Mixed drinks of mixed quality

The cocktails here are not so great (I'd avoid the sickly sweet grenadine), the air is smoky, and the atmosphere in low season seems somewhat more conducive to solo drinking than a relaxed social drink. Similar (or better) quality cocktails tend to be cheaper in the cities, but there's less choice... read more

Similar (or better) quality cocktails tend to be cheaper in the cities, but there's less choice up in Sapa.

My partner and I came here both for breakfast and for evening drinks on two separate occasions. The breakfast was cheap and good-value, he ordered an omelette and I ordered pancakes with mango and honey which although slightly unusually pink in their colour were nonetheless tasty. Their hot wine was the best we had in sapa and not expensive! The... More

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
