Dresden Lao

Dapper waiters in crisp white shirts and fitted black vests shake up classic cocktails in this sophisticated yet low-key, understated bar.

Dresden Lao is the child of Dresden Japan, a bar in Shinjuku, Tokyo established in 1951. Story has it that patrons of Dresden Japan requested they open another in Vientiane and in 2014 Dresden Lao was born.

The uniforms match the sleek monochrome decor and the elegant solid wood bar with brass railing is an inviting spot to sit and chat with others, and watch in awe as staff hand carve spherical ice cubes. There’s just about every high quality cocktail available at 40,000 to 50,000 kip, the price competitive with other good watering holes in town. They also have 30 single malts, 17 blended whiskeys, 10 bourbons and seven Japanese whiskeys. It’s a top-notch place without any pretension.
