Bar itself is small. We visited and the band were playing a mix of oldish music. Low ceilings and full of smoke. Not our ideal venue but it was ok. Would probably not visit again...

FYI... We have installed a very large fan system to help eliminate the smoke issue. Hope you will try us again! More

Recommended by V Cafe, and just down the street near to Trung Cang hotel, I stopped in for a last drink on a night expecting it to be just another bar. Pleasant surprise - super friendly atmosphere with a great band rocking out some Beatles, Rolling Stones, Radiohead, etc. Drinks were reasonably priced, and the staff were pleasant. I came... More

Very good music and to be honest, I was sitting back and really enjoying it. Owner is a great guitar player and good musician. However it's the total package that counts. I would not come back here, because the owner was drunk and treated me and my friend very unrespectful. I was very embarrased and left right away. Also: 50... More

The guitar player who occasionally plays here is NOT the owner. (The owner is a Vietnamese woman from Dalat.) We have asked the guitar player not to enter the bar if he has had too much to drink. Sorry about that experience! More

It was rock, not blues playing. And jam night is actually covers night. And it's really expensive, people were cool though but it's under a hotel and they gotta stop playing at like 11

Sorry you hit it on a quiet or "off" night... The music and vibe depends on the crowd, and though it is usually rocking, sometimes the vibe is a bit quiet. Hope you can come back another time! More

Great atmosphere this place. There are lots of photos over the walls of Vietnam and some other places. The food was delicious. The music was great. Also not expensive

I am unable to comment on the food as we had eaten before arriving to listen to the music on offer that night and to have drinks (which were expensive). We enjoyed most of the jam-type session with various instruments played but did not enjoy the performance by the rude and insulting manager who displayed bad manners, and at times,... More

Funny little bar underneath a hotel. It's very hard to find also considering the hotel has changed its name. The place is very damp and that smell hit is as soon as we entered the building and stayed with us for our whole visit. Most unpleasant. The band was very good. The lead guitarist maybe a little brash playing ridiculous... More

Sorry about the dampness - we have recently installed a very very large fan to help solve this problem. (It's Dalat - it does get wet everywhere!) Hope you come back and try again! We'll tell the guitar player to cut the solos! :-) More

I am biased, as I live in Viet Nam and do know the owners and play music during the breaks when I visit. I always brought my travelling visitors here if they were up for the late hours. Live band with Reyman Robles as band leader who sings and plays guitar; a drummer, a base player and a second guitar... More
