Terrible bar, smells of excrement. The western staff behind the bar have a terrible attitude and seem more concerned about drinkimg themselves. There were only about 10 people in the place and I can understand why. Not even worth going to for the free drink.

Free drinks from 10-11pm. The speakers of the sound system are really bad. The DJ changed the music genre after every song so there was every kind of music played.

We went here 2 nights in a row for a few drinks. The staff is friendly and it has a good atmosphere. The bar-menu is limited. The staff was surprised when we ordered drinks while they were handing out free whisky-beer shots ("you actually want...More

Great venue, amazing staff and drink deals. Good for an early evening drink or drunken antics at the end of the night. English DJ there was sick! Would definitely recommend going here. Free beer and whiskey between 10-11 pm every night!

Well, it is open after 11:30 as most things close in Vang Vieng, but it is not worth the visit. The drinks are ok, but the music is terrible, badly mixed techno with some pop songs... terrible DJ. The ambient is quite ok, although the...More

Cool place, somewhat hidden. This is where all The party pepole comes to end the night. Also a real fun place to stop buy when tubing. Stay safe!

Late night club in vang vieng, so many great (and fuzzy) late nights! Also a hostel upstairs so you can be in the middle of the fun.
