“The best night out you can have in Laos!”
Review of Dao Fah Night Club

Dao Fah Night Club
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 December 2015

This place is awesome, depending on what time of the evening you go, you may catch some live music or Karaoke with impromptu performances from the well-dressed men in the audience who ate cajoled into getting on stage - good singers though, to raffles/tombolas with bottles of whiskey being the prize, to the late night scene which might start with some old Laos classics with people of all ages enthusiastically dancing Laos-style (with the bendy fingers), and then on to pumping dance/hip-hop/pop – again with impromptu MC-ing from the often female DJ. This place is an assault on the senses to newcomers as it’s arguably the only place where you will really see what the locals get up to behind closed doors (letting their hair down), not to mention the place is lit almost entirely by neon lights! When going for a toilet break, enjoy a shoulder massage and don’t forget to chuck the attendant some change. Tourists are welcome but always show respect and you will be treated well, not to mention looked after by security - who are really there to make sure your night goes well. The charm this place holds is rough charm, it’s a rough gem, but it’s REAL – a local place – and let’s hope it’s not built over for a good long time yet. We all remember a disco like this.

Loved this venue, and the night we went there it was jam packed! It's a struggle to order anything but beer or whiskey but I eventually managed to get a goblet of vodka after much confusion. The toilets are interesting. The music was exactly what we were after and there were few tourists there the night we visited. Unfortunately due to the local curfew the venue closes before midnight. But we headed out the bowling alley (as you do!) to continue the festivities and round off the evening perfectly!

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
