For the most part, Hoi An is a town that sleeps early, but you can find a few good nightspots. Tam-Tam Café has long been a popular spot for travelers, expats, and locals. Hai Scout Cafe (98 Nguyen Thai Hoc St.; tel. 0510/386-3210) is a popular late-night hangout for travelers, offering standard bar drinks as well as cappuccino and espresso and some great baked treats. Friendly Hai runs the show at this long-popular courtyard bar and cafe, where, as the Beastie Boys say, "The candlelight is just right, the hi-fi is in the background, and the wine is delicious." Treat's Same Same Café (158 Tran Phu St., at the intersection with Le Loi; tel. 0510/386-1125) is also usually hopping as late as it can and has a pool table and a guillotine (for show, of course). Also check out Treat's Same Same Not Different Bar at 93 Tran Hung Dao St. (tel. 0510/386-2278), which is, in a word, similar. ChamPa (75 Nguyen Thai Hoc; tel. 0510/386-2974) has comfy chairs, good wine, and a cozy, late-night atmosphere with frequent cultural dance performances. Mango Rooms (111 Nguyen Thai Hoc; tel. 0510/391-0839) is the town's most popular little bistro and gathering point for local expats and visiting literati.
