WHY NOT?! I'LL FULLY TELL YOU WHY NOT. A load of the people from our hostel wanted to go out, and we obviously wanted to join them, but we didn't really know where to go. At this point, some moron from the back of the room piped up "My friend said let's go to why not bar." Mistake. When we... More

Avoid this place. Seriously. My iPhone was stolen here and I'm convinced it was the staff. I only had three drinks and I was blackout drunk, drunkest I've been in my life, fell asleep on the sofa, woke up the next day at 11am and all the money had been stolen from my wallet (1.5 million dong) and my phone...

As my partner searched for a place to hang in town, she came across this name with the reputation of the most popular bar in Nha Trang, so we checked it out. 1. There was entry fee: odd, but okay, you can exchange your ticket for a special drink. That sounds decent. 2. No the drinks are not special at... More

Came here with a few friends from our hostel and it was busy lots of fun and 241 cocktails most nights but the vodka they use is nasty so i would avoid it! Stick to bottled drinks.

My girlfriend drank the vodka and pineapple mixer at this bar. Being Polish she can handle her vodka.However, this place does not use spirit fit for human consumption. She ended up vomiting in our hotel room for two days!! Also, the staff are aggressive, insolent,rude.... AVOID!!

After going to Why Not Bar my boyfriend ended up in hospital with methanol poisoning. We had 2 buckets each, grossly discounted from 55 000 to 35 000. There is no way any quality alcohol could have gone into a drink of this price. Bar itself is alright but if you go - buy bottled drinks.
