Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar

About
If only these walls could talk. Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar on the top floor of the hotel is one of the few remaining bars in our rapidly-developing city with such a long and colourful history to tell. Way before sky bars, craft beer and social media became ‘things’, drinks flowed uninterrupted at Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar from the very first moment the hotel opened way back in 1959. Not even a war could prevent thirsty politicians, journalists and soldiers from risking a sneaky happy hour beer on the patio and balconies that overlook the city and along one of its most famous and historical streets. These days, of course, the risks for guests are nowhere near the same and many things have changed. But one thing that hasn’t, is Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar’s exceptional service and its special places in the heart of our city where modernity and history continue to collide.

Great view of the area around the Opera House from a bar with lots of history. Cocktails were good but you do need to go during happy hour otherwise the bill will quickly escalate.

Popped in for happy hour and although a little pricey, the views and the live music were fabulous. We had a few cocktails and they were all made very well and the staff are well trained and spoke good English.

We went up for a happy hour drink. The location and the view of the sunset were stunning. But paying 320000 vnd (280,000++ = $22NZD )for buy one ,get one free(2 drinks total) was a rort. I can only imagine , but didn’t check, they inflate their happy hour prices.

Although not one of the highest bars in HCM, there is still a great view, particularly if you can get a table around the side. Good cocktails, nice beer selection and bar snacks. They also have live music most nights. We thought it was good value as well. Worth a evening there whilst in HCM

Loved this bar. Epic view of the city and a great respite from the craziness. Prices are more expensive than elsewhere but you pay for the view (and they are still reasonable, esp. at Happy Hour when it’s 50% off). So much history here, too!

rooftop bar in town. Great setting, great history and great views.
Oddly enough, prices are not so high as some of the other lesser rooftop bars.
So get that nostalgia and get that cocktail NOW
