Wine 95 is the newest wine bar in Vientiane and has opened up between Jazzy Brick and Jules Classic Bike Rentals. Coincidence? Not at all.

For a long time I would drive past the construction site of Rashmi’s Plaza Hotel every day watching the massive megalith slowly take form. Suddenly one day it opened, replete with flashing silver spirit houses guarding the front entrance and sparkling tower adorning the top. After often wondering what the interior would be like, Work Live Laos was lucky enough to receive a guided tour just last week.

The plan is for the park to become the newest entertainment venue in Laos for outdoor activities, something that has been lacking in Vientiane for a very long time.

Kaluah Bar

Kaluah Bar

If you like squeezing yourself into a teeny-tiny wooden seat, enjoy the smell of freshly cut flowers and listening to traffic roaring past, then Kaluah Bar is for you. At a gander Kaluah Bar looks like a funky new place to have an after-work drink or sip a cocktail early on a Friday evening. It’s positioned well near the thousand-and-one florists on Rue Dongpaina (Sengdara Street) meaning it’s also a great place for a last drink before crashing if you live on that side of town. Good position, funky-ish atmosphere, long list of drinks: you would think it had a lot going for it.
