This iconic bar is a great place to watch the sun go down over the lights of the city and relax with friends. The panoramic views of the city are spectacular, particularly in the evenings when Saigon Saigon becomes the place to meet. Live entertainment nightly.

There were children there when we were. There is an outdoor terrace area which may be better than inside with the music noise etc.
