Intimate, friendly and well-priced
What we say:
Named "blah blah" not because it's boring but rather due to it being a good spot to chitchat with other travellers, there's something about this narrow but cute three-storey bar/restaurant that we adore.
It gets obvious points for the cheap Tiger beer served in frosty glasses (well-priced cocktails and wine are also available), but beyond that, Blah Blah has a cheerful "neighbourhood bar" vibe that's likely to make even the most depressed of patrons crack a smile.
The ground floor bar area really is tight, which is a good thing if looking to meet others -- you can't help it, you'll literally bump into them -- but not ideal for large groups. Upstairs is a little more spacious and has tables/chairs, sofas and balcony seating, and this is where a pub quiz is held every Saturday night. An inviting rooftop lounge complete with a hammock is the place to go if needing a breath of fresh air -- there's even a bell up there in case you need to call the friendly and snappy staff to refill your glass.
Simple Western and Vietnamese dishes are served, and the bar stays open late.
Located on Hang Be Street in the old quarter, Blah Blah is easy to miss; look for the black sign with yellow letters that hangs over the footpath.
