Red Apple Bar, Nguyen Thien Thuat (South of the intersection with Biet Thu). Located in front of the Backpacker Hostel, this bar is easily identified by an old Willies Jeep parked out the front, and the neon red apple on the wall. Drinks range from cheap and massive to expensive and small, dependent on whether you are happy with no-name local brand spirits or would rather have a well-known brand from home. 45,000 dong will get you a "bucket" (approximately a pint of your chosen cocktail - quite strong), and the backpacker hosts who circulate through the bar will also often be giving away shots or other drinks to keep the mood flowing. Not a bad place to lose a night in Nha Trang.
