Before 5pm on Tuesday the 9th of August we met the dream team of bar waitresses whom we called Teeny and Tiny and they stole our hearts. 10/10 would come again and lose my heart. You can see our names on the wall. It's a cool place like that

My Wife, Son & I ate & drank here while in Hue. It is a really cool little bar. Great staff with a very cool atmosphere. Well worth dropping in after spending the day out touring.

Loved this bar. Great decor and chilled vibes. Gin and Tonic is 35k at happy hour so we had 4 and they were really well presented with a thin slice of lime. Street terrace is awesome with raked seating so you can see loads going on in the street. The staff are really friendly, one guy was studying English and... More

Cocktails and mixed spirits are a good price and food is pretty good too. Nice seating outside to watch the cyclo's and local sellers.

Yes, the food did appear to come through the front door as opposed to a kitchen out back but our experience of the food was that it was great. From the Pho to the whole fried fish (which was awesome) we were very happy with everything we ate here. Compliments to the kitchen down the road. Staff were excellent, not... More

It isn't the cheapest bar around but the drinks are pretty good with a nice variety. The main thing I enjoyed about this place was the atmosphere and the relatively comfy seats looking out in to the streets. The pool table and live sports were a nice addition too.

Food appears to be delivered from a kitchen down the road. All four meals were disappointing. Good for beer and footy, but eat beforehand.
