This is one of my favourite (rooftop) bars to chill and relax in while having some drinks. It's very much quieter than some of the other rooftop bars and has a real sense of calm and chill about it. It overlooks 'walking street' and is surrounded by a wonderful collection of high-rise buildings that illuminate at night time to give... More

Stopped by around midnight for a drink with a mate. Was okay, but loud and crowded so we didn't feel comfortable since we just wanted to chat and catch up. A so-so experience, but I'd imagine it better with a crew of friends on a night out.

The city is full of rooftops which makes it pretty special and unique to other countries/cities so you have to try them. This rooftop bar had a DJ, a casual vibe and great views of course. However the cocktails weren't the best - tasted like they were pre-mixed and that was backed up by the fact they arrived too quickly... More

If you are in District one and doing a rooftop bar hop and find the Rex, Caravelle (Saigon Saigon Bar) or even the Sheraton a little to crowded and looking for a nice quiet spot to enjoy a sundowner then head to this bar. Not to hard to find as it is a few doors down from the Duxton, but... More

We visited this place whilst out with some friends who lived in HCM City. A nice and simple bar with a good choice of drinks and cocktails with medium price range. A solid rooftop bar with the occasional acoustic open mic nights. Would return.

Decent place to have a quick drink. Sadly feels like it should be way cooler than what it is. Drinks list is ok, music often good, staff a bit distracted. Sometimes plagued by mozzies, but there's a convenience store very close to buy repellent.

Right there on Nguyen Hue promenade, it's worth to stop by for drink and enjoy music. Love Tequila + cointreau cocktails. Price is reasonable

Not sure which is the official page but this is the review I previously left: This is a little gem of a place that not a lot of people would really know much about. It's in a great location but is very discreetly hidden from the street level. There are a number of narrow stairs to endure before you reach... More

I went on my own on a Tuesday night and had a great time. I sat at a table over looking the street so it was a cool view. Drinks are expensive by Vietnam standards, I had 2 cocktails that were 160,000 dong each. They were crazy strong though so definitely all I needed! Tuesday nights are also open mic... More

We went there on the first night that we landed in HCMC and we love it. They played good music and not too loud so we can talk easily. Staffs are nice.
