Icon Klub

Top choice bar in Luang Prabang

Imagine a place in the afterlife where writers meet and conversation is as free-flowing as the fabulous mixology cocktails. You pull up a pew next to Jack Kerouac, and Anaïs Nin is reading in a cosy chair nearby…Icon may just be this place. A sculpted angel rises out of the wall and there are poetry slams, jam sessions and kick-ass tunes.

A night here can lead you somewhere magical and may well be the highlight of your visit to the city. Run by a charming Hungarian poet this is Laos' most atmospheric bar, bar none.
