Romeo and The Pavilion is a nightlife complex in Vientiane consisting of a nightclub (Romeo), a live music hall (The Pavilion), a beer garden, a restaurant and a karaoke.
It is quite far from the city center (at least 5 kilometers) but still, I wanted to check it as it seemed to be popular with the local elite. In particular, it targets the Laotian-Chinese community with the same kind of ostentatious, over-the-top design you may have seen elsewhere in Chinese clubs in Asia.
I arrived just before midnight and it was almost deserted. In the nightclub: Nobody. In the beer garden: Nobody. In the live music hall: Maybe just 20 people. The staff told me people would come later on but I doubt it.
Judging from the pictures on their Facebook page though, they have some busy nights. I guess it depends on the artists playing on that evening. Don't make the same mistake I did. Before going, check if they have a special event or not.
Overall: Both Romeo and The Pavilion have potential but without customers, it's hard for me to recommend them. If you have visited them yourself, please leave a comment below.
