Bars and Clubs


Fucking Hilarious! Don't Worry, I've never seen him out

There are lots of bars and clubs in Saigon.  For simplicity sake, I’m breaking them out into three categories — For those who haven’t read my blog much, I tend to like middle of the road to high end spots so, you’re not gonna find many write-ups here for backpacker style travel.  One of these days I might just add a list for Pham Ngũ Laõ street which is where a lot of that stuff exists.  This is not an all inclusive list, just the places I tend to like and, I think you will too!

Local Bars / Live Music

  • Bui (the Lodge is the English name) – live music
  • Tram Trim –  not really a bar, but, a great place to drink and eat.  Some call it the Vietnamese hooters
  • Napoli
  • 17 Saloon

Take Home Style

  • VIC
  • The Little Bar
  • 35 Hai Ba Trung
  • 51 Hai Ba Trung

Expat Style (girls speak English, never quite as cute)

  • Ginger 60 (by far my favorite expat bar)
  • Voodoo
  • #5 Bar
  • M52 – better of late

Night Clubs (Discos as the locals call them)

Hip Hop

  • Lush
  • Velvet
  • Fuse
  • Apocolypse Now (Barely makes my list – late night option with the best sausage dish in town)
  • Chill
  • Go2 (Barely makes my list – late night option)

Dance / Techno
