We went here twice, once as a couple and the second time with some friends. Had a nice dinner both times and really good cocktails the second time. The basa fish is really nice and soft, would recommend.

We had some drinks at the Why not bar. We wanted the DJ to play one song so we and some friends can dance a little since there was no one dancing and it was late so the place was almost empty. The rude DJ asked us to pay 100,000 dong (4.5 USD) per that one song! We were really... More

We went to that place with a few friends as it is a cheap bar for backpackers who do not want to spend much. There are some happy hour options before 11pm so it looked good to us. After our first "bucket", I began feeling sick as if I have been intoxicated somehow. As I had been eating street food... More

Why not bar is normal, not clean. Sometime, i went to this bar and drank mix-wine. But the music is not good.

Very dirty place with below average service. Tables are covered with food and drinks remains from previous guests, toilet is horrible. A lot of staff around but noone is really cares for guests. 1 time was enough to understand that this place is way below my expectations.

Lonely planet mentions this as a lively place with cheap drinks but it might be the most expensive place in Nha Trang and it was totally empty by about 12:15. You do get a free shot on arrival and happy hour 'buckers' are reasonable. It will show the earlier football games but it's basically way too expensive!

This place was literally a two minute walk from our hostel. Since they always had loud music and free shots, we couldn't turn away ;) Try the buckets here - they will ensure that you are on the dance floor soon enough ! ;)

Had a good time here chilling with friends. We came here to get drunk not to eat though. The buckets tasted like jungle juice. The hookah was strong and tasty. Overall a good night out with friends.
