“Dive bar aimed at backpackers but better than other overpriced places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

As one reviewer stated it away from the main backpacker hoards. However in reality it is in an alley with a number of cheap hotels which are popular with travellers. However it's only a 5 minute walk from DMZ bar and the Lonely Planet recommended hostels.

It's certainly a bit quieter but still aimed at the same crowd, loud music but not somewhere you can loose your hearing, and if you sit outside, you can even have a conversation. Of course you can write all over the walls, and as a reviewer said, it's a good place to get wasted, so if that's what you want, bring a pen as I didn't see any readily available.

Drinks are a lot cheaper than by the river, but watch the happy hour, although it was buy 2 and get 1 free, they will divide this by the number of people in your party, so if you're a couple, you have to buy 4 to get 6.

Pool table looked untidy but played really well, so much better than anywhere I have tried in Hue. Nice and level and almost hit straight, however the white ball had a huge chunk missing which made for an amusing few games. Just fans inside so it gets very warm in May.

The staff are efficient and don't trouble you, they're mainly older ladies wearing PJs. I didn't try the food but ate down the alley at the Family Home Restaurant and it was really bland despite its high ranking on TA.

All places nearby seemed aimed at the traveller staying in the cheap hotels close by and are not frequented by locals, so they seem to adapt their food to a preconceived idea of a western palate.

The main street had a good number of restaurants which were full of Vietnamese, I recommend trying these and I wish I had.

“Stopped here while looking for Huda's...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Stopped at Liberty Bar because the lady said it was huda's but they hadnt changed the signs yet (Huda's reviews are all recent).

Food and drinks were cheap. Drinks good. Food average. Nothing special and I'd try somewhere else next time.

Staff was friendly.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Visted this bar/restaurant several times, great respite away from the hordes. Drinks were good, food was Ok, but it was the atmosphere that I loved. I'd spend part of my afternoon updating my blog (good wi-fi), having a drink and bite to eat, chatting with whoever might be playing pool, never hassled. Nice family runs the place

Reminded me a lot of the old college bar I worked at, thats why I have dubbed this the Deadwood SEA.
