“Great food, location and all round hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

If you are looking for a great meal in Luang Prabang, you can't go past the Aussie Sports Bar. It was our second visit to LPB and a meal at Aussie Sports Bar was the first item on our to do list after checking in to our accom.

John, Jenny & staff were very helpful with arranging take away food for a planned picnic and generously loaned us an esky to keep our food chilled for the trip. Ice and condiments were arranged and all effort was put in to ensure our picnic was complete. Very much appreciated.

The beer is served cold in ice buckets. The corner location a great place to watch life in Luang Prabang flow by.

“A touch of home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Great beer prices, great location and awesome feel to the place.
If you're looking for a bit of quite reading with a beer or game of monopoly with the mates, this is the place for you. Plus good for a bit of people watching

“Very Solid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were at the tail end of a few months of travel throughout SEAsia. Ate here a couple of times and found the food to be tasty, solid, pub fare, as good or better than you might get in places back home. Very much appreciated that every beer we ordered came stuffed in an icy container. Plus good service, nice, laid back vibe, and excellent tunes. Very solid place indeed.

Thankyou for a great review. Many of the customers we have say the same as you and that is after a long time in Asia it is nice to get some good old "pub grub" and we are pleased you enjoyed it. All our large bottles of beer always come with ice container and we are pleased you enjoyed a real "coldie" as well as good service. Come back soon.

“Stopped for a Drink.Great Service & Feelings of home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

I am probably bias here as I am an Australian.It was welcoming to hear the Australian accent and watch the music clips of the Aussie bands from the 80's.Had a chat to the owner and the menu looked great too.I suspect that it rocks out at night.Liked it.

“Friendliest of atmospheres”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Truthfully I have not had food at The Aussie Sports Bar. I want to eat Loa food while I am here.
But I have had good drinks and outstanding service with those drinks. I was drawn in the bar while passing by because of the GOOD music playing. (Not techno crap!) I had drinks twice there so far. I met the owner John. John is down to earth, friendly and easy to talk to. He had great local recommendations he shared with me, even his favorite local restaurants.
