Sook Savan

Top choice bar in Savannakhet

The atmospheric Sook Savan occupies a strategic corner overlooking Savannakhet Sq and draws a lively crowd from about 7pm onwards. Beer is the main ingredient on the menu here, but it also offers traditional Laotian food with a spicy kick to help wash it down. Live music on weekend nights and a bit of a party atmosphere.

It's part of a mini Sook Savan empire in this part of town that includes a nearby restaurant and a boho cafe.
