to hold meetings. We’ll even issue you with a Hive Passport, which gives you free access to all our other locations.
In the event of a cancellation, a 24 hour notice prior to the event is required.
Overall the venue is quite unique but location can be a bit challenging to find as the signage was not prominent enough and some of the guests had to make a detour before they could eventually find it. The setup of the venue (projector/screen) and F&B was fine. Payment processes can be a bit confusing, as I understand that there were some discrepancies with the invoice and needed clarification. It would be good for the events person to verify the invoice first before sending across to clients. The location manager Yun at the Hive wasn’t very seasoned and this was especially so during the site viewing, where we had to ask a lot of questions (mostly basic, in fact) and Yun was very passive. Their invoicing systems was also a nightmare and I only received a proper invoice a week after putting the down payment, not to mention that the invoice was wrong as well. Yun doesn’t seem to know how the invoicing system works and while the final invoice amount was correct, the method of invoicing made it difficult for me to file claims for expenses. At the end of the event, Yun and her colleague Beatrice were rather rude in chasing us out. When we placed the down payment, Yun did not give us the heads-up that we need to leave by a certain time (a professional events management person would know and do this) and Beatrice, in wanting us to leave quickly, randomly stuffed our leftover food into boxes without ensuring that it was packed properly. I also thought they didn’t leave a good impression of The Hive among our guests as well, because there was a heavy thunderstorm when the event concluded and Yun/Beatrice were very eager to get everyone out. What would have made a good, lasting impression was them allowing us to stay and wait for the thunderstorm to subside.
