This popular bar and restaurant became our local during a week in Vientiane. It's not the cheapest place in town but it offers a stylish venue, massive drinks menu (with every cocktail imaginable) and great food choices to suit all palates. It's very popular with expats and visitors alike has wifi, and happy hour from 5pm-8pm.You can watch the world... More

Waiting to take photograph of sunset but a bit too early. 12000 kips per beer. No obvious happy hour. All western visitors.

We stopped for some cold beverage and enjoyed this place. They also has a nice Hot Breakfast menu. A good place to make a stop for a drink and/or watching the sunset.

This is a nice and friendly place to enjoy a cocktail or beer and soak the sunset over the Mekong. Staff is friendly, welcoming, attentive and quick to respond to your needs. The good is good.

This place is in a slightly quieter part of Vientiane. The outdoor seating area was failry shady and quite nice for a beer or cocktail. The views of the Mekong were also good! Would be great to watch the sunset from.

Great outdoor seating area but you can find better food both local and western elsewhere. The food we ordered was pretty bland. Would not recommend.

Plenty of seating both outside and inside, this bar overlooks the Mekong and is a good place to sit and watch the Sun set. Decent Cocktail Menu for those of us who don't drink the local beer. Food menu looked good but we did not eat evening meal here, however we did have breakfast which was very good. Buzzing atmosphere... More
