Irish magic makes it tops.

This fabulous bluesy basement bar is a great way to finish a great night out. The band was xlnt & the young Iris lad who did a few numbers was . magic(Moores Bros.).Not the place to sit & chat but just great fun.

we really enjoyed the Escape Bar. as everyone else mentions, the resident band are fabulous. Contrary to some of the other complaints about the owner- we thought he was fun and so friendly, and I think he's 'living the dream' by being able to play and sing with his band in a popular nightspot in a great place in the...

Followed band from Ho Chi Minh City after they sang a few at owner's other music venue, V Cafe, just down the street and in walking distance. Lounge in basement of hotel - cool vibe! Like being in underground cave - great sound from band, who played rock and blues. Get comfy at the high top tables or groovy chairs... More

The owner is rude and confrontational. We were a group of eight out for the evening and when the music started the performers speaker was cracking destroying his work. When one of us suggested he replace the speaker, there were several on stage, the owner jumped up on stage and with mike in hand verbally attacked us. Bowing in front... More

Coming from Saigon whenever I'm in Dalat and looking for live music I would definitely go to the Vcafe or the Escape bar. Great food and drinks and probably the only place in town that has a decent band playing the rock n roll and blues!! Rock on!

Group of 10 of us went out for what should have been a great night out - sadly ruined by arrogant and obnoxious King. Stumbled around, tripped over the mic wires constantly and had to be helped by a waitress. Then walked up to our wives and made obscene gestures with his tongue. One of the husbands went to speak...

Five of us came for a few drinks after dinner one night after reading some good reviews. However, the music was way too loud to converse and the prices for drinks were quite expensive compared to other establishments in the area. Also, one of the musicians/staff, whom I believe may be the owner (asked one of the waiters and said... More

We read a few reviews on this place and went for an evening drink here. The musicians on show are no doubt good at what they do but the drinks are a bit steep for what we wanted and not ideal for chatting to friends over a drink as it's pretty loud. That said, if you're a blues fan and... More

This place was a good little bar with ok cocktails and nice food however slightly overpriced compared to other places in the area. The music, the band and the atmosphere is great!
