Very nice location a little bit down the main road. Seems to be always good visited. Great cocktail menue and great view on the Mekong. Prices are reasonable.

Bit of a walk from centre of town, good to build up a thirst. Go between 5 - 8pm for 25% off happy hour. Popular place with tourists and expats for good reason. Didn't eat here but food certainly looked and smelt good.

Located right alongside the Mekong river. I have to say, it took awhile to actually locate this riverside bar, a tuk-tuk driver we asked initially couldn't find it but eventually we stumbled upon it.

The staff are well trained in cocktail making. The eggs benedict with smoked salmon is excellent. Combine the two and this makes a great weekend breakfast place. For a sunset cocktail on the Mekong in a relaxed setting, The Spirit House is an ideal place.

Very nice Tapas style menu, albeit a bit expensive (for Vientiane), Extensive bar menu. Great outdoor seating. The service is OK, but slow; you normally have to ask for a menu...

Perfect place to chill out for the afternoon over drinks and some nibbles. Sat and read my book for a few hours. Staff were laid back but there when you needed them. I had some lovely cocktails, good soup and then was in the perfect location for watching the sunset. Would definitely recommend. Felt a good mix of locals, expats,... More

Lovely setting and the food was good; when we got it. The service was the worst we had in the whole of our travels in Indo China.

Good location with excellent drinks. Easy access, a few minutes walk from center of Vientiane by the river of Mekong. Excellent service in the middle of an area with locals and foreigners.

We only had iced coffees and a beer here but the spot is nice, on the river so it's a bit cooler. Staff were nice. It is more expensive then other places though.
