I come here all the time, I love it. Free pool, great music, cheap drinks, stays open very late every night. Perfect location right near all the best cheap hotels and restaurants. You're sure to run into lots of cool tourists from all over the world, and some locals here. The owner, Tuan is a really good guy with a very nice, young family. He speaks very good English. Try playing him in pool, you will lose, haha. Don't miss this place, it's my favorite bar in Dalat.

May be one of the only options, but up to you.
First, they have a menu with 20 items, out of which they were serving only 2.
Second, they have a happy hour written on the door from 5-7 and 8-9, but it appears that the latter one is irrelevant, even though it's right there announced in public.
Third, when I got the bill, the manager refused to accept my credit card, even though there are visa and MasterCard labels all over the place. He came up with his own number for extra payment (instead of the regular 3% I've been getting all over the country) to convince me to pay cash.

Would not bother going back.

This is the place to be in Dalat if your a young traveller and want to meet like minded folks. If this isn't your scene then this place might not appeal to you. It's not mine but still had a nice time and the pool table is the best in town.

5 stars as the owner went out of his way to assist me with a one way motorcycle trip across the central highlands and shipped my big bag on to Hue. Trips need a few days notice and he's the local agent for motorvina but also rents his own bikes. If you're an experienced rider, he has a new EN150 you can rent, reasonably priced considering its condition.

If you want a few quiet drinks, a pleasant chat about Vietnam, some games of pool then get there early as the crowd arrives after 7pm.

As is the case with most foreigner/hostel-centric bars, the experience largely depends on who else happens to be traveling at the same time. My boyfriend and I had an excellent experience here! We first showed up at around 7:30 or so, right after dinner, and we were the only people in the place. But that's okay and understandable! Soon enough, a group of people showed up, and we were playing free(!) pool and having a great time! Before long an entire hostel showed up, and despite being slammed, service was still friendly and quick! Saigon green is 20,000 dong, but guys...that's only a dollar. Well worth the new friends we made :)

Again, this is another place that loves its customers. Not sure why there is any bad reviews as the owners talked with us all night until the crowd came in. Many backpackers showed up and it was easy to talk to people and share travel tips. Free pool and a great difference in music to appeal to all tastes.
