The best things to do after dinner in Da Lat include quite a few interesting establishments at the more upmarket venues. For the most part, the city's nightlife is rather lacking, as it's more famous for its rich colonial atmosphere as well as for having many great natural sites. However, for those determined to enjoy their evenings, you will be able to find some places for some fun after dark.

    Many new arrivals in Vietnam are surprised to discover locally produced wine. Thanks to the French, who introduced this beverage to the country, there is a young but growing wine industry in and around Da Lat with Vang Da Lat (aka Wine Da Lat) and Da Lat Beco, the 2 main producers. Customers can find interesting local-made beverages on Dalat’s restaurant menus including Bordeaux-style wines, sparkling white wines, peach coolers and wine coolers. Read on for ideas on where to go in Da Lat at night.
