“Where Fun Starts in Luang Prabang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Redbull Bar is located on the peninsula in the center of Luang Prabang, where locals, expats, and travelers all mingle freely around the Billiard and Foosball tables. Redbul is a great place to start a night of partying because it seems that everyone in town comes through there eventually and there is an open, social feeling in the place, so it's a good place to make new friends and reconnoiter before a night on the town. The service is good, the welcome is warm, the company is fun, and the mood ranges from cheerful to bacchanalian.

The cocktail menu could use some revision and expansion, but if you know your drinks the bartenders are happy to accommodate you.

For anyone who is new to Luang Prabang and looking for where the fun is, Redbul is the place to start. Things get going after 9 and close at about midnight. See you there!

“Friendly place for all types of traveller”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a great little bar right in the heart of Luang Prabang. The owners Boun and Phout are very nice and helpful. The cocktails are made well for good prices and food can be ordered in from a few places around the bar. There is free pool and a foosball table. The crowd is a mix of locals, expats and tourists and you will always find a relaxed atmosphere and good conversation. No matter what your lifestyle or culture you will feel welcome at this bar. I've been working here in Luang Prabang for quite a while and I always end up at this place meeting friends and making new ones.

“Best place for a drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Came here before dinner and having a drink. Very friendly staff welcomes me and the warm atmosphere let me come back again. It's the best place for relaxing. Especially the helpful very friendly bartender makes the start for a nice evening.

“Funky bar with a great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

By far my favourite stop for a beer or cocktail. The staff are all friendly and the owner is often there with a smile and a chat. Pool table and little soccer table thingy doodle (haha, sorry) And if you are hungry they will get food delivered for you. Nice outdoor area if you want to relax and watch life go by. I miss my Redbul bar. Hope to see you all again soon.

“Star your evening here, stay a bit longer, stay more and then have a night cap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It's the kind of welcoming bar that is genuinely hard to leave, we just loved it and often spent all evening there, why ever not? Great location, great layout, great bear - fell in love with Lao Beer and very good service too. I will be back as Luang Prabang is such an amazing place with true spirit & soul. A lot like the Redbul Bar :)
