During our first visit to
Luang Prabang one bar stood out from the rest: The Icon Klub.
When we return after Vang Vieng, the first night back we'll be
there. If you go to LP, you must go to Icon Klub!
Icon Klub and Elizabeth
are a do-not-miss in Luang Prabang. Great conversation, great
drinks, and great atmosphere. Kop Chai Elizabeth (:(:(:
"There are no strangers
here, only friends who have not met before"
outside truly justifies the people's bonding inside coupled with
gr8 hospitality. Cheers and keep up the good work:)
The mojito is one of the
It was sooo much fun last
night!!! :) - check out this one, Lisa,
Wonderful bar and
proprietor. I only wish I had two livers! ~
I've sampled the services
of some of the best bartenders anywhere, notably in San
Francisco (a lot), and Elizabeth is right up there with the
best. Each and every cocktail is carefully concocted.
Interesting ingredients are sometimes sliced, often diced,
almost always iced. Nice. The tunes, too, are selectively
diverse and adjustable to moods. For connoisseurs of sweet and
savory libations, lively lingering and artful ambience, a
must-drop-by in LP. (Best to leave the iPod in the backpack.)
ICON KLUB was THE bar to
go to in Luang Prabang. I couldn't have wished for a better
place to relax, listen to damn good music, have a drink and a
chat. Liz is the best bartender and I still haven't experienced
another mojito like the ones she makes. Can't wait to go back!
What an awesome place to
hang out & meet fellow travelers. Elisabeth's amazing drinks go
well with her creative & inspirational decor. Icon Klub is a
must when visiting LP!
Bologna and BEST bloody
mary's ever!...the secret is, well located just in LP at Icon
Klub, thanks Elizabeth Vongsaravanh for the pleasure!
Best night in Luang
Prabang!!! Thanks to our most beautiful hostess Lisa... love love
love. We will always remember the best Bloody Mary and the best
Mojito in all of Southeast Asia. You all have to meet Lisa and
cap the night off here if you're ever in LP. Ash and I will miss
this place when we leave...lalala...summer lovin' had me a
Le meilleur bar aperitif
de luang prabang , rapport qualite-prix.
Despite the shot of Chuck
Norris knocking out my English vocabulary, it was a bloody good
drink. I’ll be back tonight for another dose!

Thanks for the good times,

Best little bar in SE
Asia... No contenders!!
From a poem by Zakariya
Amataya: "In the serene night Silence shouted in my heart Raving
about someone I have never known Yet claiming we were once so
close I looked up to the sky that night. And saw a face in the
shadow of the moon Her eyes stared intently down on me I
perceived myself in the eyes of a stranger Her eyes suggested a
Fall into the Icon Klub
and forever remember Luang Prabang. Cocktails for the mind and
laughter for the soul. Don't forget the 5-second rule!"
The best place to get a
drink in Luang Prabang! The early evenings at Icon Klub are
chill, relaxed, and calming, much like the ambiance and decor.
By night, you never know what you're going to get - 80's dance
party, cards, shots on fire? It's a MUST when in Luang Prabang!
Great mojitos and gin/vodka tonics. ~ Alexa
Icon Klub is the
only real bar in Luang Prabang. Do yourself a favour and
order a Cherry-sour. And try and avoid talking to the owner
- she is soooo annoying... ~ Kearrin Sims
Cool décor, relaxed
atmosphere and tasty, creative cocktails. You're bound to
meet some of the most interesting characters in Laos right
at Icon. After five months of traveling through Southeast
Asia, I never met a bartender/proprietor as warm and
welcoming as Lisa. Whether it’s a slow night or the bar is
packed, she makes you feel less like a customer and more
like a friend. Great conversation, salsa dancing in the
rain, stylish artwork, fascinating people, good music and
the coolest bartender in SE Asia – all things I experienced
within a few nights at Icon. Definitely a must if you’re in
Luang Prabang. ~ James M. Soviero
Love the Icon Klub.
Only problem with the Icon Klub is I remember walking in,
but I can’t remember walking out. Would recommend the bar to
anyone who visits Luang Prabang. ~ Frankie Jerman
Icon Klub lives up to
its name with its enigmatic and iconic propriortress Lisa
who makes your time there something special ! If you ever
saw the TV show cheers, this is what the club makes you
think of, people from all corners of the globe are there
(literally) and she turns everyone of them into family by
the end of the night. Its a really special place. And this
is before you get to the cocktails, ask Lisa to pick one for
you, she wasn't wrong once with me, and the Jolly DOM there
is so good I had to tell the world about it!www.foodspotting.com/reviews/822317
- can't wait
to get back there! ~ Alison Kari-Cox
Icon Klub - so much
more than a bar. It delivers the pinnacle of traveling
experiences by providing a place that never leaves you. Lisa
is the best bar person ever. Shes quirky, witty, bright as a
spark and the purveyor of excellent, creative cocktails.
This bar would be a hit in the cool area of any cosmopolitan
city, but that you find it amidst the magic of Luang Prabang
gives you the icing on the cake. ~
Icon bar is one of the
best bars I've ever been in my life and as an Irish man,
i've been in many. Lisa, as a host is kind, happy, generuous
with her time and extremely funny, she is the bar. No visit
to Luang Prabang would be complete without spending your
evenings at Icon, chatting to the many wonderful people who
drink there. Be prepared to extend your visit as you'll
never want to leave. In the famous words of Arnold, "i'll be
back". X ~ Stephen Doyle
The Icon Klub is a
very cool looking bar. This is emphasized by the many
photographers taking a picture of its facade. Inside Lisa
and the people i met there singlehandedly turned my three
day stay into more than two weeks. How can you not like a
place that greets you with a smile and a tall Pastis the day
after you drunkenly forget to pay before staggering home.
And I was there for the birth of the now (presumably)
legendary Jolly Dom. Anyone near LP should make a special
effort to stop by as i doubt you will regret it. Much love.
Yes basically what
everybody above said! Your bar is brilliant and word deserve
no less!!! Dirty Martinis all the way!!! Xx would not word.

The Icon Bar has a
pre-war furnace in her heart. You speak with fellow souls.
