During my trip to Da Nang last week, I stayed in an apartment nearby Da Nang’s long stretch of My Khe beach. The apartment was conveniently located to restaurants, 24-hour supermarkets and obviously the beach and had the most stunning view of the beach and city. I booked the place through Airbnb and it was one of the most impressive accommodations I’ve stayed in Da Nang, so you can go check out the details in my previous article.
In the evening after a long day of sightseeing in Hoi An and swimming at my favourite beach, An Bang, my friends and I went out to streets looking for a great place to quench our thirst. We were expecting to find some beachfront bars or cafes to sit by the beach and listen to the waves while drinking. But, there was no place on the beach, but across the road and all of them near where we stayed were restaurants.
So we had to turn away from the beach and look around elsewhere. Our endeavour for a perfect bar did not last long because it soon started to rain. So we ran a bit and into a bar called N Pub. To our great surprise, we felt as though we just hit the jackpot, because reggae music was playing and the hut-like bar has its corners with artistic decor, which were all very assuring.
What’s more surprising was that two of my friends had been to this bar during their previous trip in Da Nang two years ago and we just accidentally ended up here again. We were here for an aperitif before dinner, so we ordered a bottle of wine, which was only about 400,000VND (much cheaper compared to bars in Hanoi).
The vibe here is super laid-back and beach-like, the music they were playing was perfect to unwind and the staff was super sweet. After a few bottles of wine, we went for an amazing seafood dinner and we went back to the bar again after dinner.
I heard that the owner is an artist, so that’s perhaps why there’s a little studio area with paints, brushes and canvases in one corner. They hold some cool events like paint night, live music, quiz night etc and I’d love to be back here again for those events in the future.
There’s a pizza station on one side, which I found so tempting for the entire night especially when I was pretty tipsy and the white board reads “Angry Pizza” that sounds so decadent and seductive. Unfortunately, I couldn’t try the pizza this time, but I surely will when I go back.
N Pub is certainly a treasure we discovered and we had a blissful time here. When you visit Da Nang, go visit this chillaxing bar for an aperitif or after-dinner drink.
