Why Before and Now Bar is special ?

Before and Now opened its doors on the 26th of May in 2003. The concept came from the Luong’s – a family of three brothers (Tuan, Thanh and Vu) and their father Mr Danh. Together with family friend and artist, Linh, they decided to open a bar that was different to anything else in Hoi An. They wanted to create a unique aesthetic; an alternative vibe. Linh’s art has always been a focal point for the bar’s mood – his expressionist pieces (often sardonic messages in Pop Art) really stood out and the bar earned a name for itself as a cool place to be.

Enjoyed a brunch here with friends. Orders included American Breakfast, English Breakfast, Tomato bruschetta, and chicken. All food was quite good! Enjoyed the cool atmosphere. Staff was a bit slow but friendly. Prices were good, especially for western food.

Good was fantastic. Grilled squid recommended by owner was great as was the papaya salad. Kids are North American food that they enjoyed too. Very hip atmosphere with cool paintings.

Absolutely loved this place. Happy hour was incredible 50,000 VND (just under $2) for a mixer and spirit and get one free. Plus between 9-12 you get a free cocktail! The music was awesome, very indie rock! And they put the football on the big screens which was also great! Loved it here!
