4 - Bittersweet - Hidden Cocktail Bar 

Bittersweet - Hidden Cocktail Bar - one of the best places to enjoy Phu Quoc nightlife, is like a quiet friend who is always ready to empathize with your mood. An interesting thing about this bar is there is no menu. Customers order by telling the bartender their mood, and taste and then receive back a glass of cocktail that nowhere can be found. Even if you come here for the second, the third time with the same drink, its flavor will never be the same.  Bitterness’s opinion is that they don’t create massive products with an instant formula but make you a drink based on your story, your desired taste. Though custom-made, beverages here have a very modest price as compared to other places in Phu Quoc, approximately from 80,000 - 200,000 VND ($3.4 - 8.6)/cup, free snacks. This is really an ideal place for nightlife in Phu Quoc island.
