“New location still good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Yet again Highland bar has moved.
Still an excellent sports bar with a decent choice of food both Lao and western - menu in both Lao and English.
More an expat hang out than a tourist one but good sports coverage if you are into that.

“it is an icon of the Vientiane landscape....whereever it may be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Highland Bar take 3!!! still a little off the beaten track, so locals are not swamped....good food, good service and it all comes down to Andy...owner, publican and general all round good guy....5 mins in the place and you could have been there for years....only downsides are the stairs....no rhyme or reason to the depth or height of any steps and the loo's....not only are the stairs a nightmare to negotiate but the fact that most ladies have to pass men urinating can be a triffle offputting....only until the 4th Beerlao kicks in though...love this place and its lovely location on the Mekong....this is Laos.

“Great feel, excellent friendly crowd and yummy pizzas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Ok so we had trouble finding this place initially it is about 300m past the Spirit House. We went there to watch the state of origin and are glad we did.

The crowd is mainly expats and all were friendly and a lot of fun. We had a pizza which was great. The bar staff started a tab for us and we paid approx. 300 000 kip for a night of drinks and a couple of pizzas which is roughly $40. Great value.

This is the place to go for a few drinks and to met lots of people we will definately be back. The Irish owner is also friendly.
