The bee's knees! 🐝 The bees have emerged on The Press Hotel's rooftop honey bee hive!

Their smallest staff members, these pollinators produce uber-local honey that not only sweetens your next bite at UNION Restaurant and Inkwell Lounge but helps support the future of Portland’s ecosystem. The hives should be open and fully functioning by early next month.
