Hoi An is a great town for shopping but when it comes to nightlife it can be rather quiet compared other cities in Vietnam. I will outline 5 venues that stand out from other bars in Hoi An. No backpacker bars in this list.
1 – Soul Kitchen
Located on An Bang beach, Soul kitchen is a great place to hang out day or night. Beautiful beach front set up and has become a great venue for live music. French operated, Soul kitchen offers a great variety of tapas, main courses, cocktails and a good wine selection.
Soul kitchen offers live concerts from Thursday to Sunday from 5.30pm and it does get busy for a reason…..
