The bar is quite cosy and with nice music, especially considering that Sapa not the best city for going out. Unfortunately the street is noisy so sitting outside is not very pleasant. The prices for drinks are high for Vietnamese standards (~$1.50 for beer, $4.50 for a cocktail).

Admittedly, Sapa isn't where you go for bars and pubs but there are lots of better places to visit than this. We popped in for happy hour and were greeted with a $3 cocktail that was absolutely abysmal. It must have contained about 50ml of liquid. The beers were also bad value at 55000 doing for a small. The blaring... More

Color bar is a hip little place that makes you feel warm and cozy the minute you sit down. It's small and intimate, never crowded! We stumbled upon it close to our hotel a cold evening when looking for a spot to have a couple of drinks and relax. There was a sign for hot apple wine and a couple... More

Delightful little mud, stone and timber place with cobblestone terrace to enjoy the drink of your choice from juice, to beer, to hot red wine or hot chocolate, to cocktails. If weather not conducive to out side then inside with lots of fun and interesting pieces of art to look at. Good wifi. Definitely recommend

Stumbled across this place after eating at The Hill Station Restaurant. A small, quirky and very intimate bar that attracted an eclectic young crowd on this particular evening. My wife and I were looked after by our hosts and if we had been in town for longer, we would surely have returned. Recommended.

This place is unique. Cozy, artsy, and intimate--Vietnamese bbohemian..No other place like it in Sapa--keep coming back night after night for a glass of their homemade banana or artichoke wine and conversation with the effervescent bartender. The music is laid-back hip, the cocktails are made with love and mindfulness....

At first I stop by because the motorcycle rental shop next door bring me in to have the owner helping in English translation. When I return the bike I got to try some herb tea she made; and the apple wine (hot wine); well I think people comes to Sapa may like to try the local drink; the hot wine... More
