Great party atmosphere. First and foremost the BEST thing about all of Vietnam is friendly people. We always try learning a few words in the local language (start on the inbound flight) and find that helps. This place is awesome! Don t miss it!

We went to The Escape bar on my first night in Dalat and go back as often as we can. The drinks are amazing and high quality. None of the cheap stuff. The price is great because Green City hotel offer to hotel customers 10% discount here! You can't beat that! However, Here you get the atmosphere and good conversation.... More

Great place with live music every night. Lots of guest musicians from out of town join the local crew from time to time. Lots of special events like Halloween, Chinese New Year and other events are regularly celebrated. Fun place to be - especially if the owner is in the house.

We spent a few evenings in The Escape bar. We ejoyed some great red wine, chatted with the friendly staff, chatted with musician, sipped some excellent cocktails and ate finger food. Very chilled, very laid back and wish I was back there now. If you like a little bit of Blues, Country and Jazz, wonderful cocktails or a good wine,... More

.... we started off in the V Cafe for dinner (see separate review) and when the musical trio packed up and moved here we moved with them; they played classic rock hits from the 1960's and were really good. We ended up having ice creams, coffees and drinks here and stayed to the end of their set. The only thing... More

We went to the Escape Bar quite early on in the night so we were the only ones there. it was "happy hour" and we were told we could order two cocktails for the price of one but, of course, when we went to pay had to pay the cost of two because of a "misunderstanding"

After having had dinner at the V Cafe (great place, too!), its owner Curtis King suggested us to follow him in his other place, The Escape Bar. As expected on a thursday night, the bar was not crowded, but the atmosphere was nice, though. The drinks were very good, but the best thing was the live music. A local band... More

I only visited once but the CD music was great - jazz & blues greats. The surroundings in this bar are very nice - comfy seats and lovely wine glasses - makes the wine taste so much better! Food is the same as V Cafe - overall reasonably priced and good. Owner musician plays from 9pm - wasn't able to... More
