Drinking and nightlife in Southern Laos

  • Nightlife in Don Det & Don Khon

    4000 Island Bar

    Good Western and Indian food, cold drinks, friendly service and a soothing vibe combine to make this a perennial favourite among travellers. You can make new friends around the pool table, throw some darts, play your favourite tunes or just kick back, relax and enjoy the view.

    Jhai Coffee House

    Billing itself as the world’s first completely philanthropic coffee roaster and cafe located at the source, Jhai buys its beans at fair-trade prices from the Jhai Coffee Farmer Cooperative and puts 100% of profits back into local water and hygiene projects and children's education needs. It's a surprising little oasis with perfect coffee (12,000K to 15,000K) in the centre of Paksong town.

    Won Coffee

    Though run in part by 'Mr Koffie', this is very much a local spot. Besides regular organic coffees (from 10,000K), he produces his own civet-excreted kopi luwak (30,000K per cup or 250,000K per 100g) and leads coffee tours. It's in the centre of town. Look out for the 'Won Coffee' sign.

    Champahom

    A chill place to drink and snack, this Thai-owned bar has live music (usually Carabao-style Thai country music) most nights except Sunday from about 7.30pm to 9pm.
