This place is totally nasty. We stopped by (without having seen the reviews on TA). We watched a fight develop and got out asap. Just looked like a nasty place - much better options available in Nhatrang.

A large group was dancing on a table, it broke and the staff tried to shake down a friend for $100 in cash that night. They warned us that if we did not pay there would be a fight. We tried to stay calm and decided to just walk away and sort it in the morning. However as promised they started a fight; a friend got sprayed with pepper spray and the rest of the security got bamboo sticks out and started to attack us. We escaped with many bruises a split lip and a half blind friend however I have no illusions about how much worse it could have been if we had stuck around.

We left Nha Trang the next day, Why Not is an ok bar but do not get drunk there and stick with your friends, we heard numerous other similar stories whilst travelling in the region.

Just arrived in Nha Trang last night and witnessed something truly horrifying... Our new friend at the bar runs up to us to tell us there is a girl who has had diarrhea and puked all over herself and the floor and is completely passed out limp in the bathroom. Girl's friends are freaking out.. they've all had the same amount to drink and are not drunk so she has clearly been drugged (unfortunately not so rare out here and it's even sometimes the bartenders who do it!). Our friend tells the staff / security (including 2 English people) and they totally ignore the issue!!! They lie about having called an ambulance and the staff stand in the doorway LAUGHING at this poor girl. My boyfriend and another guy go to try to carry her out but, thankfully, some other people have just gotten her. When I see her being carried out, she is COVERED in puke / diarrhea and is so limp it takes 4 people (2 at her arms, 2 at her legs) to put her into a taxi to take her to the hospital. The whole time, the staff are totally unhelpful and don't bat an eye... never once offering to help this girl. It's no wonder so few people ever return to Vietnam. So far, we are NOT impressed with the people and it's a really sad thing to say but so many people we've encountered have been SO rude and this was one of the worst things I have ever seen. DISGUSTING

PS. They also lied about the drink specials (handed us a free drink ticket as we walked in and by the time they came to take the order, said it was too late to use it...) Also tried to charge our friend twice for one drink and they got aggressive when she said they'd already paid.

They also lied about the shisha.. saying they keep replacing the coals and will blow it out to keep it smooth when, in fact, we had to track someone down to get 1 new coal and they were trying to refuse any more after than and the shisha was HORRIBLE at first (thankfully there is ONE nice staff member who tasted it and made a "yuck!" face and redid it for us).

In general, they were rude and treated us very strangely.. they seemed to be mocking everyone the whole time. Really weird and rude.

Friend also saw multiple LARGE RATS in their kitchen!!!

DO NOT GO THERE

Brilliant place, had many good nights here. Surprised by lots of peoples negativity towards the place and the staff, never personally had any problems, apart from with the tourists who drink too much, maybe in part to the generous portions of booze that you are served, which is not the bars problem if you can't handle it.

If you like a school disco full fo drunk teenagers then this is the place for you. Busy later on and it does get busy but check its your scene or you won't stay long. We found it pretty awful and full of cheesy bad music and drunk teenagers. Drinks and service not bad.
