The Spirit House
What we say:
This bar and restaurant is tastefully built in the likeness of its namesake.
It is one of Vientiane's finest, with the most extensive cocktail menu in town and satisfying selection of Western and Lao food. The bartenders take great pride in their cocktails, which include some spectacular concoctions like a green-tea infused gin and tonic or a martini with sake and pickled ginger.
If you're not that adventurous, there's more familiar mixes plus imported beers, cognacs, whiskeys and a very impressive wine list. Drinking here is almost affordable during their 17:00 till 20:00 happy hour, when cocktails are 25% off.
If you get peckish, the food is as elegant as the drinks with a selection of tapas and sandwiches or full meals like steak or house-made meat pies. It's also one of the best places in town for a full breakfast. Whatever you choose to order, your needs will be impeccably tended to. Free WiFi for customers.
