Top Ho Chi Minh City Bars You Can't Pass Up

Top Ho Chi Minh City Bars You Can't Pass Up

After a wonderful day exploring the beautiful Ho Chi Minh City or a Night Adventure Motorbike Tour comes the exploration of the stellar nightlife of Ho Chi Minh City.

That's right - your day is not done yet

You've had a taste of some Vietnamese flavors; now it's time to quench your thirst and have some fun, Vietnamese style!

Here's a list of 10 Ho Chi Minh City bars (not in any ranking orders) worth a visit while you're here! They are all in District 1 and District 3, central districts of Ho Chi Minh City.

Level 23 Wine Bar

Address: 80 Dong Du, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1

Opening hours: noon - 2 AM

Price: VND 150,000 - VND 350,000

Located on the 23rd floor of the Sheraton Hotel, this bar is far from the highest Ho Chi Minh City bars, but the view here is no less impressive. It is good for either a romantic date or just a night when you want to play hard. From 8 PM there would be a DJ to liven up the atmosphere.

This rooftop bar provides a cozy space to hang out with friends or your special one rather than a noisy and chaotic dancing club. Like many Ho Chi Minh City bars, here you can enjoy a glass of classic cocktail or a bottle of beer and listen to live music. If somehow you fall in love with this place, don’t hesitate to come back since the interior would be redecorated from time to time, so every time you come, it would be different.

Had a drink at the EON 51 and that was pricey. The service wasn't great but we paid for the view. Heard that there is now the Landmark 81 tower offering similar view of the city; I will give this a trip when I'm coming back next for a business trip.
