Sorry for that experience. That musician has been banned from the bar (and no longer lives in Dalat). Sorry again. Safe travels.

Had a good night here watching the house band crank out tunes. Drinks cold and plentiful and prices standard. Highlight of the night was the 10 year old kid (nicknamed Dollar) poundin the drums and keepin the beat for the big boys. Good times.

It's in a 4 stars hotel i think. At least before it changed to Muong Thanh hotel. They don't have Jazz or blues music now anymore. I'm a local come there often so I'm sure about that.
