Although it’s technically a night club they have free drinks from 10-11 which is a good way to start the night. Tech house music before 12 and kind of Asian remixes after midnight. Had a good time and worth a visit as a backpacker

Having first come to Vang Vieng 13 years ago, I feel saddened to now see this is the direction the place has taken. Likely one of the worst bars you will come across in South East Asia. The whole energy of the place is depressing...More

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.

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!
