The nightlife in Vientiane is very laid back and relaxed. Beer is available pretty much everywhere. The local rice wine affectionately known as Lao Lao packs quite a punch. Have a few cocktails and watch the sunset over the Mekong at Spirit House, Bor Pen Nyang, Highlander or Chok Dee. If you miss a bit of Irish action, visit O’Gradys’ and try their in-house specialty, Seamuson.
