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.

I was staying at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Saigon and Saigon Saigon Bar was first on my list of bars to visit. Very convenient, just across the road from the Park Hyatt. Great views and a very relaxed bar environment. Very friendly staff. I didn't get to stay for the live music. Past my bed time on the first... More

This is an iconic bar in district one frequented by many newsmen during the war. Apparently, little has changed in the design of the bar in the past 50 years. The views, breeze, and outdoor seating areas are lovely. The happy hour - 4-7 I think - is good value at 110,000 VND for a cocktail. Drink prices double after... More

An old favourite we have spent many an hour with friends at this bar. Very impressive views and oh so chic waitresses. Prices are as high as you will find anywhere in Vietnam, so be careful. We went during happy hour and paid half price. A group of young America ladies might have got the exchange rate slightly wrong as... More

Decent drinks at not absurd prices (around $10 USD), and a great view of the sunset setting over District 1 in Saigon. Inside the Caravelle Hotel; they will be more than happy to help you get a taxi when you're ready to leave. Recommend as a place for a drink before dinner.

This is one of my favorites spots in Saigon. I just love the history of the place (war correspondents used to gather here during the war for afternoon libations and discuss the day's events), you can feel it in the rattan furniture and beautiful views of the city. The staff is amazing, Ben will regale you with stories of the... More

Located in the Caravelle hotel, it´s a place were the journalist used to get together during the Vietnam War when it was just a roof... from there they used to see the whole city because it was the tallest building.

I agree with the reviewer who wrote: "don't miss the happy hour". We enjoyed drinks as the sun was going down and revelled in the view over the historic centre of Saigon. The gin selection was very good and the menu had a great list of drinks overall. Reasonably priced, considering the location!

I often went to the bar and Saigon Bar was one of my favorite bar. Compared to Roof top bar at other place, this bar isn't good: the drink was expensive, there was nothing new with the band, they played same same music as my last visit. I think the band should change or improve the performance.

The cocktails were absolutely superb - do not miss the happy hour (4-6pm). Everything is half price including the beer. Try the refreshing passion fruit cocktail after a long hot days shopping. Or the San Miguel special beer that comes with its own beer bucket to keep it on ice. We paid around (£6) for those two drinks and it... More
