I visited here a number of times while staying in HCMC. It is a really well kept bar with really nice staff. The bar downstairs is very nice and the service is really good. They provided peanuts for us while sitting at the bar which was a really nice touch. The lounge service was also very good as we used upstairs a number of times to play pool. They had made some changes since our previous visit and put in some sofas and tables in place of some of the other 'dining' tables that was there previously. This really works and makes a good difference if you are just having a few drinks like we were. A really nice and well kept bar.

We went here for an after dinner drink and found it to be a warm, inviting and relaxed bar, there is a pool table upstairs and seating downstairs. The owner manager was there and he was very friendly.

The crowd was Western mixed (Irish, US, UK, Oz) and it was busy with food service, overall it felt like an Irish bar in New York instead of Spain, which is a good thing.

I usually avoid Irish bars because they are usually a total rip-off. O Brien's is not. A nice Irish style bar with nice staff and a friendly owner. Paid two visits during my stay. The first was early evening and it was uncrowded. The second was on St. Patrick's night and the scene was mad. Irish, plastic Irish,want-to-be Irish and those who didn't know where Ireland is. The green beer was cheap.Canned Guineas and a Magniers promotion. Good for a visit as different from usual Saigon bars.

For those coming from Ireland, you will know what a shebeen is...a quiet, pleasant spot for a drink, some chat and to listen to some music. Well that what O'Brien's Factory is and well worth the visit.
