Ho Chi Minh City

As a thriving business hub, Ho Chi Minh City works hard and plays hard. You'll find plenty of lively bars and nightclubs all across District 1. The performing arts are largely represented by the Saigon Opera House and the French-government-funded Idecaf venue, which both hold regular concerts. English-language films either have Vietnamese subtitles or are dubbed (very loudly) into Vietnamese. If you want to see one, make sure you get a ticket to a subtitled screening so that you can hear the original soundtrack. For movie screening times in English, visit dimovie.vn.

    The place that really kicked off Saigon's craft beer scene, Pasteur Street is dedicated to combining American-style craft beer with uniquely Vietnamese flavors, such as jasmine, jackfruit, and chocolate. Do try a flight of beers to experience the full range of amazing flavors. Great-tasting American comfort food can be paired with the beer. The original taproom is tiny, but there's another taproom at 26A Le Thanh Ton with 12 taps and an open-air rooftop, while a third taproom with 150 seats is located at 23A Ngo Thoi Nhiem in District 3.

    AIR Saigon (formerly known as Air 360 Sky Lounge)  has fantastic views of Ho Chi Minh City, and is a great place to catch the sunset. Staff are usually attentive and the menu is a mix of Vietnamese and Western dishes. The drink prices are reasonable during happy hour (6–8 pm) but quite pricey otherwise.

    Blanchy's Lounge is one of the city's most popular late-night haunts, attracting a mix of expats, tourists, and locals. If downstairs gets too crowded for your tastes, head for the rooftop terrace on the third floor. The three-hour-long happy hour on weeknights is a great value for a flash bar in a major city. For those curious about the peculiar name, it honors the moustache of Paul Blanchy, a colonial entrepreneur who made his fortune cultivating pepper and went on to become the first mayor of Saigon (1895–1901).

    A small, trendy bar, Broma stocks an impressive array of bottled beers from all corners of the globe, and the bar staff mix an excellent cocktail. Make sure to sit in the open-air lounge on the top floor, where you will be right in between two of the city's flashiest skyscrapers (Saigon Times Square and Bitexco Financial Tower). The only drawback is the music, as customers often hijack the sound system.

    Far above the bustling crowds, Chill is an impressive open bar on the 26th floor of one of the city's modern office blocks. With unimpeded views of downtown Ho Chi Minh City and beyond, this is a dramatic vantage point to watch the sun go down and the metropolis's lights go on. It's a slick, pricey venue that attracts plenty of glamorous, well-heeled guests, but it's worth a splurge. Gentlemen, make sure you slip on some casual wear lest you have to borrow the dreaded "trousers and shoes for lend."

    A groovy little speakeasy down an alley, the Gin House has a strong focus on gins, with more than 20 of their own infusions behind the bar, including lavender and butterfly pea, seaweed and nutmeg, and green tea and pomegranate. The infused gins can be ordered as a gin and tonic, or something a bit wilder, like a gin and ginger beer. There's also a range of creative gin-centric cocktails, and with the cocktail menu divided into sections—sweet and sour; creamy; bitter and dry; herbal and spicy; and sling and fizz—there's sure to be something for every taste preference.
