You might not have heard of Hue nightlife frequently before this because of the rising popularity of its UNESCO-listed citadels, royal tombs, and pagodas. However, tourists can have a great time in Hue by sightseeing till the sun sets and then looking for stellar ways to spend their nights, with alcohol, some dancing or just some great food! Most of these are located at a mere 15-minute drive from the Hue Imperial City and are situated along the hip backpacker streets of Pham Ngu Lao, Le Loi, and Nguyen Cong Tru. If you are looking for something fancier than this, many 5-star properties in Hue have their own bars and bistros where you can unwind after a hectic day of sightseeing!

6. Phuong

Of the most modern nightclubs in Hue, Phuong stands out as a winner because of its sheer size and brilliance. It resembles other more mainstream clubs that one can find in Hanoi or Saigon in Vietnam. The architecture resembles that of a theatre with 2 floors and a stage where sexy dancers come to shake a leg. The music is almost always live Vietnamese pop or loud Vina House. The waiters here are known for their warm and courteous service and this is a local’s favorite!

All safe and no risk makes a vacation a dull one (for some people, at least). If you want to go crazy in Hue, you should check out this underground nightclub that is located in the middle of Pham Ngu Lao street.

It is a bit dark inside so don’t get spooked out if you were expecting a terrace with views of the river, The crowd is mostly that of youngsters and this is a great place to experience the underground Hue nightlife.

The location is as cool as the name of this bar! It is actually a hostel located in a stunning location which is perfect for party-people visiting Hue! Why not Bar is a small pub but with great reviews that boasts of its far-west theme complete with the wooden decor, staff wearing cowboy hats, red bricks etc. It is the youngest bar in the list and was started only a year ago. We love that this bar is embraced by people of different nationalities, especially tourists and backpackers.
