“Hybrid Club”
Review of Dao Fah Night Club

Dao Fah Night Club
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Went there at 10pm and before we could warmed up it closed punctually at Midnight.Not really surprised or disappointed as this is Luang Prabang.Quite a good crowd even at closing time and there were many groups of young Ladies drinking by themselves.Disco Music was played but no one was on the Dance floor so not sure they wanted it to be a Lounge or a Disco.A Hybrid maybe?
One thing for sure some of the Females are prepared to follow you for more drinks,supper,etc as long as they are convinced that you are not a Cheap Charlie.
Luang Prabang is a beautiful place and the Nightlife should not be the Attraction,the midnight closing time should remain,and God forbid no AGo Go Bars please.

It only really goes off for 2 hours or so
Get there between 9-30 and 10 p.m. earlier and the place is empty
Most times I have been there it kicks off with a band
Before the normal dj takes over
The lao get into it as soon as they arrive
Good option for drinks is a beer tower if there are afew of you

LOGISTICS
Due a strict curfew all the drinking venues inside Luang Prabang's city close at around 11.30pm. After this time you have to go to one of two places outlying the city; Dao Fah nightclub or Luang Prabang bowling alley. According to Lonely planet this place is only open from 9-11.30pm. However, when we went there (admitingly on a Saturday) we stayed until 1am in the morning (we left ourselves rather than the club closing) so I think it's later on the weekends. It is located outside of town off the road to the southern bus terminal.

REVIEW
Went to this place once on a Saturday at around 11.30pm. It is based in a building that sort of resembles a warehouse. Inside the club there were a lot of people (maybe 200) of which ~85% were Lao and ~15% were Westerners. There is a large lowered square area in the middle with elevated levels on either side. There are small high tables everywhere. At the bar you can pretty much just get beer lao which is fairly cheap at around 20,000kip for a big one. However, you can't really get spirits. They stock only (when I went) Johnny walker scotch and chivas regal, and they don't have coke or other mixers so you have to shot it if you want it. Everyone inside the club drinks beer Lao and stands around the small tables. Within the club are some great lighting effects and a DJ playing very loud tunes. In that regard it has the atmosphere of a normal club except that the Lao people inside just stand around drinking beer and not moving. It's a bit bizzare. Has a nightclub look and atmosphere but the people inside act like they are in a pub, The 30 or so Westerners that were in there moved to the front of the club and tried to make a make-shift dance floor but it felt like the other 170 people in the club were just starring. It was a bit odd but nevertheless an interesting experience and one I would recommend to others.
