Great bar a little off the normal tourist path! Cheaper drinks than on the main drag, and more expats than tourists. Friendly, casual vibe, good music, pool table. Everything you want in a chill, divey bar!

It's a late-night bar so...Yes, it can be loud but what a great night. I thought I was stopping in for 1 beer, 3 hours later... they put me in a Taxi and made sure I got home safe. Who does that nowadays? At first...I thought what is all over the walls, then I read the story. King Kong (the owner) asks people to sign the walls as a sign of appreciation. It's not random graffiti. They are thank you messages. I do feel sorry for the villa's opposite, but who builds Villa directly outside the nightclub who have been there for 12 years! and have tables out front. The Villas need to invest in soundproofing and I know WhyNotBar are working on a solution to the noise to do there part.More

What a noisy hole on the wall. No consideration for anyone but themselves, loud incoherent trash music till 3am. Stayed directly opposite place looks like something you might find on the strip in Bali... what a rathole tagged on the doors with backpacker graffiti... not...inviting at allMore

What a great place to be. The barkeeper is a really nice and chill guy and the place really got some character. Come early and you can choose the music ;)

The best place to go out after a lovely night in the cozy Old Town! Definitely one of the best places in this beautiful city! Reccomended!

Not really my scene. Seemed to be going for the rave club kind of vibe with the luminous paint on the walls. They sell the laughing gas balloons as well. Good spot for young people.

An enjoyable club, rather far from old city but great for backpackers. Unsure which nights it is the most happening, but make sure to drink beforehand since the drinks are very expensive.
