    Wind West

    A roadhouse-style bar and restaurant, Wind West has live Lao and Western rock music most nights. Depending on the night it can be heaving or completely dead, but the interior, hung with 10-gallon hats, antlers and wooden Native American statues, lends the place a folksy atmosphere.

    Lao Boxing

    Bouts of Lao boxing are held every Saturday at 7pm at Houayhong Boxing Stadium, located northwest of the city centre. It's free, and unlike the matches in Bangkok, you can get right up in the action.

    Anou Cabaret

    On the ground floor of the Anou Paradise Hotel, the cabaret has been swinging along here for years. It's a funny place, with old crooners and a palpable 1960s feel.
