Samlo Pub and Restaurant (Vientiane)

By Tibs →
Samlo is an expat/tourist pub and restaurant located on Rue Setthathirath in Vientiane. It looks a bit dirty and old, with torn seats and peeling paint, but in a way it adds to its charm. It is normally fairly busy every night of the week, mostly thanks to regular patrons. They come to play pool or foosball, to watch live sports and to drink cheap beer (small lao for 10,000 kip). There is also Western food (40,000-70,000 kip).

Wind West Pub (Vientiane - Laos)

By Tibs →
Wind West is a popular live music pub located in Rue Setthathirath in downtown Vientiane. It was packed when I visited (Saturday night) with a chic local crowd and about 10% of foreigners (expats or tourists). The oldest bar in Vientiane (since 1992), it is housed in an independent building that you can easily spot from the street. There is no entrance fee and a dress code normally applies (no shorts and no sandals, though most foreigners didn't respect the rule).
