Whiskey and Craft beer upscale but relaxed and not pretentious bar. Great selection of whiskey and Saigon made craft beer at affordable prices as well as mixed drinks, and Vietnamese-inspired cocktails with locally sourced and homemade ingredients.

This is second time I come here, the beers are great, the place is a little bit small, if not crowded is good, if too many people inside is too noise. 第二次來, 啤酒很讚,地方不大,沒太多人在裡面的話,喝起酒來是舒服的,如果人太多就會很吵!價格算合理~

If you're reading this review, that means you're probably already in Ho Chi Minh City, scrolling online for a nearby place to grab a drink. Put down the phone and make your way to Whiskey and Wares. It's not a place with loud music and...More

Places are what you make of them, yknow? We walked in and at first impression, being a small bar, thought we were going to be too rowdy and annoying for the other patrons. Within an hour everyone including the staff were all in on the...More
