Popular riverfront bar

What we say: 4 stars

As carefree as its name ('no worries' in Lao) suggests, this is a popular traveller bar and restaurant right on the riverfront.

At the top of this four-story building is an attractive rooftop bar with pool, snooker, sports on TV, a stage and a restaurant. Patrons from all walks of life and the deepest recesses of society congregate here, making it an excellent spot for a night out or some grade-A people watching.

The great views of the river make it a popular place to be for sunset, or anytime after dark really, and the bartender can mix a special sunset cocktail. The food is decent, and the kitchen can prepare pub grub like burgers, nachos and chicken wings and Lao specialties like river fish, laap and stir-fries. If you want to mix and mingle with fellow travellers, this is the place to be.
