Description: Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.

“Complete chill zone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Recommend this place to relax, overlook the river and watch the world go by. Very relaxing. Probably the most relaxing bar in Luang. Quite a few dozing on the terrace when we were there.

Places to sit or lay down and chill with a Beer Lao. Good service. Fair prices.

“Awesome comfortable place to unwind.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled across Utopia by accident and were pleasantly surprised.
We chilled out on the comfy floor mats/tables for a beer Lao and then dinner.
The food was good and service excellent. The atmosphere is the main draw card. It is totally relaxed and the place is decorated well and on the river if you want a view.
If we weren't leaving tomorrow we would go back for sure.

“Nice setting, service unremarkable, food good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had lunch here, a bit out of the way, nice little setting. Luang Prabang sausages (bangers and mash) were very good, but missing the Dark Beer Lao gravy described. Veggie sandwich was also good.

“Wish I could live there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Gorgeous riverside setting with strong drinks and chill music - you cannot go wrong with Utopia. Don't miss it while you're in LP! If you're not a backpacker, go earlier in the evening before the crowds swarm - the view is well worth it!
