Great bar with a relaxed atmosphere. Came here for a few drinks after visits the night markets. We were lucky to get two riverside loungers/futons to watch the lightening storm over the mountains. Stunning! Staff very friendly and music decent

If you want to relax with amazing views with great food and drink, look no further! Pricy (for Laos) but still cheap. Good range of food and drinks, choice of laying back on a bamboo walkway overlooking the river or sit at a table, your...More

Walk down to Utopia was beautiful with its winding paths and cute houses along the way. When feeling hot and not inspired to use the Mekong as a swimming spot, Utopia could just be the relief you need! Find a spot overlooking the river for...More

I don’t work there. I am travelling too... however it’s every morning at 7:30am. Arrive earlier though to ensure you get a space. Enjoy

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
