Evita Bar

An expat favorite, Evita Bar has comfortable couch seating alongside tables which wrap around a full bar. They serve Western lunch and dinner with European and American menu items and there’s a daily happy hour.

The staff is friendly (if not particularly attentive) and the atmosphere is very cozy and nice. Pop music at a reasonable volume plays as Baseball and other sports on (muted) TVs are broadcast around the bar. Two pool tables. There’s no AC as the front area has an open ceiling, but fans are effective and keep it cool. Cute resident dog will hang out if there are table scraps given. Hours listed as midnight, but kitchen stays open until 1 am.

There is a music jam session every first Friday night and large band plays every first Sunday night (no cover).

Cafe Van Hoa

Opened in late 2018, this inviting covered outdoor cafe has friendly staff and serves delicious coffee drinks and smoothies at good prices.

Cheerful decor and live trees and plants make it a nice shady spot to sit and enjoy house-roasted coffee drinks and smoothies during the day and beer and light snacks at night (maximum two beers). Just outside the cafe are street vendors selling pastries and other foods, which patrons are welcome to bring inside to enjoy with their drink. Dog-friendly.
