Honeycomb Hideout - 1

Honeycomb Hideout is a new Footscray bar that opened this week thanks to the owners of local pasta restaurant Fox in the Corn.

The minuscule bar is the result of a hole cut out of Fox in the Corn‘s original prep kitchen (which has never been used) and a small courtyard where the staff used to have after-service drinks.

A second hole cut out in the graffitied tin fence, a mysterious ‘H’ swing sign and voila! Honeycomb Hideout was born.

The menu is simple – selected craft beers from Fox in the Corn’s beer list, six pizzas in takeaway boxes and Gundowring dixie cups. All the ingredients you need for a chilled out afternoon session or night out!

The pizzas sport the requisite wood-fired charring and the toppings are those you might find in some of Fox in the Corn’s pasta sauces. I particularly liked the crunch factor from the slivered almonds on top of the braised beef pizza ($17) and the garlicky crust of the salumi pizza ($17) and I’ve always been a fan of Fox in the Corn‘s fresh napoli sauce.

Footscray is rapidly changing and Honeycomb Hideout represents the new wave of restaurants and cafes which are adding a different facet to the suburb’s famous ethnic dining scene. Say hello to Footscray’s first hipster laneway bar!
