Proudly the first sports-dedicated bar in Hoi An – with an unashamedly Australasian bias – 3 Dragons Sports Bar and Restaurant kicked off well and has continued to improve its services and facilities as its patronage increased. Now, with multiple screens and more space, you’ll be able to enjoy your game come hell or high water, with an ice-cold beer and a gourmet burger. A home-away-from-home for many expats, 3 Dragons is great value for money with food priced between 100,000 – 140,000 VND (4.30 – 6 USD) and leads the way when it comes to atmosphere for the big sporting events.

From a smallish front bar, akin to an English pub, the facility stretches through a dedicated central area of lounge viewing cubicles. There’s a quiet, al fresco setting out the back by the river as well where you can get away from it all (especially if your team’s getting clobbered). If you don’t like sport, this oasis also supplies a handy, bucolic retreat from the growling, barracking, and interminable abuse of the referees – both on-screen and on-seat – inside. Owners Chung Nguyen, Simon Burns and Levi Kessler work overtime to look after you, and have a solid expat following. The 3 Dragons Sports Bar & Restaurant website is also a valuable resource that features local broadcast times for all the main games.

3 Dragons also runs a weekly Pub Quiz on Wednesday nights and a Movie Night on Tuesdays – both great opportunities to get out of the house and do something a bit different. On the Australia Day Weekend (26-27 January) it plays host to Triple J’s Hottest 100!

Post ‘Covid-19 lockdown’ 3 Dragons Sports Bar & Restaurant essentially introduced an every day happy hour with cheaper beer, spirits at 50,000 VND (2.15 USD) and cocktails at 70,000 VND (3 USD). On Fridays the discounting is extended to the evenings – 50,000 VND (2.15 USD) cocktails 5pm-10pm with free nibbles 5pm-7pm.

If you like to watch the big games in a throng, 3 Dragons is the place to go, and at other times its efficient management of multiple screens ensures you won’t miss your game, no matter what code. Simply put, 3 Dragons is currently Hoi An’s premier sports bar.
