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-storey building is a great rooftop bar with pool, snooker, sports on TV and a restaurant. Patrons from all walks of life and corners of society congregate here making it an excellent spot for some grade-A people watching. Note: this is not a place you’d bring children.
It’s one of our favourite spots for the unparallelled views of Mekong and night market and the cooling breeze off the river. Grab a table at the edge to enjoy both.
The views mean this place is hopping at sunset, or anytime after dark really. Draught BeerLao comes in pints, pitchers or beer towers. They also have food – but we'd stick to the drinks. If you want to mix and mingle with anyone and everyone, this is the place to be.
