Couldn't find this place. Went to the location trip advisor says and it wasn't there. Ended up going to the southern end of the air strip to his house which is now a kiwi bar. A few locals playing pool. Looks like it would be a good place to hang out. Apparently Brad has Goin back to Nz for 2... More

Searched for this place to watch some sports - though it isn't currently operating as a sports bar, rather a local pool hall. Probably a nice place to play some pool and hang out with locals, though don't expect western sports on the television.

I didn't drink here but I did wander in one afternoon, with all my bags, completely lost and looking for my guesthouse. The owner came out, tried to help and even offered me a lift into town when he heard I had been walking around with all my bags for so long...and because "rain is on the way." A minute... More

Stopped by today after reading about this place on trip advisor. Didn't find it too difficult to find, but the location has changed from what trip advisor lists. It is down the end of town by the airstrip and bus station. The owner was so welcoming and a good bunch of people were there to drink with. Pool tables and... More

We had heard about the kiwi bar and tried to find it, turns out brad has now made his house into a bar! at the southern end of the airstrip by the bus station. Its well worth the walk out to be welcomed into his relaxed bar. We tried some local drink in which you suck through bamboo straws to... More

Stayed a week in Vang Vieng and went to Kiwi Bar quite a few times. It's run by New Zealander Brad who is really friendly and has great info on Laos and the Vang Vieng area. Big screen TV for sports and great music - he even lets you play your own via ipod etc. The bar is off the... More
