What to Do at Night in Hue
Nightlife in Hue can hardly be described as scintillating. It's been said that the raciest thing about it is when the police show up and the illegal street vendors disappear like dust into thin air.
Still, if your scene is a few quiet drinks hanging out with backpackers and/or locals then there's no reason why nights out in Hue shouldn't be loads of fun.
A little out of the way. It isn't anywhere near as atmospheric as its namesakes in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Tel: (54) 820152 Brown Eyes Chillout Bar-Club Brown Eyes features a DJ, free pool table, and a friendly atmosphere. Parties of four persons or more get a free taxi paid for by the bar.

The DMZ Bar
The DMZ Bar was named after the demilitarized zone of the 17th parallel that once divided Vietnam. Located on the main hotel and restaurant street in Hue and close to two of the major riverfront hotels, the DMZ is a casual place with a pool table that offers a good choice of Vietnamese and some Italian food.
