It‘s known as a pretty fashionable bar as it follows a strict dress code – shorts and slippers are absolutely not allowed. Although the drinks are quite expensive at about 20 USD for a cocktail, you can get drinks for half the price during happy hours from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.

4. Fresh Beer in Pham Ngu Lao area

Address: Pham Ngu Lao street
Opening Hours:

It’s easy to find a cold beer in the backpacker district of Pham Ngu Lao, where you can witness the hustle and bustle of the city at any time of the day. There, you’ll find many stalls that sell bia hoi, a type of non-branded beer contained in a large jar. While you're there, try the local beer, which often comes with a red or green label.
