—— Owners

Matt and Kimberly Hayward

Hide’s owners Matt and Kimberley have been an integral part of the Tauranga hospitality scene for years. It all started when they brought their experience of management roles in tourism and hospitality to the Bay and opened De Bier Haus on The Strand, which they later reimagined and converted to La Mexica. The couple and their two girls are now firmly rooted on the other side of the bridge, operating Hide as well as Brew Co on Maunganui Rd, the pub of choice for Mounties who enjoy great beer, good times, live music and fun events.
