Happy hour at $1 a beer = small bottles of Tiger, Hanoi or a large Larue. Their exchange rate meant this was 21k VND not the 20k we have had through the rest of Vietnam. Music was loud awful and irritating and competed with the bar staff and their kids shrieking and playing a video game. Change came with a... More

We decided to visit the Mountain Bar for an early night cap after finishing at a restaurant for dinner since its out last evening in Sapa, but after one drink, couldn't help but feel a little disappointed as we left. The bar is a bit of dive, dark and dingy with old typical American music playing. There were three $1... More

It's not easy to find a good social watering hole in Sapa. This is evidently as good as it gets. Price of drinks was quite high for its shabby vibe. The staff were kind of aloof too.. Will perhaps have a drink in my room. Lol. Who knows, it could have been a bad hair day. Will give them one... More

Pretty much all gringos to be expected. Hookahs, Whiskey and Lo Cai beer. Friendly service handing out local fruit and some sort of crisps. Music is all american early 70's. I could not take it after two rounds. If thats your bag you're made in the shade. Some sort of happy hour that i cound not quite figure out. Foosball... More

like the atmosphere, some interesting drinks and safe beer choices. It's interesting inside and out... sit by the window and people watch.

No way, to avoid. Loud Back street boys noise, no service... Didn't like or recommend. The foot table is not working properly (cannot play but still there) and drinks are so-so.

Highly recommend popping into this place for a little night cap. We went in during one of the regular powercuts and huddled round the stove for warmth and light whilst sipping some of the local apple wine! It's worth just going in to have a chat to the lovely owner Mr Dong who speaks great English and makes you feel... More

Really cool cosy little place. Perfect for having a late night drink with friends and meeting new people. The bar will close early if it's quiet.

Great local bar for intimate live music. Will definitely make this a stop on future visits to the city. Bear in mind they don't serve any food, but allow outside food to be brought in. This place is excellent. We've been here many times and the service is continually way above par. Would recommend it.

Very welcoming bar, especially from the chilly winter conditions. Very fair prices and warming mulled apple wine, I would highly recommend as the owner Dong helped us to dry our clothes and wet shoes.
