I agree with Michael's review from a few weeks ago...why the negativity? This place was cheap, lively, and laid back! Had not one bad thing to say about it- we enjoyed it more than alot of other places we went to! I have a feeling some of their reviews are fake, written by competing places that are intentionally negative. I... More

I don't really understand all the negative reviews to be honest. This place was petty happening when we went in December with a lively dance floor. Happy hour drink specials were reasonable. My only complaint would be that they put everyone that came in with us' drinks on the same bill that we seemed to get stuck with at the... More

Everything in one. Pool table, dance floor, Seesha/Hookah, Booze & beverages with tourist information/tour booking desk. Don't worry all not in one room. We went on 1st Jan around 10PM, still crowded. Heard remains open untill 2-3AM. Our order(Drinks & Seesha) was delivered on time. It is also surrounded by other nice eateries to be tried to quinch midnight cravings.

We went here twice, once as a couple and the second time with some friends. Had a nice dinner both times and really good cocktails the second time. The basa fish is really nice and soft, would recommend.

This is your average asian backpacker bar, cheap, half decent food and cheap drinks. There are a number of plus sides though, it is central and the staff are polite and always available

We had some drinks at the Why not bar. We wanted the DJ to play one song so we and some friends can dance a little since there was no one dancing and it was late so the place was almost empty. The rude DJ asked us to pay 100,000 dong (4.5 USD) per that one song! We were really... More

We went to that place with a few friends as it is a cheap bar for backpackers who do not want to spend much. There are some happy hour options before 11pm so it looked good to us. After our first "bucket", I began feeling sick as if I have been intoxicated somehow. As I had been eating street food... More

Why not bar is normal, not clean. Sometime, i went to this bar and drank mix-wine. But the music is not good.

Very dirty place with below average service. Tables are covered with food and drinks remains from previous guests, toilet is horrible. A lot of staff around but noone is really cares for guests. 1 time was enough to understand that this place is way below my expectations.
