After having had dinner at the V Cafe (great place, too!), its owner Curtis King suggested us to follow him in his other place, The Escape Bar. As expected on a thursday night, the bar was not crowded, but the atmosphere was nice, though.
The drinks were very good, but the best thing was the live music. A local band was playing blues and rock classics, sometimes being joined by Curtis playing different instruments virtuously. Also, a female Vietnamese singer did some songs with a voice reminding me of Shakira.
Me and my friends had a lot of fun dancing and singing along to the music, and even doing a bit of percussion later. This jam session was probably the best night I had in Vietnam!

I only visited once but the CD music was great - jazz & blues greats. The surroundings in this bar are very nice - comfy seats and lovely wine glasses - makes the wine taste so much better! Food is the same as V Cafe - overall reasonably priced and good. Owner musician plays from 9pm - wasn't able to hear the live music. The bar was very quiet when I visited 6-7pm but it was the rainy season.

Whilst only in Da Lat for a couple nights we visited the escape bar on both occasions, it is without a doubt the only place in town to end up late in the night, the music is hot, the drinks are cool, and the parmesan popcorn is unmissable!

Every night there is live music, ranging in styles but usually finishing up with some good old rock and roll/blues played by some of the best musicians in Vietnam (and guests from all around the world) who really bring something special to the music they play.

Staff are friendly and approachable, good language skills and prompt service on both food and drink. The bar is well stocked and the food is served hot and tasty and generously portioned.

We're definitely coming back!

A bit more spacious than the V Cafe, which makes for better sound. The lighting needs some tweaking, but the place rocks!

I've been to Escape Bar for 8 times in 2 years.Basically I can stay in hotel not going anywhere just wait to go to Escape Bar in the night.
The nice owner couple.The super friendly staffs.The nice wine and mojoto.And the most important reason:Reyman in the house.
The singer Reyman is amazing.His voice is pure,clean,full of pasion,can touch the very soft part of your heart.And after more than 4 hours of singing talking drinking his voice still remain
on the same level.It's makes you think his voice isn't just gold but diamond.Yes,beautiful as gold and hard as diamond.
And a more important thing is you can feel the joy of music from every single song he sang.That's definitely something you can't hear everyday everywhere and from every singer.
Bravo!
Tips:Stay as late as you can.The best often at the last.
